Former President Trump urged his followers to give Anheuser-Busch a “second chance,” after months of criticism the company has faced in from conservatives.
“The Bud Light ad was a mistake of epic proportions,” Trump wrote on his Truth Social website on Tuesday, referencing a brief partnership the company had with transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney that has cost it billions in market value.
“Anheuser-Busch is not a Woke company,” the former president said, adding “I can give you plenty that are, am building a list, and might just release it for the World to see.”
“Anheuser-Busch is a Great American Brand that perhaps deserves a Second Chance,” Trump continued, defending the global beverage company. “What do you think? Perhaps, instead, we should be going after those companies that are looking to DESTROY AMERICA!”
Last summer, Trump joined a chorus of conservative critics, blasting Anheuser-Busch as he promoted the “The Great Patriot Protest and Boycott” book, which celebrates mainstream companies boycotted by conservatives.
“It’s time to beat the Radical Left at their own game,” Trump said at the time. “Money does talk—Anheuser-Busch now understands that.”
