President Donald Trump promoted MyPillow during a rally in Fargo, North Dakota, on June 28.
Trump noted that MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell is a longtime supporter, reports Yahoo News:
I want you to be my ad buyer because I guarantee you he makes great deals. He does make a great product, great pillows. I actually use them, believe it or not.
USA TODAY notes that Lindell was sued over unsubstantiated claims that MyPillow could cure snoring, migraines, fibromyalgia, and other health problems.
Lindell insisted he never made these claims, but rather customers posted them on his MyPillow website. Lindell claimed it just made financial sense to settle the accusations for $1 million in January 2017.
The Better Business Bureau (BBB) lowered the rating of the Minnesota-based MyPillow to an F based on a pattern of consumer complaints.
