Julián Castro, former Housing Secretary under President Barack Obama, is making good on his promise to say, “Adios, Trump!”
During the first Democratic primary debate last year, the former mayor of San Antonio, who was in the presidential race early on, ended his introduction to voters with, “On January 20, 2021, we’ll say adios to Donald Trump.”
Now, with Trump’s loss to former vice president–now president-elect Joe Biden–Castro wants to make sure all Biden supporters are ready for his inauguration and are saying “Adios” to Trump in style by wearing a t-shirt with his farewell message.
This past weekend, Castro relaunched a fundraising website selling shirts with the text, “Adios Trump” printed on them. Designed by artists Cruz Ortiz and Adam Fujita, the shirts are being sold for $34. All proceeds will benefit the United We Dream DACA Renewal Fund, which will support renewal efforts of DACA recipients.
Twitter users were excited to purchase the shirt, even those who realized because of the pandemic they weren’t going to be able to show it off as much as they’d like.
The feeling you get when you got a Adiós
Trump shirt and you want to show it off for Thanksgiving and Christmas in front of half of your family that voted for Trump , but you realized that you’ll be staying home for this year pic.twitter.com/R5RD6wKVlM

Others are buying the shirt not only to celebrate Trump getting voted out by Americans, but also because it makes them feel confident.
fun fact about @JulianCastro’s Adios Trump shirts is every time I wear one i forget I’m wearing it and when I get endless high fives and compliments I’m like “oh it must be because I’m pretty”
buy these shirts for DACA kids, democracy, and a false sense of self confidence🇺🇸 https://t.co/HBpx4B2ltR

One t-shirt buyer couldn’t wait to get her hands on a shirt. Take our money, Julián Castro!
Julián Castro is doing “Adios Trump” shirts and the proceeds go to DACA recipients. Let me get my pocketbook!
