In a straw poll of a different sort, President Trump's supporters have bought up all the plastic straws his campaign was selling in a rejection of "liberal paper" alternatives. The sale of 140,000 straws—10 of them for $15, with "Trump" stamped on them—totaled more than $200,000, his campaign manager tweeted Monday. Saying that paper straws don't work, the online offering calls for shoppers to stand with the president and "buy your pack of recyclable straws today." The Made-in-America straws are recyclable, the Washington Examiner reports.
Brad Parscale's tweet Monday said that more than half of buyers were small donors new to Trump's campaign. Despite the sold-out tweet, the Trump straws might become available again in the online store; a tweet last week also said they were sold out, but more evidently hit the virtual shelves.
