President Trump took to Twitter on Tuesday night in help of Home Depot after social media calls to boycott the home improvement retailer.
Shoppers have been taking to Twitter and other social media platforms to name for the boycott following information that co-founder Bernie Marcus plans to back Trump’s re-election bid.
“A very nice, patriotic & charitable man, Bernie Marcus, the co-founder of Home Depot who, on the age of 90, is coming under attack by the Radical Left Democrats with one of their often-used weapons,” Trump said in a two-part tweet.
“They don’t want people to shop at these GREAT stores,” Trump continues, as a result of Marcus contributed “to your favorite President, me!”
In an interview with Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Marcus said that he intends to support Trump’s re-election campaign, saying that while the president “sucks” at communication, his impact on employment and aggressive stances towards China and Iran have been positive.
“These people are vicious and crazed, but remember, there are much more nice people (“Deplorables”) on this country, than bad,” Trump tweeted. “Do to them what they do to you. Fight for Bernie Marcus and Home Depot!”
In the latest assertion, Home Depot mentioned, “Bernie retired from The Home Depot more than 15 years ago and isn’t talking on behalf of the company. In fact, as an ordinary follow, the company doesn’t endorse presidential candidates.”
Although Marcus, 90, is now not chairman of Home Depot’s board, he instructed the Journal-Constitution that a lot of his fortune is rooted in shares of the business that he continues to own. He’s worth $5.9 billion, according to Forbes.
