NOT EXACTLY NEWS – A letter posted by a Twitter account called “Rogue WH Snr Advisory” claimed on February 4th that former President Donald J. Trump surrendered his Costco wholesale club membership claiming the President said the following, “You know, frankly, I’ve never really used the membership anyway. Who needs an eight pound tub of coconut clusters? And the piles of clothing in the center of the store, My God. Nobody wants Kirkland jeans.”
The letter claimed the President canceled his Costco membership. The letter and source are below:
The Office of Donald J. Trump
February 4th, 2021
I am writing to inform you that effective immediately I am terminating my membership with Costco. For the past fourteen years I have been a major supporter of your stores, but that ends today.
I have heard from many, many people about your company’s plan to boycott products that Americans love simply because they are great admirers of mine like Mike Lindell, a great patriot. Let me tell you: this is un-American, and probably illegal. Who are you to say what a business can or can’t do?
You know, frankly, I’ve never really used the membership anyway. Who needs an eight pound tub of coconut clusters? And the piles of clothing in the center of the store, My God. Nobody wants Kirkland jeans.
I have been a big supporter of business, nobody loves business more than me, I did the biggest tax cut we’ve ever seen, a tax cut that helped you and helped your board, and this is what I get in return? A boycott? I’ve never seen anything like this before.
To be honest, the membership wasn’t even for me, I bought it, a lot of people bought it, I let people use the card, many of them got the hot dogs, the chickens, they returned the card, I never even used it. If I had only known what was going on behind the scenes I would have canceled it earlier.
You have done a huge amount of damage to this country, worse than Wal-Mart and probably Trader Joes. It’s not good, and people are seeing it.
Consider this my final interaction with your company.
President Donald J. Trump

Is it fake news?
You can rest assured that you can post something on Twitter and people will believe it no matter how absurd it is. Some people did not get the satire and with a condition sometimes referred to as “Trump Derangement Syndrome”, people are looking for anything that can land #45 in jail.
Dude, I think we might have something else we can convict him for! Good catch. We need another congressional investigation.

"Who are you to say what a business can and can't do."
As he criticizes COSTCO, a business, for deciding that they don't want to carry a certain pillow, by telling COSTCO he has decided he won't visit their store…

Verdict: 100% Not Exactly News
The bigger story here is how many times Twitter can bait and troll those suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome, now being referred to as “Post Traumatic Trump Syndrome”. The entire letter was a joke and it’s nearly unbelievable that anyone in the world would think it’s real. So much for Twitter patrolling and controlling “fake news” on their platform.
