Trump Defends Generous Home Depot Co-Founder After Liberals Threaten Boycott!


Remember Bernie Marcus – the billionare who co-founded Home Depot and plans on giving away much of his wealth to charities and helping Trump get re-elected before he dies?

Well, ever since the 90-year-old philanthropist announced that he is going to be donating to the Trump 2020 campaign, liberals have taken to social media to shame Bernie and are threatening to boycott Home Depot.

See for yourself in these tweets:

For reference, here's a video showing why the left is so mad at Bernie Marcus (not only is Bernie a top donor to the Trump campaign, but he has also criticized the socialist running for president that shares his name):

After the #BoycottHomeDepot hashtag went viral on Twitter, President Donald Trump took it upon himself to speak up for Bernie Marcus, who has been a major funder of Trump's campaigns.

He told everyone to "Fight for Bernie Marcus and Home Depot!"

Here's what the president had to say on Twitter in a series of posts:

Other Twitter users that see the ridiculousness of the left's call to boycott Home Depot responded to the left-wingers getting offended by Marcus's donation.

Some pointed out the irony of liberals threatening to boycott Home Depot when it's unlikely they've ever shopped there themselves:

Others made more excellent points regarding the foolishness of the boycott:

The Hill has more to say about President Trump's defense of Bernie Marcus:

        

President Trump on Tuesday defended Home Depot co-founder Bernie Marcus amid boycott threats from shoppers over the billionaire’s declaration he would donate to the president’s reelection bid.

“A truly great, patriotic & charitable man, Bernie Marcus, the co-founder of Home Depot who, at the age of 90, is coming under attack by the Radical Left Democrats with one of their often used weapons. They don’t want people to shop at those GREAT stores because he contributed to your favorite President, me!” Trump tweeted Tuesday.

“These people are vicious and totally crazed, but remember, there are far more great people (‘Deplorables’) in this country, than bad. Do to them what they do to you. Fight for Bernie Marcus and Home Depot!” he added.

Fox Business also commented:

President Trump praised Home Depot co-founder Bernie Marcus on Tuesday after some shoppers vowed to boycott the home improvement chain after the billionaire said he would support the president’s 2020 re-election bid.

“A truly great, patriotic & charitable man, Bernie Marcus, the co-founder of Home Depot who, at the age of 90, is coming under attack by the Radical Left Democrats with one of their often used weapons. They don’t want people to shop at those GREAT stores because he contributed to your favorite President, me!” Trump wrote in a two-part tweet Tuesday night. 

“These people are vicious and totally crazed, but remember, there are far more great people (‘Deplorables’) in this country, than bad. Do to them what they do to you. Fight for Bernie Marcus and Home Depot!” he added.

Marcus told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution in late June that he plans to support Trump in the upcoming presidential election. The 90-year-old was a top donor to Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.

“[Trump’s] got a businessman’s common sense approach to most things,” Marcus said. “…Now, do I agree with every move that he makes? No, I don’t. But the truth is he has produced more than anybody else. He has. If we look at this country, I would say that we are better off today than we were eight years ago or six years ago.”

What do you think?

Will you be answering Trump's call to fight for Bernie Marcus and keep sending your business to Home Depot?
