Donald Trump has once again gone against his own proposed boycott of Coca-Cola, after another image appeared of him online with a bottle of the popular soft drink.

The ex-president’s calls for a boycott followed a string of organisations – including Major League Baseball - voicing their concerns around a new voting law in Georgia, and comes despite the Republican previously criticising so-called “cancel culture”.

“Boycott baseball and all of the woke companies that are interfering with Free and Fair Elections. Are you listening Coke, Delta and all,” Trump said in a statement on April 2.

Just two days later, the former leader was criticising “woke cancel culture” and calling for Republicans and conservatives to “fight back”.

“Boycott Major League Baseball, Coca-Cola, Delta Airlines, JPMorgan Chase, ViacomCBS, Citigroup, Cisco, UPS and Merck,” he said.

However, one day after that, on April 5, former Trump advisor Stephen Miller tweeted a photo of himself standing beside his old boss.

In the snap, only partly concealed by a landline phone on his desk, is a bottle of the boycotted drink:

Now, in a photo shared to Instagram, reportedly two days after his last Coke catastrophe, Trump has appeared once again fraternising with the enemy.

“Donald Trump enjoying lunch at Trump Golf Jupiter yesterday … He picked up everyone’s tab,” the post from @FirstFamilyTrumps_ reads, showing the MAGA commander in chief tucking into some fries.

In amongst the praise, some Trump supporters quickly spotted the blunder.

“What!!! I see a COKE bottle. I thought we were banning Coke, I am,” wrote one.

“Think the boss should be rethinking his COKE use,” commented another.

When it comes to the Coke boycott, it looks like Trump has well and truly bottled it.
