This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Created by the Democratic Coalition Against Trump, Boycott Trump is the first app of its kind, allowing users to hit Trump where it hurts most - his wallet. Search through over 250 companies and people to see they're directly connected to Trump. Make Trump and his allies pay, literally, for their hateful rhetoric and regressive policies. Use consumer action to take a stand for what's right!
We all know how Trump Towers and Trump Steaks are connected to Trump, but did you know Nike, MillerCoors, Johnson & Johnson, Gucci, and many other major companies can all be directly linked to him as well? Find out how!
Boycott Trump was created by the Democratic Coalition Against Trump as a means of empowering people to take against Trump beyond the 2016 election.
What's New in Version 2.0.3
We've fixed a few bugs, and cleaned up our user interface, to deliver a better, more informative experience.
The majority of businesses are cited for "sponsoring" Celebrity Apprentice, which I assume means they bought ads to run during the show. The show was cancelled so boycotting them is pointless. It's not like the businesses can stop running ads on Trump's show in response to being boycotted. (Side note: I couldn't read the entire info on these businesses because the text was too large and the app wouldn't allow me to scroll)
The next most frequent type of "Trump support" was stores that sold books, clothing or other merchandise that has the "Trump" name (Donald or Ivanka Trump merchandise). I'm not going to boycott a bookstore for selling a book written by Trump --that seems un-american. As for stores that sell Ivanka Trump fashion line merchandise, I dunno. I certainly would never buy her stuff, but to boycott a store carrying her merchandise seems like a round about way to protest Trump ...although since she is one of his "advisors", boycotting her stuff might be worth it.
Last and definitely least, there are a few (very few) businesses that are cited for directly endorsing and funding Trump's campaign. Those I will boycott. But by listing all these other businesses, this app kinda hides the prime supporters of Trump.
2/13- y'all manage to make the app even worst. Also please include actual(factual) updated info on the companies listed. Info other than several years ago they sold some products on their website. Something of substance like endorsements they've made and are making.
So far the companies I looked into check out to actually support nazi trump in some form so the app is legit, for now. The apps off putting appearance makes it seem like a sham so my feedback is to have that improved.
Just downloaded it again today after getting an email that this app had been significantly improved. It is much better. Makes it easy to contact or tweet to companies supporting Trump.
