US ELECTIONS

Four Seasons Total Landscaping looks to cash in on US election cameo

The host of what has become an infamous Trump campaign press conference has launched a merchandising line

A navy blue hoodie with the United States flag and "Four Seasons Total Landscaping" emblazoned across the chest – it could just be the must-have look this winter.

Whether that is for staunch Joe Biden fans revelling in the Democrat's US election victory, or for Donald Trump supporters who wish to mark what has quickly become an infamous press conference held at the little known venue in Philadelphia is open to debate.

The former seems more likely given the global reaction to the bizarre event on Saturday when Mr Trump’s team, led by his attorney Rudy Giuliani, stood in a car park to address the puzzled media who were expecting something more akin to the Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia in the city centre.

The landscaping company have moved quickly to make the most of the spotlight shone upon it.

As well as the $50 hoodie, customers can also purchase a white or blue T-shirt of similar design costing $25.

"We were honoured to be asked to host a press conference at our facility," it posted on its Facebook page.

"We thank all of those that have shown support for our business and while we understand the negative comments, it saddens us that we have received such harsh judgment.

"Our team at Four Seasons would have proudly hosted any presidential candidate’s campaign at our business. We strongly believe in America and in democracy. We hope that our fellow Americans can join together and support all local small businesses during this time."

It then added that it is working on adding more options to its merchandise.

"36 hours ago, we could not have imagined we’d be the centre of attention. We appreciate your patience as we work to get more merchandise options," it said.

The online shop is also offering stickers costing $5, one of which says "Make America Rake Again . Lawn and Order'.
