President Donald Trump visited Wisconsin on Tuesday and was greeted happily by Governor Scott Walker, who wasted no time in presenting the 45th president a gift.

Walker gave Trump, who had just landed in Kenosha, a custom-made Milwaukee Bucks jersey and a hat that was a play on words from Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan. The hat read, “Make The Bucks Great Again” in white print on the forest-green colored hat.

Notably, the Bucks were playing the Toronto Raptors in Game 2 of the NBA Playoffs on Tuesday evening, and Trump’s speech focused around buying american products. He signed a “Buy American, Hire American” executive order after the speech in front of dairy farmers from Wisconsin who are in a trade dispute with Canada, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.

Walker tweeted out the gift he was about to present to Trump before Air Force One landed, but that caused quite the stir on social media.

Some thought the hat implied that the Walker considered the Bucks a bad team, despite being the No. 6 seed in the playoffs.

Responding to the outcry on social media, Walker tweeted photos of him presenting Wisconsin-themed sports gear to President Barack Obama later Tuesday evening. He said that nobody was complaining when he handed Obama a custom-made Green Bay Packers jersey or Milwaukee Brewers jersey.

Buck senior vice president Alex Lasry is notably a Democrat. He spoke out against Trump’s executive order immigrant travel ban January 28 on Twitter, saying that it’s a “massive problem.”

In November, the Bucks announced that they would no longer stay at Trump-brand hotels on road trips, joining the Memphis Grizzlies and Dallas Mavericks in doing so.
