Lake, 22, and a Sen. Bernie Sanders supporter, told Staten Island Advance that the cap was inspired by and an answer to Trump’s slogan.
“The point of the hat was to say America needs changing and improvement,” Lake told the Advance. “I don’t think it’s a positive message to say, “Let’s look to the past.'”
Despite the cap’s message, she emphasized that “I don’t hate America. I’m not an anti-American.”
People on social media expressed strong opinion of the cap — both positive and negative.
