Trump Campaign’s Plastic Straws Top $456K in Sales

There may be a war on plastic straws from environmentalists, but the Trump reelection campaign is going in the other direction by selling a 10-pack of straws — lots of them, each with Trump’s name lasered on each straw.

Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale tweeted that the president’s reelection campaign sold more than 140,000 straws, which sell for $15 a pack.

“That is over $200,000 raised. More than half of all Straw purchasers were BRAND NEW small-dollar donors. Amazing!” said Parscale. The campaign lists the pack of straws with the following description:

“Liberal paper straws don’t work. STAND WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP and buy your pack of recyclable straws today.”

Sales continued to soar since the initial tweet and now top $456,000.
