As the election is now less than 6 months away, it is time to remind ourselves where we are spending our money and do our best to send a message to companies that have donated money to Donald Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign. The country is literally falling apart and there is no excuse for these corporations having supported the main cause for all the chaos.
1.) Home Depot
The co founders of Home Depot have collectively donated over $7 million to PACs seeking Trump’s reelection. Cofounders Bernie Marcus and Ken Langone even donated $100k directly to Trump’s inaugural committee right out of their pockets. Just go to Lowe’s instead?
2.) CVS Pharmacy
CVS is in fact one of the largest donors to Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign. They’ve given at least $35,000 to the Trump Victory PAC and $500,000 to America First Policies, which unsurprisingly is all about being anti immigration.
3.) Taco Bell
Unfortunately a franchise conglomerate called “MUY! Companies” owns hundreds of Wendy’s, Taco Bell, and Pizza Hut franchises in the U.S. The CEO of this company has donated $440,000 to Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign. With so many fast food options out there, it’s an easy pass.
4.) Marvel Entertainment
Chairman and former CEO of Marvel Entertainment Isaac Perlmutter is one of Trump’s biggest fans and is even a member of Mar-A-Lago. He has donated about $5 million to a hybrid super PAC dedicated to re-elect Trump and has personally wrote a check of $360,000 in support of Trump’s 2020 re-election.
On top of the MUY! Companies CEO, most of the people making money off Wendys are all big Trumpers. Billionaire investor Nelson Peltz is the CEO of Trian Partners, which owns a 12.4% stake in Wendy’s. He himself has donated tens of thousands of dollars to Trump, all while refusing to help out Wendy’s workers while living in his $123 million estate in Palm Beach, Florida.
