Many Chinese companies are already producing the novelty Trump toilet paper, with the slogan “Dump with Trump.” Buyers can choose different Trump facial expressions featured on it, including smiling, pointing and pouting.
One of these companies is Qingdao Wellpaper Industrial Co, which said sales of its Trump toilet paper have been rising since mid-February, according to media reports.
The company said they had already received more than 50 orders, some for up to 5,000 rolls. Most of the orders were placed by U.S. buyers.
On Chinese online business-to-business platform Alibaba.com, more than 70 Chinese manufacturers can be found selling Trump toilet paper.
Whether intended as a gag gift or actually used for wiping, apparently Americans do enjoy Trump toilet paper. While wholesale prices from Chinese sellers are averaged 50 U.S. cents, resell prices on eBay or Amazon can be as much as 30 U.S. dollars.
One of the more prominent U.S. customers for Trump toilet paper is Sydney Leroux, member of US women’s national soccer team. She posted a picture of a roll of the toilet paper on Instagram in May.
“My husband just ordered a bunch of this to our house. I love him. #amazingtoiletpaper,” wrote Leroux in the caption of the post.
