Former President Donald Trump called on Saturday night to boycott companies that have spoken out against Georgia’s new voting laws. These include Major League Baseball, Delta Airlines, ViacomCBS, Coca-Cola, UPS, and others.
Trump said that “radical left Democrats” have threatened to boycott products for several years, and that now the left is “doing a great deal with WOKE CANCEL CULTURE.”
He said it is time for Republicans to reciprocate the sentiment.
Trump said this through a statement from former senior legal counsel Jenna Ellis:
“The time has finally come for Republicans and Conservatives to fight back, we have more people than them by far! Boycott Major League Baseball (MLB), Coca-Cola, Delta Airlines, JPMorgan Chase, ViacomCBS, Citigroup , Cisco, UPS, and Merck, “the statement read.
“Don’t go back to their products until they give in. We can play better than them.”
Trump went on to say, again, that the 2020 presidential election was “rigged.”
“They rigged and stole our 2020 presidential election, which we overwhelmingly won, and then on top of that, they boycotted and scared companies into submitting,” Trump continued. “Never give up, never give up! The Radical Left will destroy our Country if we allow it.
“We will not become a socialist nation. Happy Easter!”
Georgia passed new voting laws last week that include voter identification for absentee ballots, fewer mailboxes, and makes it a crime to bring food and water to voters waiting in line to cast their ballots.
MLB announced Friday afternoon that it would pull this year’s Summer Classic out of Peach State to a site “to be determined.”
“Over the past week, we have engaged in thoughtful conversations with clubs, former and current players, the Players Association and The Players Alliance, among others, to hear their views. I have decided that the best way to demonstrate our values is” Relocating this year’s All-Star Game and MLB Draft is one sport, “MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred said in a statement.
That drew instant criticism from both Trump and Governor Kemp, who said MLB and major corporations in Georgia have “woken up” to “free and fair elections.”
“Baseball is already losing a lot of fans, and now they are leaving Atlanta with their All-Star Game because they fear radical left-wing Democrats who don’t want a desperately needed voter ID to have anything to do with it. our choices. “Trump wrote on Friday night.
“Boycott baseball and all the companies that have woken up and are interfering with free and fair elections. Are you listening to Coca-Cola, Delta and all that?”
Meanwhile, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp said Friday that those who speak out against his state’s new voting laws are simply “giving in to the culture of cancellation.” The governor of Georgia told listeners across the country that “they will come after you.”
“I think it’s a message to all of us, all over this country who are home tonight, they will come after you. You know, they will come after your ball game. They will boycott your business. If they don’t agree with their way of life, they will chase it too, “Kemp added.
