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

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.
