This Man Is Selling Donald Trump Toilet Paper From A Shopping Trolley

I don't know how you feel about US President Donald Trump, but if you find yourself wishing you could tell him to kiss your arse after listening to yet another one of his proposals then today is your lucky day.

Now you can buy toilet paper with Trump's face on it - puckered up lips and all - thanks to this savvy business man from New Zealand.

Tim Baker, 29, came up with the novelty idea at Christmas. He's since sold them on the streets of Cheltenham, Bath, Somerset and travelled down to London in July to sell the rolls during the mass protests.

He's even taken them down to this year's Edinburgh Fringe Festival, where he's managed to flog an average of 250 rolls a day.

Tim, who runs a marketing business, says his toilet roll venture is proving to be so lucrative that he expects to be on the property ladder by the end of the year.

"There are two designs, one of him puckering up his lips and one where he is making a speech to Republicans, dressed in a suit and red tie," said Tim.

"I've sold around 7,000 or 8,000 toilet rolls since Christmas. I've got a peddler's permit so I'm constantly pushing a shopping trolley around.

"I haven't seen anyone else selling them - you can get them online for a fiver but mine are cheaper."

Tim sells his rolls for £3 each or two for a fiver. He says his customers are of all different ages and come from all over the world. He even reckons that his toilet roll business is more profitable than his marketing day job.

"Teenagers are buying them, Americans are buying them, Japanese tourists, French people and Germans, a few Australians," said Tim.

"It is very international. A lot of British people buy them as well. He is universally unpopular, which is why I'm selling Donald Trump toilet paper.

"I don't think anyone else will be so unpopular in the history of mankind."

And while may people seem to think the idea is a hilarious stroke of genius, Tim has also received a backlash of criticism from Trump fans.

Tim said: "An American guy said, 'This is shitty and you're a shitty person for doing it. This is a shitty idea'. I said, 'Are you being ironic?' He said 'no'.

"I said, 'That's tragic. You just made a brilliant pun and you didn't even get it'."

Well, we don't know about you but we think it's a banger idea. We can't see Tim's toilet roll business going down the pan anytime soon.
