Major companies ditch Trump
A NUMBER of major corporations have distanced themselves from the chaos and violence of last week’s insurrection at the US Capitol, when supporters of President Donald Trump stormed the building in a bid to reverse the results of the presidential election that the billionaire lost last year.
Many companies have paused contributions to Trump and the 147 Republican members of Congress (including eight senators) who opposed the certification of the Electoral College vote last week.
Some, like Dow Chemical, have pledged to never support those lawmakers again. Still others, like PGA of America, have cancelled agreements with Trump’s hotels and golf courses.
Other brands that are distancing themselves from Trump and his allies in Congress include; Airbnb, American Express, ExxonMobil, Goldman Sachs, FedEx, Facebook, Google, Mastercard, Microsoft and JPMorgan Chase.
