Anheuser-Busch’s decision to enter Bud Light into a sponsorship with transgender activist Dylan Mulvaney was the tipping point for millions of Americans who were fed up with the woke nonsense.
Anheuser-Busch lost billions of dollars, and Bud Light lost its long held position as the number-one selling beer in America.
But now Donald Trump just made one jaw-dropping claim about Bud Light that caught his supporters by surprise.
Last April, Anheuser-Busch executives made the terrible decision to enter into a sponsorship with transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney.
In honor of his 365th day pretending to be a girl, Anheuser-Busch sent Mulvaney a custom-made can of Bud Light featuring his image.
Mulvaney posted a photo of the cans on social media and kicked off the nationwide boycott that has lasted for almost a full year.
“Bud Light is still encountering problems luring customers back to its beer,” Fox News reported last week. “Its sales were down 29.9% year-over-year for the week ending Jan. 20.”
Modelo Especial also knocked Bud Light off its long-held position as the number-one selling beer in America.
But Anheuser-Busch executives aren’t throwing in the towel on Bud Light just yet.
Bud Light is the new sponsor of the Ultimate Fighting Championship and is the official beer sponsor of this year’s Super Bowl.
And apparently, Anheuser-Busch executives are also handing out hundreds of millions of dollars to entertainers and influencers to try and convince conservatives to end the boycott.
Rock legend Kid Rock, who essentially kicked off the boycott when he uploaded a video of him blowing up cases of Bud Light with a machine gun, recently announced a change of heart and declared his support for the embattled brand.
And on Tuesday, Donald Trump endorsed Bud Light in a post on his Truth Social platform where he urged his followers to give Anheuser-Busch a “second chance.”
“The Bud Light ad was a mistake of epic proportions, and for that a very big price was paid, but Anheuser-Busch is not a Woke company, but I can give you plenty that are, am building a list, and might just release it for the World to see,” Trump wrote. “Why not, the Radical Left does it viciously to well run, Conservative companies – and people!” he continued. “Very nasty, but it’s the way they play the game!”
Trump then touted the fact that Anheuser-Busch employs 65,000 Americans and spends $700 million per year on farmers.
“Anheuser-Busch is a Great American Brand that perhaps deserves a Second Chance?,” he continued. “What do you think?”
“Perhaps, instead, we should be going after those companies that are looking to DESTROY AMERICA!” Trump concluded.
According to Fox News, Donald Trump just so happened to have a fundraiser scheduled with Anheuser-Busch on the same day he encouraged his supporters to end the boycott of Bud Light.
“It also came shortly before Jeff Miller, a Washington, D.C.-based lobbyist representing Anheuser-Busch, is slated to host a fundraiser for him next month,” Fox reported. “According to Politico, which first reported the event, Miller’s fundraiser for Trump includes some tickets for $10,000 apiece.”
Donald Trump’s supporters never expected him to sell out for cash to the woke mob.
