“Boycott Trump” App Helps You Hit Donald And His Supporters — In The Wallet
While you may not be able to do anything about the fact that Donald Trump will be our president come January (unless Jill Stein’s vote recount comes through in the miraculous clutch), you can avoid supporting Trump’s businesses and the companies that are affiliated with him.
The Democratic Coalition Against Trump has created a free app called Boycott Trump that provides an alphabetical list of businesses tied to the president elect. According to TechCrunch, many of the clothing companies featured on the app are included because they sell Ivanka Trump’s clothing line. Gucci also makes the list as its New York flagship store is in Trump Tower. But there are more popular and affordable options on the list that some people might have a hard time with. That includes Starbucks, which has locations in Trump Tower, Amazon, which sells clothing from both Donald and Ivanka Trump, PayPal, whose co-founder is a big Trump supporter, as well as Groupon and Sprint, which sponsored Celebrity Apprentice. There are more than 250 businesses on the list.
Nate Lerner, who is the executive director of the Democratic Coalition Against Trump, told The Huffington Post that the app is just the beginning for the coalition.
“This app is a first step in our larger Boycott Trump campaign, which will feature a unified grassroots movement centered on holding companies and individuals that help Trump in any way accountable,” he said. “The campaign is all about empowerment… By doing so we aim to give people a safe and productive way to voice their disapproval of Trump. We’ve accepted Trump won the election but that doesn’t mean we have to accept everything he stands for.”
You better preach, Nate.
