    Trump does have our best interests at heart.

    The gay community boycotting Florida orange juice in the 80's certainly worked to get Anita Bryant, and her bigoted opinions, out of the public spotlight. I watched a documentary about the Rev. Troy Perry, whose activism was instrumental in the boycott.

    That was rather a new use of the tactic, however. Today, any comment made by a news anchor or something as personal as a business owner contributing to a political candidate will bring the wokefanatics out in force.

    Id be more inclined to stop shopping at home depot because of this, instead of what was mentioned in the original post

    How can Trump possibly understand everyone's interests when he has so little empathy for actual human beings?

    While I strongly disagree with allowing unlimited money in politics, at present the founders, owners, CEO's, of companies can contribute to whom they wish.

    Likewise, customers are free to boycott any company for any reason.

    He seems to be an angry, impulsive person with a fragile ego who is so petty he attacks people with even the mildest criticisms and/or serious justifications. In addition, he ridicules people for their misfortunes. That is not a sign of someone with character.

    Sounds like a small contribution to the tip jar in return for the massive tax break.

    A week from now nobody will be paying any attention. It is currently trading at $214 and rising. Most analysts consider it a Strong Buy.

    Best Buy
    Nike
    Google
    Amazon
    Apple
    Mars, Inc.
    Nestle

    Yeah, I doubt it's because he thinks Trump is a new prince of peace, it's all about money. For some folks, money is morality.

    I might agree if you take the first 'great' out:)
    He is so far from being a great man, a great person, a great president, a great humanitarian, a great father, a great influencer, etc, etc, etc. I could spend a lot of time on his negatives but he is trying to improve the country. If only he cared about people and would humble himself and would stop lying and..............

    Seems a little silly to me. Regardless of whether they supported Trump or Hillary, I'll continue shopping there. I like their products. Besides, it's not like Home Depot employees all vote for the same candidate. There are Republicans, Democrats, Independents, etc.

    People are too easily "enraged" these days.

    Isn't it strange that some don't realize that?

    They just don't think things through do they?

    That could be the answer, but militants like these do not really care about any of that, do they?

    Why? Because the action is right, doncha know?? That's all the boycotters need to say.

    Henry Ford had Nazi sympathies and was the first American to receive the Grand Cross of the German Eagle, an award created by Adolf Hitler himself. Does this mean that we should all buy Chryslers instead?

    It's one thing to divert your business away from organizations that are actively undermining the church today. But because some guy who left the company decades ago believed something? How far back do we then go?
