President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Tuesday night in support of Home Depot after social media calls to boycott the home improvement retailer.
Shoppers have been taking to Twitter and other social media platforms to call for the boycott following news that co-founder Bernie Marcus plans to back Trump’s re-election bid.
“A truly great, patriotic & charitable man, Bernie Marcus, the co-founder of Home Depot who, at the age of 90, is coming under attack by the Radical Left Democrats with one of their often used weapons,” Trump said in a two-part tweet.
“They don’t want people to shop at those GREAT stores,” Trump continues, because Marcus contributed “to your favorite President, me!”
….to your favorite President, me! These people are vicious and totally crazed, but remember, there are far more great people (“Deplorables”) in this country, than bad. Do to them what they do to you. Fight for Bernie Marcus and Home Depot!

In an interview with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Marcus said that he intends to support Trump’s re-election campaign, saying that while the president “sucks” at communication, his impact on employment and aggressive stances toward China and Iran have been positive.
“These people are vicious and totally crazed, but remember, there are far more great people (“Deplorables”) in this country, than bad,” Trump tweeted. “Do to them what they do to you. Fight for Bernie Marcus and Home Depot!”
