There are a lot of people on the left (and in NeverTrump) who are salivating over the President taking on Goodyear Tire.
That’s because the left is reactive and not stratigic. They see a chance at a short term gain and are jumping at it.
They’ve missed the entire point of what the President did.
If the President had just tweeted and said nothing else then it might be a minor story.
But when the press secretary was asked about this yesterday, the White House, didn’t spin, didn’t back down, they Doubled down!
And when the president was asked about it later, he didn’t budge:
“I would be very much in favor if people don’t want to buy there,” Mr. Trump told reporters at a White House briefing Wednesday, adding, “I think it’s disgraceful that they did this.”
Asked whether he’d be willing to swap out the Goodyear tires on the presidential limousine, Mr. Trump responded, “Yeah, I would do that. I would, I would swap them out, based on what I heard. We’ll see what happens. Look. you’re going to have a lot of people not wanting to buy that product anymore. And they’ll buy from a competitor, made in the USA, okay?”
What does this mean? It mean that the next time a BLM group or a consulting firm or a HR department full of woke leftist decide to tell a company to pony up, give in or to retrain their workforce, instead of instantly giving in or paying off and they have in the past they now know that they do, they are just one tweet away from slicing their customer base by tens of millions.
This is why we conservatives can’t spare this man: HE FIGHTS!
The best part? Donald Trump will still retain that power after January of 2025
The old rules are gone the days of fighting back have begun!
