Donald Trump has sold a lot of merchandise over the years. He's had ties, shirts and even bottled water.

This week, however, shoppers at the gift shop in New York's Trump Tower had an opportunity to buy some very special Trump-branded items.

These included Trump Ku Klux Klan hoods, rubber sheets, Russian flags and postcards trumpeting Vladmir Putin as the 45th president of the United States.

The items were not made or endorsed by Trump himself, however.

Gothamist reports that they were created by two local artists, who then placed the merchandise throughout the store.

"We thought the tourists coming in to buy some stuff, especially people from other countries, should get the whole story of who the president is because the items in the Trump store don't accurately reflect the person," one of the artists said.

Each of the interactive installation's pieces made direct reference to a President Trump controversy. 

The KKK hood's product description includes the phrase "For fine people," a nod to Trump's Trump Tower press conference in which he told reporters that at Charlottesville, "You had some very fine people on both sides."

The hood also carries a faux presidential endorsement, which reads, "The same brand my father used." Trump's father was arrested during a 1927 fight between Klansmen and NYPD officers according to the Huffington Post. Although newspaper reports from the time do not specify whether or not Fred Trump was a member of the KKK, it is known that he was not a policeman. 

An FBI report also alleges that Trump's father told an employee to "get rid of blacks" at a property the Trump family owned, and that Trump père requested that apartments in one of his buildings not be rented to black people, the Independent reports.

The other items refer to scandals that plagued the president. According to a former British intelligence official, the Russian government has videos of President Trump in a Moscow hotel room with several Russian prostitutes engaging in sexual acts involving urination, hence the rubber sheets.

A remote control promises that is is "preset to Fox News and CNN!," a tongue-in-cheek reference to the president's on-going battle with the media.

And the artists' rendition of Donald Trump's American flag features a product description that is all in Russian. Trump is currently being investigated over his ties to Russia.

The artist interviewed by Gothamist said that many of the shoppers he and his partner observed didn't seem shocked by the new products.

"My partner was in the back putting in some of the items and he said to someone, 'Oh did you see this?' and they didn't even bat an eye," he said.

Even workers at the store didn't notice the new items. It wasn't until Gothamist staffers were sent to purchase the unofficial items that the sales clerks realized that there had been some unauthorized additions to the shelves.

The items were removed from the store just an hour later.
