Trump Tells Chris Christie 'No More Oreos,' Despite Having Stake in Company That Makes Them
Donald Trump and Chris Christie won't be caught with their hands in the cookie jar, now that the political duo has announced they will be boycotting Oreos.
Trump appeared at a fundraiser for the New Jersey governor in Lawrenceville, New Jersey, and said since Oreo’s manufacturer, Nabisco, is moving its production facility to Mexico, he and Christie will no longer nosh on “milk’s favorite cookie.”
"I’m not eating Oreos anymore. Neither is Chris. Don't feel bad Chris. No more Oreos for either of us," Trump said.
Many took the announcement as a jab at the governor’s weight.
Some even took to Twitter with reactions like:
Can't believe Oreo's war room hasn't used Trump Christie joke as a #branding opp yet. 😐— Patrick Coffee (@PatrickCoffee) May 20, 2016
I wonder if Chris Christie envisioned his political life ending w/ Donald Trump making Oreo jokes at his expense. Probably.— Gatsby Nimble (@apockleIPS) May 20, 2016
Despite Trump’s stance on Oreo cookies, he has bonds in Mondelez, the holding company which owns Nabisco, the manufacturers of Oreo.
When Trump filed his 104-page financial disclosure with the Federal Election Commission Tuesday, it revealed that he had bonds with Mondelez.
He earned between $5,000 to $15,000 in interest on his bonds with Mondelez.
