Republican nominee Donald Trump spoke at a pre-debate rally in Springfield, Illinois on Monday evening, and the businessman declared himself disappointed and quite angry at Starbucks’ decision to come on the market with a minimalist design of its annual holiday cups, says Fox News.
Disappointed by Starbucks’ latest cups
Donald Trump even suggested boycotting Starbucks. “Maybe we should boycott Starbucks. I don’t know. Seriously, I don’t care.”, said the presidential candidate, according to the same source. If in previous years Starbucks’ cups had featured snowflakes, winter scenes and sometimes Christmas ornaments, this year big changes are expected.
A minimalist all-red design with no images aside from the company’s green and white logo will probably appear on the cups. The reason? Starbucks wants to alienate with other companies that have decided to move away from exclusively Christian-themed holiday decorations and replace “Merry Christmas” with “Happy Holidays”.
Of course, Donald Trump, who wants to win the support of evangelical and other conservative Christians in a crowded field, says Fox News, dismissed this strategy. “If I become president, we’re all going to be saying, ‘Merry Christmas’ again. That I can tell you.”, declared Trump.
His opponents weren’t forgotten, not even this time
This reaction from Donald Trump comes with only one day remaining until Republican’s party presidential debate, that will take place in Milwaukee, Tuesday evening. Trump didn’t spoke directly about the debate, but he couldn’t resist throwing some punch lines to his opponents, including retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson.
“With what’s going on with this election? I’ve never seen anything like it, You stab somebody and the newspapers say, ‘You didn’t do it.’ And you said, ‘Yes I did, I did it!’ This is the only election in history where you’re better off if you stabbed somebody. What are we coming to?”, said Trump.
