Former President Donald Trump said Tuesday that Anheuser-Busch deserves a second chance following the disastrous affiliation of its Bud Light brand with transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney that led to boycotts among conservatives.
“The Bud Light ad was a mistake of epic proportions, and for that a very big price was paid, but Anheuser-Busch is not a Woke company, but I can give you plenty that are, am building a list, and might just release it for the World to see,” Trump wrote on his Truth Social account. “Why not, the Radical Left does it viciously to well [ruin] Conservative companies – and people! Very nasty, but it’s the way they play the game!”
Trump called out Anheuser-Busch in May and supported a boycott, even though his son, Donald Trump Jr., argued to leave Anheuser-Busch alone because he’s not in favor of “destroying an American and iconic company for something like this.”
Anheuser Busch reportedly lost more than 10% of its market share, and sales of Bud Light are reportedly down 29.9% from this time last year.
“Anheuser-Busch spends $700 Million a year with our GREAT Farmers, employ 65 thousand Americans, of which 1,500 are Veterans, and is a Founding Corporate Partner of Folds of Honor, which provides Scholarships for families of fallen Servicemen & Women,” the former president wrote Tuesday. “They’ve raised over $30,000,000 and given 44,000 Scholarships. Anheuser-Busch is a Great American Brand that perhaps deserves a Second Chance? What do you think? Perhaps, instead, we should be going after those companies that are looking to DESTROY AMERICA!”
