Products promoting “Trump 2020” are far outselling other potential White House hopefuls at one online retailer.
Trump 2020 items, which include everything from hats to “Keep America Great” shirts to bumper stickers, are leading the pack on CafePress.com, with the highest sales to date, nearly 41 percent, among goodies involving the next presidential election.
But not all the Trump-related 2020 merchandise — an eye-popping nearly 49,000 items in total — necessarily supports the current commander in chief. Some items tagged with Trump’s name and the next presidential election year are less than complimentary, including shirts that say Jan. 20, 2021, will be the “end of an error” and a car magnet stating, “Donald Trump ’20: Just to piss you off!”
And general “Election 2020” items garnered 40.7 percent of sales among the election-related products.
