Calls to boycott over Co-Founder  support for trump, Home Depot sought to distance itself from billionaire co-founder Bernie Marcus after he pledged to back President Trump’s bid for reelection in 2020.

Marcus told the Atlanta Journal Constitution, late last month, that he plans to support Trump’s bid for another term, according to social media.

Meanwhile, Home Depot spokesman Margaret Smith said in a statement that Marcus retired more than a decade ago and is not speaking on behalf of the company.

It was unclear whether these calls for a boycott had gained traction, but threat was enough that Trump took to Twitter to express support for Marcus whom he called a “patriotic and charitable man”.
