Over the course of three hours of “Fox and Friends” on Wednesday morning, a new Trump-themed Lego knockoff set was highlighted three times, as hosts dissected whether the toy could be a gift for “kids or the Trump voter.”
The toy set is made by Keep and Bear, a conservative company, and includes a figurine of President Trump as well as a “Make America Great Again hard hat” and MAGA building blocks, “encouraging kids to build the wall,” Fox News’ Jillian Mele said during the segment.

The packaging also showcases racist imagery of immigrants with a figurine dressed in a sombrero and playing maracas on the other side of the “wall,” as Media Matters pointed out.
