Donald Trump's campaign is approaching half a million dollars in sales of plastic straws after the president criticized the growing war against single-use plastic items.
So far, the online merchandise store of the re-election campaign has raised $ 456,000 for the item, which is delivered in 10 packages for $ 15. More than $ 250,000 of those dates from the past seven days.
Politics unveiled the stunning statistic Monday morning, along with $ 500,000 in business on T-shirts with the flag of Betsy Ross and a quarter of a million dollars in sales of t-shirts sold by the California Democratic Rep. Mocking Adam Schiff.
The shirt sale was the result of the former NFL star Colin Kaepernick who had dressed up Nike for incorporating the legendary Ross flag emblem on a pair of shoes.
The popularity of the straws increased after Trump & # 39; s campaign manager tweet about a faulty & # 39; liberal & # 39; paper straw and DailyMail.com asked the president about the step by step to ban the more famous plastic version.
