Former President Donald Trump doubled his criticism of companies that opposed Georgia’s new voting law and expanded his call for further boycotts.
“Never surrender, never give up!” Trump said. He added in a statement that his political opponents-“radical left democrats”
“So far, the Republicans and conservatives should finally fight back-we have more people than them.” Boycott Major League Baseball, Coca-Cola, Delta Air Lines, JPMorgan Chase, ViacomCBS, Citigroup, Cisco, UPS and Merck the company. Don’t go back to their products until they persevere. We can play games better than them,” Trump said.
Trump opposes another former president, Barack Obama, who supports MLB’s decision to migrate its 2021 All-Star Game.
Obama said on Twitter: “Congratulations @MLB represents the voting rights of all citizens. The American pastime has no better way to commemorate the great Hank Aaron, who always leads by example.”
Elsewhere, Ronna McDaniel, chairman of the Republican National Committee, said that she was skipping major league baseball broadcasts.
“Guess what I am doing today? Not watching baseball!!!” she said on Twitter.
Local tourism official Holly Quinlan told CNN on Saturday that Major League Baseball’s (MLB) decision to transfer games may cause Atlanta to lose about $100 million in revenue.
Georgia’s voting rights activist Stacey Abrams said she supports the alliance’s decision, but “does not want to see Georgia’s families be harmed by incidents and job losses.”

Georgia Governor Brian Kemp, who signed the bill, told Fox News that New York’s voting laws are more restrictive than Georgia’s regulations.
Kemp said on Twitter: “MLB may be afraid of Joe Biden and Stacy Abrams, but we won’t. We will continue to work hard to make it easy to vote, and Georgia is not easy to cheat.”
