The list of corporations cutting ties with President Trump and those on his side has just kept getting longer since the January 6th “storming” of the US Capitol Building that took place during Trump’s “stop the steal” rally.
On January 6, a four-hour-long Save America rally supporting President Trump was held at the Ellipse. The president gave a speech that lasted longer than an hour, and a march to the US Capitol Building for a rally was also planned.
Inside the building, Congress was discussing the results of the Electoral College vote. The president’s allies attempted to stall the election’s certification by asking for a ten-day audit of the results from states believed to have experienced electoral fraud.
However, Trump supporters and others fought their way into windows and doors to get into the Capitol Building. Members of Congress were evacuated wearing gas masks.
The following is a list of companies that have cut off ties with the President and/or his friends, allies, and supporters — as reported by Axios, The New York Times, the Associated Press, and other publications.
