Right now, a generous donor will even TRIPLE your gift, which means it’ll go three times as far! This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to make a donation, please do so today. Thank you and remember, wearing a mask is an act of love.

Trump and Allies Sanctioned by Growing List of Corporations

HeadlineJan 14, 2021

A growing number of businesses have distanced themselves from Trump and his political allies. Deutsche Bank and Signature Bank say they’re severing ties with the Trump Organization, as did the real estate brokerage firm C/ushman & Wakefield.

The PGA of America said it would no longer hold next year’s championship at Trump’s golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey.

American Express, AT&T, Comcast, Dow, Nike, General Electric, Verizon and other corporations said they would cut contributions to Republican lawmakers who refused to certify Joe Biden’s Electoral College victory.

Meanwhile, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said Wednesday the city is canceling all contracts with the Trump Organization.

Mayor Bill de Blasio: “So, we will no longer be doing any business at all. By the contract language, we have the right to terminate contracts, obviously, if a criminal act has been committed. And a criminal act has been committed. So, goodbye to the Trump Organization.”
