The Donald Trump shirt that reads “Boonus” on its front features a message in bold letters that reads, “Bona fide” — the abbreviation for “buyers beware.”
But the shirt has gotten some attention in recent weeks because of its controversial nature, as well as the fact that the phrase “buyer beware” has become synonymous with the presidential campaign.
The word “buy” has been synonymous with Trump in the past, as evidenced by a recent tweet that read, “The people that buy Trump shirts at his hotels are the people that are paying for his politics.”
The shirt, which has a $40 price tag, has sparked backlash from fans, politicians, celebrities, and even the candidate himself.
But some fans have taken offense to the shirt’s bold font and have even started an online petition asking the president-elect to change it.
While many people have said the shirt is offensive and has caused the shirt to be called “buyout,” some have said it should not be considered offensive.
A statement posted on Trump’s official Twitter account reads, “@DrewMasters_ @BondManNYC @realDonaldTrump this shirt is the antithesis of @realDonaldTrump & the Trump brand.”
But Trump himself defended the shirt on Twitter.
The shirt is actually an awesome idea.
We have been using the phrase ‘buyer-beware’ for years and it was the most popular thing that people did on our shirts when they bought a Trump shirt.
The shirts have been used by people all over the world and many people are not offended by the word.
I mean, what are you going to do when you’re buying a Trump tee shirt?
You can say whatever you want, but at the end of the day, the person that’s buying the shirt at the store is the one that’s paying for it.
I know people that were buying hats and shirts and it had nothing to do with me.
The fact that people are saying that is ridiculous.
It’s an insult to all of us.
It should not have been written on our shirt.
I don’t think you should write it on our tee shirts.
We use it all the time.
I will tell you this: I do not like the word ‘buy,’ and I never have.
If I were in that position, I’d be in jail.
I would buy it off the street if I had to.
I am a businessman and I can make a living off it.
People who hate me for what I said in the heat of the moment are not going to buy it.
The people who want to buy the shirt are the ones that are buying it.
And I would not want to be associated with that.
The whole thing is just a waste of my time.
Trump is not the only president-in-waiting who has faced backlash from the media and the public.
Former President Barack Obama, who was a Democrat in 2008, has faced criticism for a shirt that included the words “black lives matter” and “Obama, not me.”
The words were not changed.
