Poundland in the UK has been left with a surplus of Trump merchandise which was bought in for his UK visit that has now been postponed following concerns regarding less than huge crowd size......or maybe a large unfavourable crowd.

The merchandise includes ' MAGA ' hats, little bobble head trumps, giant red ties and even faux bricks for the wall. The retail company are now trying to come up with some creative marketing strategies to offload the stock. It is being sold off of the Halloween decor and jokes aisles. The company has also started a hashtag to generate consumer interest. #Poundlanddumpstrump

quote ;

Poundland Trading Director, Barry Williams said: “We are asking for our customers help. The range was created ahead of his UK visit, but given this is not happening now, we reckon the only way to sell the products is to encourage shoppers to come up with unusual ways to use it. The range is also perfect for Halloween. Just wait until you see the Donald Trump masks, they’re probably the scariest things we’ve ever sold.”



Poundland is a cut price retail outlet, an equivalent to Dollar General / Dollar Store type outlets. It seems their shoppers are not too happy that Trump Merch is being stocked..and in true POTUS style have taken to twitter to complain.

From Twitter users / Poundland customers ;

Dear @Poundland why on earth are you stocking Donald Trump trash?

But it's not with the Halloween range at all. Why you'd want to promote a sexist racist is beyond me.

yo @Poundland wanna explain why this #e is in your Lincoln shop?

@Poundland are you joking????????? Please tell me this is for halloween?

Who's up next in your racist/sexist/ableist/transphobic demagogue range, @poundland?



Seems you can buy a MAGA hat for a quid in the UK, official trump merchandise has them for $25....maybe a business opportunity for an aspiring apprentice....ebay?

So... who all wants to get dressed up as DJ Trump for Halloween ?

For those who aren't satisfied with their youtube videos:
Here's your chance for a re-take!

ETA

Disclaimers: I had no idea that the youtube was a slam against White Nationalism. I was only showing that former Trump supporters have a use for those hats.

Haha brilliant!
I'm gonna nip to poundland tomorrow and grab me a mini trump or MAGA hat if they have them in my area.
Cool unusual hat for working outside, maybe an extra bonus of offending a sensitive liberal type or two lol

I don't know about Halloween, but I reckon there are plenty of people who would get a kick out of getting hold of a Trump doll or dressing up a stuffed toy as Trump, and putting them on the bonfire for Guy Fawkes night. Burning fascist, cold beer, and hot food?

Sounds like a good night out.

Well, I'm broke and don't get out much but whatever's in my wallet next time I'm near that shop is going on a goody bag.

I'm sure I could customise a hat to M GB G A.

I got some MAGA hats from china for $2 each. MChinaGA one hat at a time. Trumps ironically are probably made in china as well? Would love a bobble head Trump though.

Have a carnival, throw tennis balls-- or better yet, have a shooting gallery where the lil Trump bobble heads parade in front a bunch of idiots with guns.

If you knock trump down you 'win' . Proceeds go to the campaign to reelect Blair.

I have a nice pair of ceramic boble head muslims in the study, my Mohamed in black robes and Aisha in a burqa. And a plastc bobble Jesus on the dashboard of the Jeep. One time the police pulled me over driving and before giving me a fine looked at the dashboard and commented "Jesus aint going to save you know".

Eh what?! Not many people want that war criminal re-elected in the UK...I'd rather have Trump as PM than that weasel.
