Breaking: Trump Calls For Massive Boycott Against 'Woke' Companies
During Saturday's Republican CPAC, President Trump called on Conservatives and Republicans to take a page from the leftist playbook and boycott the so-called 'woke' companies condemning Georgia's new election reform. 'We have more people', Trump reportedly said.
"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 WOKE CANCEL CULTURE and our sacred elections," Trump wrote in a statement.
"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," he continued.
'We can play the game better than them," Trump said.
He then repeated that the 2020 election had been ‘rigged’ against him.
"They rigged and stole our 2020 Presidential Election, which we won by a landslide, and then, on top of that, boycott and scare companies into submission. Never submit, never give up! The Radical Left will destroy our country if we let them. We will not become a Socialist Nation. Happy Easter!" the former president wrote.
Some Georgia GOP lawmakers subsequently announced they would remove Coca-Cola products from their statehouse offices.
"Unfortunately, upon the passage of 'Election Integrity Act of 2021,' your company has made the conscious decision to perpetuate a national dialogue which seeks to intentionally mislead the citizens of Georgia and deepen a divide in our great state," a number of state lawmakers wrote in a letter.
It looks like Trump's message was received as GPB and AJC reporter Greg Bluestein noted, "Some Georgia Republican state legislators are removing @CocaCola products from their statehouse offices after the Atlanta-based beverage giant criticized the new elections law."

Major Georgia-based corporations like Delta Airlines and Coca-Cola condemned the push to protect voter laws. The Major League Baseball association moved their All-Star game and draft completely out of the state in protest.
Trump isn't wrong that Republicans should use a move from the Democrat's playbook and start boycotting in the masses. I just have a feeling that this will somehow be reported as 'hostile' or 'violent' by the left-wing media.
