Donald Trump reacts to Starbucks' red cups this year

Posted: Updated:

The red cups are generating a lot of talk -- and we're not talking about red Solo cups.

Starbucks continues to take heat for its plain red holiday cups this year. The company removed what it calls the symbols of the season, which included reindeer, snowflakes and Christmas ornaments.

Starbucks says the blank canvas lets people tell their own Christmas stories by adding their own designs.

The red cups have made their way onto the campaign trail, as Donald Trump has since spoken out in the wake of the controversy.

"Hey look, I'm speaking against myself. I have one of the most successful Starbucks in Trump Tower. Maybe we should boycott Starbucks. I don't know. Seriously. I don't care."

Trump said if he's elected president, everyone will say "Merry Christmas" again.
