SPRINGFIELD, Ill.  — Donald Trump is suggesting boycotting Starbucks over the minimalist design of its annual holiday cups.

Trump tells thousands of people at a rally in Springfield, Illinois on Monday that: “Maybe we should boycott Starbucks. I don’t know.”

Some religious conservatives have expressed anger over the all-red design of the coffee company’s holiday cups, seeing them as part of a larger movement away from Christmas.

Previous years’ cups have featured snowflakes, winter scenes and Christmas tree ornaments.

Trump has also expressed frustrations over companies using the term “Happy Holidays” in place of “Merry Christmas.”

He says that if he becomes president, everyone will be saying “Merry Christmas.”
