[Ed. – CNN’s always got to be starting something. You’d think they’d learn, at some point. (It would be a chuckle if Obama did violate DOD rules when — as Ben Bowles pointed out — he did a similar thing.)]
The Air Force stated that the airmen at Ramstein Air Base in Germany did nothing wrong and broke no rules.
“There is no rule against Airmen bringing personal items to be signed by the president,” USAFE said in a statement.
USAFE said troops held the hats for signing, but did not wear them while in uniform.
USAFE said it is unaware of any actions during the event that amounted to a violation of regulations.
The items Trump signed at BOTH bases came from the soldiers.
