‘Making Straws Great Again’

Swapping paper for plastic turned out to be the last straw for Donald Trump, who said Friday there are “bigger problems” than plastic drinking straws -- the day after his reelection campaign manager promoted branded ones on Twitter. The president made his position clear to reporters at the White House when, between questions about Iran and China, one asked him about growing efforts to ban plastic straws. “I do think we have bigger problems than plastic straws,” Trump replied. The clamor to ban single-use plastics has been building momentum, with Washington and Seattle having already moved to paper drinking straws. But Thursday night, the president’s reelection campaign manager took to Twitter to plug Trump-branded plastic straws, on sale for $15 for a pack of 10. “Liberal paper straws don’t work,” read the product description on the campaign store website. Trump’s campaign manager tweeted the link along with the slogan “Making Straws Great Again.”
