It’s no great surprise that the President has had a complicated relationship with big business since taking up residence in the White House. The titan of real estate is a capitalist in its truest form, and up until his presidential race, most people didn’t think twice about his political leanings. However, so many businesses seem to bolster their own short term goals by aligning with the left that playing nice the President would be bad for business. Mega-retailers like Walmart are hedging their bets by trying not to alienate the Hillary supporters and professional welfare collectors whose hatred of President Trump seems to grow by the day.
Freedom Daily recently reported about Walmart’s CEO taking time out of his busy day to throw some shade at President Trump:
Walmart CEO Doug McMillon came forward this week to stab President Trump in the back with an announcement that’s effective immediately. What should also follow, is a boycott of this company who can’t see the error in criticizing the president who has done more for this country, the economy, and subsequently his business than those who he’s choosing to take sides with in his statement.
According to the Washington Examiner:
Walmart CEO Doug McMillon criticized President Trump’s response to the violence in Charlottesville, Va., over the weekend, but said he planned to remain engaged with the White House.
In a statement posted on the retail giant’s website, McMillon wrote that Trump “missed a critical opportunity to help bring our country together by unequivocally rejecting the appalling actions of white supremacists.”
Trump did not specifically call out white supremacy and racism in his first comments on the violence in Charlottesville on Saturday, although he did in a public appearance Monday.
Apparently, McMillon thinks that he knows better than President Trump how the country should be run, and what is best for Americans. It sure seems like if he were right he could have run for President and won. But he didn’t, so he’s contented himself with preaching from the front row. That also happens to give him a great view of some of the destruction that is happening in his stores, by the very people that he’s pandering to.
Daily Mail reported on some of the unfortunate events that have befallen the superstore chain following Hurricane Irma:
Miami-area police have arrested more than 50 suspected looters during and after Hurricane Irma, including 26 people who allegedly broke into the same Walmart.
City officials on Tuesday lifted a local 7pm to 7am curfew that had been in place since Sunday.
As normality began to return, police commanders said officers would work 12-hour shifts, 24 hours a day, to discourage any more criminality.
‘I said we would not tolerate criminal activity or looting or anybody who takes advantage of our residents,’ Deputy Chief of Police Luis Cabrera said at a news conference. ‘I was not joking.’
The Walmart incident took place on Saturday night at a store on the north side of Miami, said Miami-Dade Police Department spokesman Alvaro Zabaleta.
Six men were arrested on Monday and accused of breaking into stores at the Midtown Miami shopping complex before making off with merchandise that included shoes, bags and laptops.
The looting attempts spanned the city, said Miami Mayor Tomas Regalado, from the well-heeled Brickell and downtown neighborhoods to the low-income Liberty City and Little Haiti areas.
‘I think it’s despicable that anyone would try to take advantage of the fact that we’re in a vulnerable state,’ Miami Commissioner Francis Suarez said.
Officers have also been busy trawling roads that can be perilous for motorists because power cuts shut off traffic lights at intersections and streets have accumulated shredded vegetation spread by the storm’s powerful winds.
‘We have never experienced, not even with Hurricane Andrew, the amount of trees that are downed in the city,’ Mayor Regalado told the news conference. Hurricane Andrew hit Florida in 1992.
Since Irma began bearing down on the state late last week, authorities have been warning any would-be looters against taking advantage of the situation.
Rick Maglione, the police chief of Fort Lauderdale, about 30 miles north of Miami, told residents to stay home during the storm and look after their loved ones.
‘Going to prison over a pair of sneakers is a fairly bad life choice,’ Maglione said in a statement.
To prove just that point, Miami police posted a photo on Facebook on Sunday of several accused looters sitting in a jail cell with the caption: ‘Thinking about looting? Ask these guys how that turned out. #stayindoors.'”

It might be jumping to conclusions to say that the CEO’s statements resulted in these losses for the company, but there’s little doubt that they will be finding a way to point fingers at the President over it. The state of the country is something that the President inherited, and individuals with sentiments like McMillion’s are a large part of what got us here.
If there were no questions that there would be no race excuse or poverty excuse and that punishment would be handed out swiftly to those who break the law, incidents like this would no doubt decrease sharply. But if we persist in undercutting law enforcement, and reinforcing the victim complex in the malcontents in the country, problems like this are bound to increase. You, as an individual, may not love every single thing that the President does, but you would be like cutting off your nose to spite your face. We need law and order, and the executive branch is one of the only places we can turn to right now, and it’s not the time to be undermining it.
