Amazon.com to Dump Trump Products?
Everyone, except the voters, is crapping themselves about Trump. That tells me he is doing something right.
(World Net Daily) - Amazon.com, the popular online retailer, is reportedly under pressure from shareholders to stop selling products associated with Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee for president.
According to the New York Post, a group claiming to represent 1,500 Amazon shareholders has asked CEO Jeff Bezos to end its marketing of Trump shirts, hats, ties and other products promoting the Trump campaign.
“This isn’t about politics: Donald Trump’s misogyny, racism and outright bigotry are dominating the political news cycle,” shareholder group UltraViolet said in a letter to Bezos.
The letter noted the continued presence of Donald Trump products “poses a risk to Amazon’s reputation.”
A spokesman for Amazon, which holds its annual shareholder meeting May 17, declined to comment to the Post.
