The Trump store started selling plastic straws to troll liberals who have fought to ban plastic straws across the country. The move proved to be successful.
According to The Hill:
The Trump’s reelection campaign store has sold more than 140,000 plastic straws in just a few days, President Trump’s 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale tweeted Monday.
Parscale first promoted the plastic straws on Thursday in response to what the campaign website calls an alternative to “liberal plastic straws.”
“Liberal paper straws don’t work. STAND WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP and buy your pack of recyclable straws today,” reads the straws’ product description on the president’s campaign website.
Parscaled said sales of the red-Trump-branded straws have eclipsed $200,000.
We have sold more than 140,000 straws. That is over $200,000 raised.
More than half of all Straw purchasers were BRAND NEW small dollar donors.

The straws sold by the Trump campaign are made in America and for $15 you get a pack of 10.
