On Monday, Donald Trump said perhaps Americans should consider boycotting Starbucks for taking “Merry Christmas” off of their coffee cups and vowed that if he wins the presidential election, “we’re all going to be saying ‘Merry Christmas’ again.”
Speaking at a Springfield, Illinois rally, Trump said that he is “speaking against myself” because “I have one of the most successful Starbucks in Trump Tower.”
He said he read about Starbucks’s plain red cups earlier in the day.
“Starbucks is taking Merry Christmas off. No more Merry Christmas on Starbucks. No More. I wouldn’t buy,” Trump said. “Maybe we should boycott Starbucks. I don’t know. Seriously, I don’t care. That’s the end of that lease, but who cares.”
He then vowed that Americans will be saying “Merry Christmas” again if Trump becomes President.
“I will tell you — lots of big things, lots of little things, you can call this anything you want, but if I become President, we’re all going to be saying ‘Merry Christmas’ again,” Trump said. “That I can tell you.”
