The RNC wrote on its official Twitter account that “there’s only one thing better than a Black Friday deal… and that’s a Trump Black Friday deal.”
It also shared a code offering shoppers a 20 percent discount on goods, and linked to the shop section of Trump’s official website:
Many tweeters accused the RNC of selling its soul with its latest post:
And there was me thinking the @GOP were a “professional”, 164 year old political party, not an official Trump retailer. But what does a Scot know of American Politics ?♀️ Only that this is a very sorry and shameful sight to see.

What’s your return policy? America has a Trump item that is damaged and fits very poorly that we don’t want anymore.

Looks like the soul of the GOP just went on the auction block….

Holy crap the party is now behind selling his branded merch? Is he giving you a cut or just the ‘honor’ to promote it? #IveSeenItAll

I can’t even begin to describe how lame this is. I hope someone, somewhere, in the gop is weeping.

And there went that last floater of dignity the GOP had flushed down the bowl.
