GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump has decided to join the ranks of those declaring 'War on Christmas.' The famed businessman specifically blasted Starbucks' new holiday cups, which have removed traditional Christmas symbols from their exterior in favor of a simpler design.

Speaking at an event in Springfield, Illinois, Trump told an audience:

"Today I read...and I have Starbucks, they are my tenants. Did you read about Starbucks? No more 'Merry Christmas' on Starbucks. No more. I wouldn't buy. Hey look, I am 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. By the way, that's the end of that lease. But who cares? Who cares? Who cares?"

In a curious take on executive privilege, Trump also guaranteed his audience that if he becomes president "we'll all be saying Merry Christmas again."
