Biden campaign hats have been a source of pride for Barack Obama and Joe Biden, who have campaigned in their hometowns, but they have been increasingly criticized by supporters for wearing the same hats to other political events and in other states.
The hats have also been criticized by people who say the president is using the hats to help sell his economic stimulus package and the president’s re-election bid.
On Wednesday, Biden’s campaign unveiled a new campaign slogan, a nod to the hats, called “A symbol of Hope.”
“The president’s slogan is a symbol of America,” the campaign said in a statement.
“This slogan is not a slogan of hope, it is a slogan for Americans to celebrate.”
The slogan has been endorsed by many Democrats, including Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, who said it “underlines the power of the American economy.”
A day earlier, Biden also tweeted a photo of a campaign official wearing a “A” hat, a reference to the campaign’s “A Better Deal” initiative.
Biden, the vice president of the United States, also said on Wednesday that the hat campaign is “a symbol not just of hope but of hope in the United State.”
The hats are a symbol not only of hope – a symbol for hope in our country – but of America.
A Better Deal.

Biden and his campaign have also taken aim at the GOP’s health care bill and the Democrats push to enact a new Medicare system.
“The Republican health care proposal is a bad deal for seniors and the working families of this country,” Biden said.
“It would slash Medicare by $878 billion over the next decade and make the health care system the worst in the world.
The Democrats plan is a plan to put seniors and working families ahead of the lobbyists who sell it to the public.”
“We’re going to make it clear to Republicans that we don’t want to be part of this charade,” Biden added.
