President Donald Trump is devising new creative ways to monetize fervor against social justice insanity. As liberals target plastic straws for extinction, the Trump campaign has started to sell reusable plastic straws with “Trump” written on the side of them.
“Liberal paper straws don’t work,” the product description reads on the official Trump store. “STAND WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP and buy your pack of recyclable straws today.”
The decision has been incredibly lucrative for the Trump campaign, as the straw sales sold out almost immediately raising $200,000 for Trump’s re-election efforts.
Our amazing recyclable @realDonaldTrump straws are once again available. We sold out our first several thousand orders. Many new donors for 2020. Thank you!!

Trump has made a public address about the scourge of paper straws, which are being pushed by liberals for the purposes of environmentalism.
“I do think we have bigger problems than plastic straws,” Trump asserted. “So you have a little straw, but what about the plates, the wrappers and everything else that are much bigger, and they’re made of the same material?”
California has instituted restrictions against plastic straws, and customers at restaurants in the state cannot receive a plastic straw unless they specifically ask for one. Washington D.C. fines restaurants between $100 and $800 if they are caught giving plastic straws to their customers.
Liberals are enraged that Trump is counter-signaling their latest environmental bugaboo.
“Donald Trump has based his entire presidency on lies and divisiveness, so it is no surprise that he is selling plastic straws because his presidency is a cheap throwaway with disastrous long term consequences,” said Greenpeace Oceans Campaign Director John Hocevar.
“As usual, Trump has either missed the point or is outwardly lying to his base,” Hocevar added.
“Similar to Trump’s speech on the environment a couple weeks earlier, where he falsely claimed credit for the “cleanest air” and most “crystal clear” water in the world (while ignoring climate change), there’s a prideful ignorance about how humans are affecting our world,” wrote Miyoko Sakashita, who works as director of the Center for Biological Diversity’s oceans program, in an op/ed.
“Trump and his people can keep sucking plastic straws and pretend that’s some kind of rebellion instead of just willful wastefulness,” Sakashita added.
With anger culminating against the liberal-driven paper straw epidemic, Trump has yet again scored points with an American public that is becoming increasingly sick and tired of left-wing control freaks.
