DENVER -- President-elect Donald Trump, whose win over Hillary Clinton shocked the world, surprised supporters this week with a one-of-a-kind Christmas gift -- an ornament resembling the iconic "Make America Great Again" red cap.

The unique holiday gift was announced in an email Wednesday, according to Mashable

"This collectible ornament commemorates Trump’s commitment to the Christmas spirit and will be a great addition to your family’s tree this year," Trump's website reads, adding the ornament was "proudly made in the USA." 

But not everyone is feeling the holiday cheer, especially on Amazon*, where the product has 1.7 out of 5 stars based on 3,000 plus customer reviews.

"It called Mary a nasty woman, told Joseph to go back where he came from, built a wall around the manger, and then when you press it it sings "I'm Dreaming Of A Totally White Christmas."

"My office puts up a tree every year and we pool resources to get a really nice ornament, usually on the pricey side. For example, 8 years ago we got a really nice, hand crafted ornament from Hawaii. We liked it so much, we decided to get another one just like it 4 years later. Well, this year we all got together and chose a sedate, classy ornament from a shop in New York. My New York friends swore by their work and so we voted and chose it. But then this red and gold POS showed up in the mail and we can't figure out why! We went through the vote hat again and we definitely voted for the New York piece with overwhelming numbers. I'm a bit worried that our manager, who thinks he's special and soooo sELECTIVE, might have gone over our heads and ordered this one instead.

It turns out we can't get a refund and now we're stuck with the ugly thing. We put it on the side of the tree facing the wall, but it must be bewitched or something because it keeps reappearing at the top of the tree every morning! We found our angel topper in the corner crying. We don't know what happened and she says she's afraid to tell us =/"

"Every autumn my family chooses a new ornament to go onto our holiday tree. This year it was between this ornament and another one that is less flashy, less gaudy, and just overall nicer. During our family meeting we overwhelmingly chose the other ornament but somehow we still ended up with this one. We're not sure what happened."

"This ornament is -- and let me tell you folks, NO ONE has studied ornaments like I have -- it's just SO terrific!! I mean, I put it on my tree -- not low where only Crooked Hillary -- she's a nasty woman -- ISIS!! -- not where she could see it, but up high. It's up there -- up higher than any ornament HAS EVER BEEN -- to show that Christmas is NOT a disaster any longer. ISIS!! I'm giving America this ornament -- Obama gave Iran the nuclear codes!! -- the BEST ORNAMENT EVER DESIGNED -- just to show that my good friend Bill Ford -- he and I go way back -- is going to keep jobs in America!

"Question: What size is this? Dimensions. Answer: It's yuge." 

"Question: Will this ornament keep all of it's pre-holiday promises? Answer: Only the promise to imprison all blue ornaments. The tree will be protected at all times by a gingerbread wall. The Lollipop Guild will pay for that wall. The wall will be decorated with white icing ONLY"

Below, a promotional video of the Christmas ornament, created by the Trump campaign. 

*Editor's Note: While the product is available in Amazon, the original seller is the Trump website, starting at $149.
