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.

Former President Trump late Friday night called for a boycott of Major League Baseball after the league's commissioner announced plans to move its All-Star Game out of Georgia due to the state's new law curbing voting access.

What he's saying: "Baseball is already losing tremendous numbers of fans, and now they leave Atlanta with their All-Star Game because they are afraid of the Radical Left Democrats who do not want voter I.D., which is desperately needed, to have anything to do with our elections," Trump said in a statement.

Obama applauds MLB for "taking a stand" against Georgia's voting restrictions

Former President Obama on Saturday praised Major League Baseball for moving its All-Star Game out of Atlanta due to Georgia's new law curbing voting access.

What he's saying: "Congratulations to @MLB for taking a stand on behalf of voting rights for all citizens," Obama tweeted. "There’s no better way for America’s pastime to honor the great Hank Aaron, who always led by example."

Flood of CEOs, corporations speak out against Georgia's voting restrictions

Over 100 companies including Twitter, Zillow and Uber issued a joint statement through Civic Alliance Friday, joining a slew of major corporate players who have expressed concern about Georgia's law curbing voting access.

Why it matters: States often take cues from how hard businesses push back. But many of these corporations, several of which are based in Georgia, could have spoken up earlier when the law was being considered or before the governor signed.
