Trump has stated that Joe Biden has a hand in boycotting big corporations in order to cancel the awakening of culture
Former President Trump suggested Saturday that Republicans pull out a page of what he considers a Democratic game book by boycotting major corporations that have condemned Georgia’s new electoral reform.
Trump wrote in a statement: “For years, the Radical Left Democrats have played a dirty role by boycotting products when anything from that company is done or mentioned in any way that offends them. Now they are spending a lot of time with WOKE CANCEL CULTURE and our holy election.” .
“It’s finally time for Republicans and Conservatives – we’ve got more people – by far! County Major League Baseball, Coca-Cola, Delta Airlines, JP Morgan Chase, Viacom CBS, Citigroup, Cisco, UBS, And Merck. Don’t go back to their products until they soften. “
Trump said, “We can play the game better than them.”
He then repeated unproven allegations that the 2020 elections had been “rigged” against him.
“They rigged and stole our 2020 presidential election, which we won by an overwhelming majority, and then, moreover, boycott and intimidate companies. We will not become a socialist nation. Happy Easter!” Wrote the former president.
Some Georgia Republican lawmakers later announced that they would remove Coca-Cola products from state assembly offices.
“Unfortunately, with the passage of the Election Integrity Act 2021, your company made a conscious decision to perpetuate a national dialogue that seeks to deliberately mislead the citizens of Georgia and deepen the division in our great country,” a number of countries wrote in a letter from lawmakers.
Big Georgia-based companies like Coca-Cola and Delta have released statements condemning the state’s new legislation after activists called for a boycott. MLB also moved its All-Star game and out of state to protest the bill.
Georgia enacted sweeping electoral reform last week requiring a voter ID for absentee voting rather than relying on signature matching for verification, limited ballot boxes to one per county or one per 100,000 voters, expanding early voting days, and standardizing early voting hours to a minimum of 9 a.m. To 5 PM and to a maximum of 7 AM to 7 PM. Legislation prohibited outside groups from distributing food and water to those in line 150 feet away.
The law also gave more electoral power to the Republican-controlled land legislature. It stipulates that the General Assembly will choose the president of the state election board, rather than having the council chaired by the Georgian Minister of Foreign Affairs. It also shortens rounds from nine weeks to four.
The state election board can now also investigate county election boards and have the power to suspend county election observers – although the board can only suspend four of them at a time.
The law was enacted after the Democrats swept Peach State, which Trump lost to President Biden by more than 11,000 votes. Trump claimed mass election fraud in the state, clashed with Republican Gov. Brian Kemp and Republican Secretary of State Brad Ravensberger dealt with the election. Nine weeks after the November elections, Republican Senators David Purdue and Kelly Loeffler lost to Democrats John Usoff and Raphael Warnock.
