Donald Trump really, really likes Christmas.

He is sponsoring a Christmas Market in Doonbeg, the tiny west Clare town where he owns the local golf club (check it out on Facebook: the Trump International Doonbeg Christmas Market).

What he doesn’t like is when people mess around with Christmas. Especially multimillion-dollar conglomerates such as Starbucks.
