Home Depot co-founder Bernie Marcus isn’t having any of the anti-Trump Left’s nonsense. The billionaire recently declared that he’s devoting some of his wealth to getting Donald Trump re-elected president of the United States. Of course, the Left went ballistic, calling for boycotts over these remarks and sending threats to a man who has given billions to philanthropic causes. That’s liberalism in 2020, folks. Marcus is undeterred, though angered by the recent insanity that’s been hurled at him over his support of the president. In a Facebook post, he noted such reactions are what you would see in Russia, China, or Argentina, not in the U.S. concerning the support of a political candidate. Second, he noted that he’s been retired from Home Depot since 2002 and that all this boycott would do is hurt the 500,000 workers employed by the home improvement chain.
Marcus is already rich, you progressive morons. He’s a billionaire. You’ll never win in trying to torch his wallet. Marcus also laid down the gauntlet, saying that with all their hollering and rage, he’s not backing down from his support of Trump. He’s a proud deplorable and makes a bet that he will do more to better people’s lives than these losers could in “40 lifetimes.”
....to your favorite President, me! 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!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 10, 2019
I woke up this morning thinking it was going to be another great day. I've been celebrating with friends, family and the community since I turned 90. I've told you about the gracious gift of $117 million that was collected and given in my honor to four charities that mean a lot to me. All that happiness blew up because I said in a newspaper interview that I have supported and will continue to support Donald Trump.
Negative stories... vicious threats, without cause, to boycott the company that has enabled my foundation to give billions to support autism, medical research, education, heart and neurological issues like stroke, and to help our veterans. The company that I retired from in 2002 and have not had a business relationship with in almost 20 years. A company that has employed more than a half-million people. The people who work there are affiliated with both political parties or no party at all. They are of all religions and all colors and backgrounds. Why would people want to hurt them?
All because I give my voice and some of my money to our President. Am I in China? Argentina? Russia? That's what it feels like to me.
It saddens me that our country has come to this, where I, as a private citizen, cannot express my feelings. It angers me and it saddens me, but it sure as hell is not going to stop me. If you thought it would, you've got the wrong guy.
In the next ten years, God willing, I will accomplish more to save this world than my critics will do even if they had forty lifetimes.
We cannot retreat, folks. The economy is booming. Every sector of the economy added jobs last month. The stock market has reached all-time highs under this administration. The small business and investment community’s confidence has reached their highest levels in years. Why should we trash that? We should we downplay that? Well, because the liberal media and their minions got their marching orders: ‘orange man…bad.’ The Left has become increasingly unhinged after 2016. You can’t have a reasonable conversation with them. So, screw them.
How dare we support a president who is trying to grow the economy.
