"Not A Woke Company": Trump Says Bud Light's Owner Should Be Given Second Chance

• https://www.zerohedge.com, by Frank Fang

"The Bud Light ad was a mistake of epic proportions, and for that a very big price was paid," President Trump wrote on his Truth Social account on Feb. 6, referring to Bud Light's decision last year to produce a customized beer can featuring the face of transgender activist Dylan Mulvaney.

The promotion led to a sustained boycott of the brand, with Bud Light's parent company Anheuser-Busch InBev losing billions of dollars in revenue.

"Anheuser-Busch is not a Woke company," the former president added.

"Anheuser-Busch spends $700 Million a year with our GREAT Farmers, employ[s] 65 thousand Americans, of which 1,500 are Veterans, and is a Founding Corporate Partner of Folds of Honor, which provides Scholarships for families of fallen Servicemen & Women. They've raised over $30,000,000 and given 44,000 Scholarships.

"Anheuser-Busch is a Great American Brand that perhaps deserves a Second Chance? What do you think? Perhaps, instead, we should be going after those companies that are looking to DESTROY AMERICA!"

While asserting that Anheuser-Busch is not a "woke" company, the former President said he can name "plenty that are."

"[I] am building a list, and might just release it for the World to see," President Trump wrote.

"Why not, the Radical Left does it viciously to well-run, Conservative companies—and people! Very nasty, but it's the way they play the game!"

In May last year, the former president joined conservative criticism of Anheuser-Busch, while promoting the "The Great Patriot BUY-Cott Book" by Wayne Allyn Root.
