Republican presidential candidate Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpLiz Cheney: 'Send her back' chant 'inappropriate' but not about race, gender Booker: Trump is 'worse than a racist' Top Democrat insists country hasn't moved on from Mueller MORE suggested boycotting Starbucks after the coffeehouse chain opted for a simpler holiday cup.  

“Did you read about Starbucks?” Trump asked supporters during a rally in Springfield, Ill., on Monday, according to the Washington Post. “No more ‘Merry Christmas’ at Starbucks. No more.” 


Starbucks releases its traditional red holiday cup each November. Past designs have included imagery such as snowflakes, snowmen and Christmas trees. But this year, Starbucks opted for a red cup sans imagery, which has caused a backlash among some Christians, who say it’s a blow against Christmas, according to the Los Angeles Times

“Maybe we should boycott Starbucks,” Trump said. 

“If I become president, we’re all going to be saying ‘Merry Christmas’ again. That I can tell you. That I can tell you! Unbelievable,” Trump added.
