Welcome To Trump America: People Boycott Big Business Brands Starbucks, Uber, Amazon, Walmart, New England Patriots +More (See Complete List Here)
Trump’s executive order, issued on Friday and later blocked in part by federal judges, prohibits citizens from Muslim-majority Iran, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Sudan, Somalia and Libya from entering the United States for at least 90 days. The order bans refugees from Syria indefinitely. The ban — which Trump has defended as not being a “Muslim ban” despite his own support for such a policy during his campaign and his explicit statements favoring Christian refugees in recent days — created chaos at airports worldwide this weekend, was been met by protests around the U.S., and criticized by a number of American lawmakers.
Here’s the full statement the White House released from the President on Sunday afternoon:
“America is a proud nation of immigrants and we will continue to show compassion to those fleeing oppression, but we will do so while protecting our own citizens and border. America has always been the land of the free and home of the brave. We will keep it free and keep it safe, as the media knows, but refuses to say. My policy is similar to what President Obama did in 2011 when he banned visas for refugees from Iraq for six months. The seven countries named in the Executive Order are the same countries previously identified by the Obama administration as sources of terror. To be clear, this is not a Muslim ban, as the media is falsely reporting. This is not about religion – this is about terror and keeping our country safe. There are over 40 different countries worldwide that are majority Muslim that are not affected by this order. We will again be issuing visas to all countries once we are sure we have reviewed and implemented the most secure policies over the next 90 days. I have tremendous feeling for the people involved in this horrific humanitarian crisis in Syria. My first priority will always be to protect and serve our country, but as President I will find ways to help all those who are suffering.”
The website grabyourwallet.org provides a detailed list of every company that carries Trump products, has donated to the Trump campaign, or has CEO’s that publicly endorsed Trump.
Amazon sells Trump brand shoes, clothing, and home furnishings. They have also yet to publicly condemn Trump’s Muslim Immigration Ban, instead releasing a politically-neutral message to employees offering “contingency plans” for those who stranded by the ban.
Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos did not support Trump during the election, but struck a more appeasing tone after he won, wishing him “great success” with his presidency/
Uber CEO Travis Kalanick is a member of Trump’s Economic & Policy Forum, which he says he took based on his “belief that by speaking up and engaging we can make a difference.”
Uber also charged less money than typical while New York taxi drivers were on strike to protest Trump’s Muslim Immigration Ban.
Its competitor Lyft, by contrast, has pledged to donate $1 million over the next four years to the American Civil Liberties Union, which successfully stopped the deportation of detained immigrants from Trump’s banned Muslim-majority countries.
Yuengling CEO Richard Yuengling Jr publicly endorsed Trump during the election, telling Eric Trump “Our guys are behind your father. We need him in here.”
MillerCoors Chairman Peter Coors hosted a top-dollar fundraiser for the Trump campaign, the cost of attendance priced at $10,000 per couple, with VIP tickets costing $50,000.
Ultimate Fighting Championship
Ultimate Fighting Championship’s President, Dana White, spoke during the Republican National Convention in support of Trump, calling him a “loyal friend.”
“Donald Trump is a fighter and I know he will fight for this country,” White said.
The extreme Christian CEO of Hobby Lobby David Green initially supported Marco Rubio during the Republican primary, saying Trump “scares me to death.” But he later endorsed Trump over Hillary because he was under the impression that “Clinton has made no secret she believes government interests supersede the protection of religious liberty.”
A Mexican-American has also reported being discriminated against at a Hobby Lobby location, with an employee saying “Trump won the election, I don’t have to help you.” After calling the manager, she and her friend was told that there was “no proof that this interaction took place and that no action would be taken.” The Communications Director of Hobby Lobby has since said they would investigate these allegations, though no updates have been made public.
Elder Beerman currently sells Ivanka Trump’s clothing line at its stores all over the country.
Walmart sells Ivanka Trump brand shoes, clothing, and fragrances at their many stores across the country. Walmart also gave $150,000 to Trump’s inaugural committee and sponsored a ball celebrating the inauguration.
Sears sells Trump home furnishings and fragrances, as well as Ivanka’s shoes and clothing lines. Trump’s pick for the secretary of Treasury, former Goldman Sachs executive Steve Mnuchin, was also on the board of director’s at the struggling retail outlet.
Zappos sells Ivanka Trump’s shoes, clothing, and handbags.
By contrast, Zappos’ competitor shoes.com removed Ivanka Trump’s shoes from its inventory following mass boycotts, telling its customers that “your voices have been heard.”
Overstock founder Patrick Byrne was actually a Gary Johnson supporter, even bankrolling the pro-Johnson documentary Rigged 2016. But his outlet continues to sell Ivanka Trump shoes and clothing.

Change.Org has a petition up to Boycott Trump and lists the following advertisers. The last time I went to their website they had a sign up saying that it was intermittent downtime due to a denial of service attack from China, presumably for their call to release the Chinese artist Ai Wei Wei.
