Former US President, Donald Trump, asked this Saturday to boycott Major League Baseball and the companies Coca-Cola, Delta Airlines, JPMorgan Chase, ViacomCBS, Citigroup, Cisco, UPS and Merck, to follow the example of the “radical democrats of the left” who they boycott those who offend them.
In a statement from Save America, a fundraising group for his campaign, Trump said that Republicans and conservatives can better play the same “dirty” game that in his opinion Democrats play with companies and there are also “many more.”
Without specifying the exact reason why Americans should boycott Major League Baseball and the aforementioned companies, Trump refers to “the holy elections.”
In this regard, he says that the Democrats “fixed and stole” the presidential elections of November 2020 and, as if that were not enough, “they boycott and scare the companies into submission.”
“Don’t buy your products again if they don’t give in,” he says.
Trump concludes with a message asking not to let the radical left destroy the United States.
“We do not want a socialist nation. Happy Easter”, Trump points to end.
Since leaving the White House, the former Republican president resides in Palm Beach (southeast Florida), in his private club Mar-a-Lago, with his family.
Before leaving power, the Facebook and Twitter platforms suspended their accounts because they considered that their messages incited violence.
On January 6, 2020, Trump supporters stormed the Capitol, the seat of Congress, after a rally in Washington in which the then president harangued them to fight to defend his supposed victory over Democrat Joe Biden in the elections, that that same day he was certified as a winner.
Training, the Joe Biden government reported this Friday that it has lifted the sanctions imposed by the administration of former President Donald Trump on the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC), urging a more collaborative relationship.
Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo there was imposed sanctions and rejected visas for outgoing ICC prosecutor Fatou Bensouda after she launched an investigation into alleged war crimes committed by US military personnel in Afghanistan.
The Hague-based court further irritated the United States by opening an investigation into alleged war crimes in the Palestinian territories committed by Israel, an American ally who rejects the authority of the ICC.
Pompeo’s successor, Antony Blinken, said the United States remains “in total disagreement” with the actions taken by the ICC.
“We believe, however, that our concerns about these cases would be better addressed by involving all stakeholders in the ICC process rather than by imposing sanctions “Blinken said in a statement.
Undo Trump’s measures
This lifting of sanctions is part of the campaign of the beginning of the Biden administration to dissolve the measures of the Trump era that it considers erroneous.
On March 30, Blinken formally eliminated the maneuver promoted by its predecessor so that the defense of human rights abroad by the United States was limited to causes favored by the conservatives, such as religious freedom and property issues, while ignoring LGBTQ and reproductive rights.
Blinken said a report prepared for former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo trying to reduce the number of freedoms that are given priority in American foreign policy was “unbalanced”, did not reflect the policies of President Joe Biden’s administration and will not be used to guide them. The Pompeo Commission on Inalienable Rights report had been harshly criticized by human rights groups.
Secretary of State Blinken also reversed a decision by the Trump administration to remove sections on reproductive rights from the State Department’s annual reports on human rights in other countries. “Women’s rights – including sexual and reproductive rights – are human rights”, he stated.
Human rights activists condemned Pompeo’s commission report when it released it last year amid much fanfare from religious and conservative groups. The report was part of a broader plan by the Trump administration to restore the primacy of what some officials consider to be the values of the nation’s founders.
