Trump urges Americans to boycott MLB, major corporations over Ga. election-law pushback
Former President Donald Trump urged Americans on Saturday night to boycott major U.S. industries and companies, including Delta Airlines and Major League Baseball, over their resistance to Georgia’s conservative overhaul of its election system.
“It is finally time for Republicans and conservatives to fight back—we have more people than they do—by far!” Mr. Trump said in a statement. “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 the game better than them.”
It was the former president’s second statement in 24 hours after Major League Baseball’s announcement that it was moving the All-Star game from Atlanta in response to Georiga’s new law. MLB Commissioner Robert Manfred said the league “opposes restrictions to the ballot box.”
Mr. Trump, who lost the November election narrowly to Democrat Joseph R. Biden, said MLB and other major corporations cowing to “woke cancel culture” promoted by liberals
