Six major companies had no problem sponsoring the 2012 GOP presidential convention when a career politician was the nominee. However, they pulled out in 2016 when President Donald Trump was nominated.
The Hill reported that Wells Fargo, JPMorgan Chase, UPS, Motorola, Ford and Walgreens all declined to participate in last year’s GOP convention after learning that Trump would be the nominee. Though they refused to actually say that Trump was the reason they pulled out, it’s pretty clear that their decision was about him.
In a disturbing twist, Wells Fargo decided to move forward with sponsoring the Democratic convention’s host committee in Philadelphia due to their large market share there.
“We are supporting the City of Philadelphia host committee given our significant community bank and team member presence,” said Wells Fargo spokeswoman Erika Reynoso. “Our decisions around the host committees were determined late last year before either party determined the nominees. This is consistent with our past practices.”
Since then, other companies have turned on Trump as well. Conservative Fighters reported that Heineken has just sent out bottles that call for “a world without borders or barriers.”
“Here’s to an Open World: To a world without borders or barriers,” Heineken said in their ad campaign. “To the belief that there’s more that unites us than divides us. To finding common ground. So raise a bottle with the person next to you. Because a stranger is just a friend you haven’t had a cold Heineken with yet. Open your world.”
Heineken is clearly trying to rebel against Trump’s crackdown on illegal immigration by calling for open borders. But the company is willfully ignoring that countries like Sweden, Germany, and France which all advocates for open borders have seen a startling spike in violent crime and terrorism. The vast majority of Americans don’t want this same plague on their communities and polls indicates 80% disapprove of sanctuary city policies, and that 52% of voters support Trump’s temporary ban of refugees.
