Donald Trump Jr. has spoken out against the boycott of Bud Light and its parent company Anheuser-Busch, urging people to consider the big picture. During a recent episode of his podcast “Triggered with Donald Trump Jr.,” he said, “I’m not, though, for destroying an American, an iconic company for something like this.” The company had faced heavy criticism after featuring transgender activist Dylan Mulvaney in a marketing campaign. Despite the backlash, Trump Jr. refused to blame the whole company for the actions of one person.

It’s not just about the brand, but the conservative values Anheuser-Busch represents. Last year, the company’s employees and PAC gave about 60 percent to Republicans and 40 percent to Democrats. This is almost unheard of in corporate America where companies are constantly being pressured to conform to more “woke” policies. “Where there’s a consequence to actually being a conservative, 60/40 to the conservative side is kind of a big deal,” he continued.
Although reports suggest that the boycott has brought significant loss to the company, it’s important to note that Anheuser-Busch has been supporting conservative principles by donating more to republican candidates such as House Speaker Kevin McCarthy and less to democrats. Therefore, it’s crucial for like-minded conservatives to understand the bigger picture and support the beer company to stop the loss in profits.
In conclusion, the boycott is a clear attempt to hurt the company’s success and the conservative principles that it stands for. The left was responsible for putting Mulvaney in the spotlight, and conservatives should not support the destruction of a company over their political differences. Republicans should stand together in this fight against corporate pressure to be “woke” and support companies like Anheuser-Busch that values and supports conservative policies.
