WASHINGTON, D.C. --- Donald Trump has announced a new 28% tax on all sales of carob.
"There is no way we can make America great again if we have that terrible, FAKE chocolate killing our taste buds," said Trump.
The president added that he hoped the 28% tax would discourage Ben Carson from buying more carob products at his local ABC store.
"Ben keeps buying these nasty carob chip cookies and bringing them to our cabinet meetings. Not good!" tweeted Trump this morning, adding that from now on, only real American chocolate would be consumed at the White House.
