Trump calls for boycott of more companies over Georgia voting law
Former President Trump on Saturday added to a list of organizations he's calling on supporters to boycott for opposing Georgia's voting restrictions.
Driving the news: Trump on Friday urged a boycott of "woke companies" that have taken a stand and Major League Baseball for moving its All-Star Game out of Georgia, adding: "Are you listening Coke, Delta." In his new statement, he said: "Boycott Major League Baseball, Coca-Cola, Delta Airlines, JPMorgan Chase, ViacomCBS, Citigroup, Cisco, UPS, and Merck."
What else he's saying: Trump accused "Radical Left Democrats" of playing dirty by boycotting companies that offend them.
- "Now they are going big time with WOKE CANCEL CULTURE and our sacred elections," Trump said.
- "It is finally time for Republicans and Conservatives to fight back — we have more people than they do — by far!" he added, before making a series of complaints, including about the 2020 presidential election, and then wishing: "Happy Easter!"
The other side: Democrats have criticized the new law, with President Biden calling it "Jim Crow on steroids."
- Citigroup declined to comment, and the other companies named in Trump's boycott list did not immediately return Axios' requests for comment.
