A presidential visit to a Harley Davidson factory in Milwaukee, Wisconsin has been canceled because the company was worried about the fallout from protesters for hosting the toxic Trump.
CNN reported, “President Donald Trump will not head to Milwaukee for a previously scheduled visit of a Harley Davidson factory after the company decided it wasn’t comfortable hosting him amid planned protests, an administration official said Tuesday…It was the threat of protests, and not Trump’s planned signing of executive orders, that made Harley Davidson uncomfortable, the official said.”
The protests are having an impact. May companies who were worried about being the focus of a negative Trump tweet are now concerned about being protested against if they have anything to do with the unpopular president.
From the thousands of people who have deleted their Uber apps to the protests that were being organized against the Trump Harley Davidson visit, companies are becoming aware of the damage to their brand that will come with associating with President Trump.
Trump was toxic before the Muslim ban, but now he is radioactive.
The President has taken unilateral actions that have isolated him from the mainstream of the country. America is pushing back, and those companies that choose to associate their brands with this president are at risk of suffering a deadly blow to their bottom lines.
