Trump Calls For Boycott of Coke, Delta, Other Companies Opposed To Georgia Voting Law

On Saturday, former President Donald Trump urged Republicans and conservatives to “fight back” and boycott big corporations that have attacked Georgia’s recent election law.

Trump said in a statement put out by the Save America PAC, that, “For years the Radical Left Democrats have played dirty by boycotting products when anything from that company is done or stated in any way that offends them. Now they are going big time with the WOKE CANCEL CULTURE and our sacred elections.”

Trump went on to say, “It is finally time for Republicans and Conservatives to fight back— we have more people than they do— by far! Boycott Major League Baseball, Coca-Cola, Delta Airlines, JPMorgan Chase, ViacomCBS, Citigroup, Cisco, UPS and Merck. Don’t go back to their products until they relent. We can play a better game than them.”

President Trump on the GA boycotts:

Opponents of the law have claimed that it is a “voter suppression” bill. Several outlets have put out explainers on what the bill does and doesn’t do.

MLB Latest In Long Line Of ‘Woke’ Corporations?

Major League Baseball is just one of the large corporations and entities that have condemned the Georgia law, as they decided to move the 2021 All-Star Game from Atlanta.

Coca-Cola, Delta Airlines, and other big corporations have also voiced opposition to the new law.

President Joe Biden said he would support players who agreed with the MLB moving the All-Star Game out of Atlanta in protest of the voting law.

Biden also referred to the law as “Jim Crow on steroids.”

Georgia Governor Brian Kemp strongly defended the law during a press conference on Saturday.

“Major League Baseball, Coca-Cola and Delta may be scared of Stacey Abrams, Joe Biden and the left, but I am not and we are not. Cancel culture and woke political activists are coming for every aspect of your life, sports included.”

Kemp went on to say, “MLB caved to fear and lies from liberal activists. They ignored the facts of our new election integrity law and they ignored the consequences of their decision on our community.”

Kemp also went on Tucker Carlson’s show to argue that New York, where the MLB is headquartered, has some greater voting restrictions than Georgia.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution compared Georgia’s law to those of other states.
