HOUSTON (FOX 26) - Some shoppers are boycotting Home Depot because one of the store's co-founders, Bernie Marcus, plans to donate to President Trump's reelection campaign.
He retired from Home Depot in 2002 and the retailer says he isn't speaking on behalf of the company. However, people are taking to social media anyway, using #BoycottHomeDepot and urging others not to shop there.
Outcry became so fierce that the president himself spoke out in defense of Marcus.
More and more the Radical Left is using Commerce to hurt their “Enemy.” They put out the name of a store, brand or company, and ask their so-called followers not to do business there. They don’t care who gets hurt, but also don’t understand that two can play that game!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 10, 2019
