If we’re boycotting all fast-food restaurants over political reason then what left
Boycotting A Business Only Because It Supports Trump…?
Various organizations endorse and support political candidates for their political views. Just because one particular organization endorses a candidate, who is against your political ideology doesn’t mean that you have to boycott him/her.
Even the Loyal Customers Were Not Happy with This News
Trump’s political views have not been met with the best of intentions. His decisions to introduce deregulation laws and to cut taxes for the top 1 percent are problematic for the people. Therefore his opponents think that anyone who supports Trump indirectly supports miseries of the wretched poor people of America.
Americans have got another reason to question the IQ of their fellow citizens.
