Of all the retailers in the country, Walmart is typically branded one of the most American ones. They profit heavily from their reputation of patriotic values and being the picture of success from capitalism, hard work, and the fruits of pursuing the American dream, despite using cheap overseas labor to produce a glutenous amount products.
Their cheap products and underpaid retail labor aren’t what makes America great, but they apparently don’t think the Donald Trump does either, as the President of the United States.
Walmart has likely seen a massive increase in sales within the first seven months of Trump’s presidency, with all that he’s done for the economy. However, that hasn’t stopped their CEO from licking the gift horse in the mouth.
Walmart CEO Doug McMillon came forward this week to stab President Trump in the back with an announcement that’s effective immediately. What should also follow, is a boycott of this company who can’t see the error in criticizing the president who has done more for this country, the economy, and subsequently his business than those who he’s choosing to take sides with in his statement.
