Former President Donald Trump on Tuesday called for Republicans to boycott companies who are opposed to voting laws like the one recently signed into law by Georgia Republican Governor Brian Kemp.
In a statement released by Trump’s Save America PAC via email, the 45th President said that the voter law signed by Kemp did not tighten voting restrictions enough.
Statement by Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States of America:
Too bad the desperately needed election reforms in Georgia didn’t go further, as their originally approved Bill did, but the Governor and Lt. Governor would not go for it.
The watered-down version, that was just passed and signed by Governor Kemp, while better than before, doesn’t have Signature Matching and many other safety measures, which were sadly left out.
This Bill should have been passed before the 2020 Presidential Election, not after. It is now reported that chain of custody records for over 400,000 Absentee Ballots are missing or not being shown. I wonder why? Show them now!
The Democrats in Georgia really push the Republicans around, like the so-called Consent Decree, which was illegally signed by the Secretary of State without Legislative Approval—a Democrat DREAM. Boycott all of the woke companies that don’t want Voter I.D. and Free and Fair Elections. Continued Below
Last month, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp signed a sweeping voting bill — S.B. 202 — that limits the use of ballot drop boxes and imposes new photo ID requirements for absentee voting.
Meanwhile, state and county officials in Georgia have failed to produce chain of custody documents for an estimated 404,691 vote by mail absentee ballots deposited in drop boxes and subsequently delivered to county registrars for counting, journalist Sharyl Attkisson reported.
Following the passage of the Georgia bill, several major corporations including Atlanta-based Delta Air Lines and Coca-Cola came out against the voting law. Delta Air Lines CEO Ed Bastian told employees in a memo that “it’s evident that the bill includes provisions that will make it harder for many underrepresented voters, particularly Black voters, to exercise their constitutional right to elect their representatives.” Continued Below
45th President Donald Trump’s official statement:
Most recently, MLB pulled the league’s All-Star Game out of Atlanta to Denver, Colorado in protest of the new law. The league is scheduled to announce on Tuesday that the game, set for July 13, will take place at Coors Field, home of the Colorado Rockies, USA Today reported.
On Friday, the 45 President released a statement after Major League Baseball commissioner Robert Manfred decided to move the 2021 All-Star game out of Atlanta.
“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 wrote in his email. “Boycott baseball and all of the woke companies that are interfering with Free and Fair Elections. Are you listening Coke, Delta, and all!”
On Saturday, he railed against the companies, calling on Republicans and conservatives to band together and “fight back.”
“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,” Trump said his statement.
