In the wake of news that Major League Baseball would be moving the 2021 All-Star Game out of Atlanta, former President Donald Trump released a statement denouncing ‘cancel culture’ while calling for boycott of major U.S. companies.
In the statement, Trump said that the “Radical Left Democrats” are “going big time with WOKE CANCEL CULTURE and our sacred elections.”
He then called for his fans to boycott “Major League Baseball, Coca-Cola, Delta Airlines, JPMorgan Chase, ViacomCBS, Citigroup, Cisco, UPS, and Merck” — corporations that Trump says capitulated to the left’s response to Georgia’s new election law.
“Don’t go back to their products until they relent,” he said.
“Never submit, never give up! The Radical Left will destroy our country if we let them. We will not become a Socialist Nation. Happy Easter!” his statement concluded.

On Thursday, Georgia Republicans passed a sweeping law that has been condemned by Democrats as voter suppression, even labeling the new law as tantamount to Jim Crow.
“…it’s possible the law is intended to do exactly what progressives fear: reshape the electorate to the advantage of Republicans, soon after an electoral defeat, by making it harder to vote,” writes the New York Times’ Nate Cohn. “And yet the law’s voting provisions are unlikely to significantly affect turnout or Democratic chances. It could plausibly even increase turnout. In the final account, it will probably be hard to say whether it had any effect on turnout at all.”
