President Trump used his Instagram account to show off a host of Goya Foods products on his Oval Office desk. In the photo, a smiling Trump sits behind the items.

Goya Foods has been the focus of a social media boycott effort after its CEO, Robert Unanue, praised Trump at a White House event last week. The boycott was spearheaded by Democratic politicians like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and former presidential candidate Julian Castro. Several celebrities also joined in on the criticism. Despite the threats, Unanue refused to back down from his remarks.

On Wednesday, the president tweeted that the boycott had "backfired," saying that people were buying Goya products "like crazy."

🔦 Trump was not the only member of the First Family to pose with Goya Foods products. A day before his Instagram post, daughter Ivanka Trump shared her own endorsement on Twitter.
