Poundland is currently trying to flog masses of unwanted Donald Trump memorabilia which was left over from when the President cancelled his trip to the UK.

Trump was supposed to be visiting the UK this October but decided against it amid fears of mass protests, but unfortunately for the budget chain, they’d already invested in a buttload of Trump merch. They’ve been left with thousands of Trump masks, flags, ties and other ‘Make America Great Again’ products.
Instead of accepting their losses and moving on, Poundland have used their thinking hats and come up with an ingenious way to get rid of the products – they’re now marketing the goods for Halloween.

To be fair, they’ll probably sell better than they would’ve if Trump had come to visit. After all, I can’t think of anyone more terrifying for the fate of this planet now than him, so it makes perfect sense to dress up as the guy for this year’s Halloween.
Poundland trading director Barry Williams clearly agrees, as he said:
We are asking for our customers help. The range was created ahead of his UK visit, but given this is not happening now we reckon the only way to sell the products is to encourage shoppers to come up with unusual ways to use it.
The range is also perfect for Halloween. Just wait until you see the Donald Trump masks, they’re probably the scariest things we’ve ever sold.
I couldn’t agree more Barry.
