Hanukka Cups Facebook

The Jewish Federation of San Diego County solved Presidential candidate Donald Trump’s concerns about Starbucks’ missing Christmas cups by posting Hanukkah-themed cups.

The Facebook post on Tuesday — simply titled “problem solved” — has gone viral, with over 66,000 likes and 56,000 shares.

Trump, who is courting the evangelical Christian right, suggested Monday that Americans boycott Starbucks after the coffee giant announced it would abandon its Christmas-themed cups.

“I have one of the most successful Starbucks, in Trump Tower. Maybe we should boycott Starbucks?” Trump told a crowd in Springfield, IL, on Monday. “If I become president, we’re all going to be saying Merry Christmas again, that I can tell you. That I can tell you.”

The Jewish organization later commented on its own post, saying, “You know what problem isn’t solved? Elderly people going hungry this Hanukkah. Instead of a venti latte – consider a $6 donation to feed someone in need.”
