The president's campaign has sold almost 55,000 packs of plastic straws, making over $823,000 in sales.

President Donald Trump's piggybacking off his recent media antics to sell merchandise has netted his campaign nearly $1 million in donations, according to reports.

The president's campaign has sold almost 55,000 packs of plastic straws, making over $823,000 in sales.

Additionally, campaign officials have sold around $50,000 worth of Sharpie pens, according to campaign communication director Tim Murtaugh, as per The New York Times.

Murtaugh added that over a third of people who bought the straws had never donated to the campaign.

On September 6, Trump began selling the Sharpies to raise money following a CNN hit piece which criticized him for using a pen on a map to alter Hurricane Dorian’s trajectory.

Trump doubled down on a tweet implying the storm would hit Alabama after facing backlash from left-leaning media outlets who attempted to correct him by showing a map of the path of the hurricane that had been modified with a Sharpie.

Brad Parscale, Trump’s campaign manager, announced the marketing ploy in a tweet.

“Buy the official Trump marker, which is different than every other marker on the market, because this one has the special ability to drive @CNN and the rest of the fake news crazy!”

In July, campaign organizers made a similar move by selling pro-Trump plastic straws to trigger liberals pushing to eliminate them to help the environment.

The campaign’s official website is selling branded reusable and recyclable straws for $15 per set.

The straw sold out on at least one e occasion, according to reports.

Supporters of Trump can also buy T-shirts mocking CNN’s Chris Cuomo, who was filmed exploding in an aggressive rage after a Trump supporter called him "Fredo" while asking for a photo.

The T-shirt is designed to parody Cuomo’s claims the name is a slur against Italians.

Neon Nettle has reached out to Murtaugh to ask how the Cuomo T-shirts are selling.
