Trump calls for boycott of Goodyear Tires, Goodyear Issues Statement amid controversy

President Trump has called for his supporters to boycott Goodyear tires after a screenshot of their policy against MAGA attire went viral.

Trump tweeted:

Don’t buy GOODYEAR TIRES – They announced a BAN ON MAGA HATS. Get better tires for far less! (This is what the Radical Left Democrats do. Two can play the same game, and we have to start playing it now!).

According to local NBC News affiliate in Topeka, WIBW, a Goodyear tire called the policy discriminatory.

“If someone wants to wear a BLM shirt in here, then cool. I’m not going to get offended about it. But at the same time, if someone’s not going to be able to wear something that is politically based, even in the farthest stretch of the imagination, that’s discriminatory,” he said “If we’re talking about equality, then it needs to be equality. If not, it’s discrimination.”

Goodyear tweeted in response to the controversy “Yesterday, Goodyear became the focus of a conversation that created some misconceptions about our policies and our company.”

They added “Goodyear has always wholeheartedly supported both equality and law enforcement and will continue to do so.”
