Donald Trump’s latest weapon in the culture wars: a red plastic straw

People feel strongly about straws, and US president Donald Trump is here to capitalize on that. “Liberal paper straws don’t work,” tweeted Trump’s campaign on Thursday (July 18), with a link to purchase a pack of 10 red plastic straws emblazoned with Trump’s name for $15. If you think all that’s outrageous about a $1.50 plastic straw is the price, think again.
