President Donald Trump has been the most successful fundraiser of all the 2020 presidential candidates—$105 million in the second quarter of this year alone.
While many of these dollars have been raised directly, the Trump campaign has also marketed its fair share of colorful items as a means to encourage donations, such as an “I Spy” T-shirt, based on comments made by Attorney General William Barr before the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee.
So perhaps the latest item for sale should not come as much of a surprise: Team Trump announced Thursday that it is selling a 10-pack of recyclable straws for $15.
“Liberal paper straws don’t work,” the tweet reads. “STAND WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP and buy your pack of recyclable straws today!”
The item description describes the straws as BPA free, reusable and recyclable, 9 inches long, laser engraved, and made in the U.S. It also notes that the item for sale is a “pack of 10 identical straws as shown.”
Users on Twitter were also quick to point out that Trump's campaign is marketing BPA free, reusable, recyclable straws, when the president has made past comments calling climate change a hoax and denying that man-made climate change is real.
While it's unclear why these Trump-branded straws would work better than “liberal paper straws,” for those who want to go the whole way, there is also a $20 four-pack of Trump-Pence MAGA red cups available.
