Wealthy Trump donor whines about ‘harassment’ after customers threaten to boycott his business

Published

on

A wealthy donor to President Donald Trump is upset at the purported “harassment” he’s been subjected to by customers who are upset by his support of the president.

The New York Times reports that Justin Herricks, the owner of a San Antonio-based oil and gas company called Precision Pipe Rentals, found himself on the receiving end of angry phone calls this week after Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-TX) publicized his donations to the president’s reelection campaign.

“I’ve had people say, ‘Hey, we were going to use you for business, but we found out you’re a racist,'” he complains to the Times. “‘We hope that you burn in hell and your business will go with you.'”

Billionaire Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross has similarly been subject to boycott threats over his decision to host a high-dollar fundraiser for the president’s reelection bid.

Bill White, a former president of the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in New York, tells the Times that he doesn’t care if people get upset at him — and if they do, it will only make him want to send the president more money.

“More people are putting out their chests, standing up straight, saying: ‘I’m in. To hell with you publicizing my name,'” he explains to the Times.

President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw in Syria in less than 24 hours put American troops at risk as they were being fired on by Turkey. However, according to the Wall Street Journal , the military was also forced to bomb our own military base.

Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger, who has been critical of Trump's decisions in the past months, pointed out the factoid in a tweet Wednesday evening, asking, "Is this the America you grew up believing in?"

Published

On Wednesday, Politico reported that lawyers working for the House of Representatives issued a blistering court filing accusing President Donald Trump, among other things, of trying to use the power of his office to "obstruct his own impeachment."

The filing, part of the House Judiciary Committee's attempt to seek testimony from ex-White House Counsel Don McGahn, cites the White House's repeated efforts to block current and former Trump administration officials from testifying — and even some allies of Trump who have never held any position in his government.
