Boycott Donald Trump! A Plea To Advertisers To Pull Sponsorship

Written by Featured Organization on 21 November 2012.

Today,best-selling author George Fraser, Chairman of FraserNet, Inc. and founder of The PowerNetworking Conference, the #1 Black Business Conference in America, join the ranks with talk show hosts Lawrence O'Donnell and Bill Maher, popular liberal blog Daily Kos, Andy Ostroy, political & pop culture analyst, Huffington Post and thousands more callingfor a boycott of all-things Donald Trump. 

"We must send a resounding message that we will not tolerate his relentless, outrageous, bigoted rants about President Barack Obama. Great stores like Macy's should fire him and we should not purchase anything with the Trump name on it." says Fraser.

"It's time to send a clear message to this race-baiting, arrogant, self-aggrandizing fool that what he's been doing in his attempts to delegitimize Obama's presidency is not only irresponsible and reprehensible, but unpatriotic as well. For that there must be a price to pay. And what would hurt Trump most is a swift kick to his ego and his wallet.

Stop going to Trump's casinos in Atlantic City, which are listed here. There are plenty of other casinos which are owned and run by decent people who probably don't question Obama's citizenship or whether he's properly earned his degrees. 

Stop buying Trump's Signature Collection clothing line. Do you really want the brand of ignorance and anti-Americanism stamped on your back now?

Stop staying at Trump Hotels in New York, Chicago, Las Vegas and Hawaii. There are so many respectable hotel chains who'd happily take your money while not claiming that President Obama's an illegal alien who cheated his way through college and grad school.

Take a stand, America, and let Donald Trump know that there are consequences to his shameful actions", says Andy Ostroy

Once again, let our voice be heard as loudly during the re-election of President Obama and join the movement. These are our consumer dollars-and they're part of our voice. We should use them for products we like-to support companies we like and to back causes we like.
