Donald Trump called for a boycott of Starbucks over the coffee giant’s red holiday cups because the cups are void of the words and graphics that symbolize Christmas. Starbucks has been highly criticized online for the last few days because of this.
Starbucks might want to rethink erasing Christmas from their holiday advertising because Trump is not just a self-proclaimed online celebrity, like the guy on the Internet who got the ball rolling with his boycott Starbucks video over the weekend. When Trump talks people listen!
It was at a rally in Illinois Monday night where Trump called for the boycott of Starbucks, reports MSN News on November 10. He was center stage and getting all the cheers except for a few hecklers. Trump handled them like a pro when they yelled “Feel the Bern,” which was a reference to Sanders.
Starbucks rolled out simple red holiday cups to hold their hot coffee this season. Gone were the graphics that were traditionally seen on Starbucks’ holiday cups, which represented Christmas. A man named Joshua Feuerstein started a boycott Starbucks campaign with a rant on a YouTube video that gathered more than 12 million views.
Starbucks is being politically correct by offering up a festive cup that would encompass every religion celebrating a holiday this time of year. If there is one thing that Trump thinks has taken over this nation and something that needs to stop is the bizarre extremes that people will go through all for the sake of being “politically correct.” Taking Christmas out of the December 25 holiday is not something Trump wants to see happen.
According to The Blaze Donald Trump said to the crowd in Springfield, Illinois, ““Did you read about Starbucks? No more Merry Christmas … I wouldn’t buy,” Trump said. ”Maybe we should boycott Starbucks. I don’t know. Seriously. I don’t care.” He went on to say when he is elected president Christmas greetings “will abound!”
Trump is the man of the hour, day, week and month and quite possibly the man who is next in line to run this great nation. So with all eyes on the real estate mogul turned front-runner for president, people are going to listen to him. He has the country energized as he is not afraid to point out the broken systems and attitudes in Washington.
If “Saturday Night Live” had its best night for ratings since 2007 with Trump as a host and his appearance for the first Republican debate is credited for capturing the most viewers of any non-sports event in television history, it’s safe to say he has the attention of a lot of folks out there. Trump’s call for a Starbucks’ boycott will not doubt make the coffee giant’s rivals happy. Will Starbucks’ sales suffer from this? Only time will tell if Trump is powerful enough with one suggestion to separate America from one of their favorite coffee brands!
