Trump Floats Starbucks Boycott, Pledges Return Of ‘Merry Christmas’

Donald Trump on Monday night criticized Starbucks for creating a blank red cup for the holiday season, rather than including winter or Christmas-themed designs.

Starbucks’ decision has angered Christians who believe the coffee chain has declared a “war on Christmas.”

“I have one of the most successful Starbucks, in Trump Tower. Maybe we should boycott Starbucks? I don’t know. Seriously, I don’t care. By the way, that’s the end of that lease, but who cares?” Trump said during a campaign event in Illinois on Monday. “If I become president, we’re all going to be saying Merry Christmas again, that I can tell you.”
