Parscale first promoted the plastic straws on Thursday in response to what the campaign website calls an alternative to “liberal plastic straws.”

“Liberal paper straws don’t work. STAND WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP and buy your pack of recyclable straws today,” reads the straws’ product description on the president’s campaign website.

Parscaled said sales of the red Trump-branded straws have eclipsed $200,000.

“More than half of all Straw purchasers were BRAND NEW small dollar donors,” he tweeted Monday. “Amazing!”

The reusable straws are made in America and come in a pack of 10 for $15.

The sale of straws comes after multiple cities in recent months have banned or restricted the use of plastic straws, primarily in an effort to crack down on plastic pollution.
