Home Depot co-founder writes op-ed explaining why he's endorsing Trump, Democrats launch boycott campaign

Conservative commentator Melissa Tate responded by saying, "The betas saying they are going to #BoycottHomeDepot don't even know how to change a light bulb let alone swing a hammer. Trust me, these are not Home Depot shoppers."

This isn't the first time that Democrats attempted to organize a boycott against Home Depot. In July of 2019, Marcus showed support of Trump, and leftists launched an online campaign to attempt to cancel the hardware retailer.

At the time, Home Depot spokeswoman Margaret Smith released a statement noting that Marcus retired more than a decade ago and does not speak on behalf of the company. "In fact, as a standard practice, the company does not endorse Presidential candidates," Smith told NPR last year.

Bernie Marcus has a net worth of $7.4 billion, according to Forbes. Last July, Marcus told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that he plans to donate "80 to 90% of whatever is left of his wealth will go to his foundation, which in turn will give to philanthropic causes" after he dies.
