Plastic straws are now an issue in the 2020 campaign, and on this narrow policy question, President Donald Trump is the pro-freedom candidate. "STAND WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP and buy your pack of recyclable straws today", says the straws' description on the Trump campaign website.

The pack of 10 straws sells for $15, coming out to a cost of $1.50 a straw.

Not everyone on Twitter was thrilled with the idea of putting a nine-inch Trump tube in their mouths.

'What about the plates and the wrappers and everything else that are much bigger?' Trump responded when asked about the issue by DailyMail.com on Friday.

"I do think we have bigger problems than plastic staws", Trump told reporters on the South Lawn of the White House before departing for New Jersey.

At least they're made in the USA, unlike a number of items for sale at the Trump Organization store.

Trump's campaign is also correct in pointing out that "liberal paper straws" are a poor substitute given their propensity to dissolve in drinks or crumple when being poked through lids.

RBS chief Ross McEwan tapped to run National Australia Bank
His appointment comes at a hard time for NAB, which was hammered by the Royal Commission for conduct and culture failings. The bank will provide Australian "tech-innovators" with loans, as well as facilitate access to capital markets.

"As communities across the country rally around various plastic bans, understanding that only 9 percent of all plastic has actually been recycled, Donald Trump is doubling down on preserving a lifeline for his friends in the chemical and fossil fuel industries".

"Liberal paper straws don't work", the introductory passage starts apparently implying some environmental connotations linked to the current Democratic climate change agenda.

Earlier this month, San Francisco introduced a law banning the distribution of single-use plastic straws in food and beverage vendors, except when one is requested for people with disabilities or medical needs. "It's interesting about plastic straws", he said, holding his hands straw-length apart. These deficiencies are why plastic straws replaced paper ones to begin with.

Starbucks has vowed to eliminate plastic straws in all its stores by 2020 in favor of "alternative-material straw options" and a "recyclable strawless lid".

The move prompted more than 50,000 people to sign an online petition urging the fast-food chain to bring back plastic straws so they could "drink my milkshake proper".

The vast majority of plastic ends up in land-fills. How many things in our life to we use once in our life and then throw away?
