Trump has targeted at least 21 companies with calls for boycotts, threats of taxes, and other ominous warnings — see the list

President Donald Trump has targeted more than a dozen companies including AT&T, Boeing, Facebook, Merck, Nordstrom, T-Mobile, Toyota, and Twitter. He has accused Amazon of abusing its relationship with the US Postal Service, called for boycotts of Macy’s and Apple, blasted General Motors for closing a plant in Ohio, and alleged that Google was rigging its search results against him. Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories. President Donald Trump said last week that the “radical left” is using boycotts to “hurt their enemy.” But “two can play that game,” the president warned on Twitter. Indeed, Trump has targeted a number of companies during his time in office and while he was campaigning for president. His targets have included Apple, Amazon, AT&T, Boeing, Facebook, GM, Google, Macy’s, Merck, Nordstrom, T-Mobile, Toyota, and Twitter. A spokesperson for the White House did not respond to Business Insider’s request for comment on this article. Here are some of the companies Trump has criticized over the years:AmazonFoto: Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos.sourceGetty Trump has repeatedly attacked Amazon on Twitter. He has accused the tech giant of not paying enough taxes, abusing its relationship with the US Postal Service, and putting “many thousands of retailers out of business.” Trump also frequently accuses Amazon of influencing news coverage through the Washington Post, which is owned by Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, and he once referred to Bezos as “Jeff Bozo.”I have stated my concerns with Amazon long before the Election. Unlike others, they pay little or no taxes to state & local governments, use our Postal System as their Delivery Boy (causing tremendous loss to the U.S.), and are putting many thousands of retailers out of business!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 29, 2018So sorry to hear the news about Jeff Bozo being taken down by a competitor whose reporting, I understand, is far more accurate than the reporting in his lobbyist newspaper, the Amazon Washington Post. Hopefully the paper will soon be placed in better & more responsible hands!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 14, 2019….In my opinion the Washington Post is nothing more than an expensive (the paper loses a fortune) lobbyist for Amazon. Is it used as protection against antitrust claims which many feel should be brought?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 23, 2018AppleFoto: sourceAssociated Press In 2016, Trump encouraged a boycott against Apple in response to the company’s decision to prohibit FBI access to an iPhone owned by one of two shooters who killed 14 people in San Bernardino, California, in December 2015. “Boycott all Apple products until such time as Apple gives cellphone info to authorities…” then-candidate Trump tweeted in February 2016.I use both iPhone & Samsung. If Apple doesn't give info to authorities on the terrorists I'll only be using Samsung until they give info.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 19, 2016Boycott all Apple products until such time as Apple gives cellphone info to authorities regarding radical Islamic terrorist couple from Cal— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 19, 2016 The FBI later gained access to the locked phone without Apple’s help. Trump also called on Apple last year to move production from China to the US.Apple prices may increase because of the massive Tariffs we may be imposing on China – but there is an easy solution where there would be ZERO tax, and indeed a tax incentive. Make your products in the United States instead of China. Start building new plants now. Exciting! #MAGA— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 8, 2018AT&TFoto: sourceAP/Richard Drew Trump appeared to encourage a boycott against AT&T in June. If people stopped using AT&T, then the company “would be forced to make big changes at CNN,” Trump tweeted. AT&T acquired CNN through its $85 billion purchase of Time Warner in 2018.I believe that if people stoped using or subscribing to @ATT, they would be forced to make big changes at @CNN, which is dying in the ratings anyway. It is so unfair with such bad, Fake News! Why wouldn’t they act. When the World watches @CNN, it gets a false picture of USA. Sad!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 3, 2019BoeingFoto: sourceReuters Trump targeted Boeing in April, saying the company should fix its 737 Max jets and rebrand the plane model after it was involved in two deadly crashes. “What do I know about branding, maybe nothing (but I did become President!), but if I were Boeing, I would FIX the Boeing 737 MAX, add some additional great features, & REBRAND the plane with a new name,” Trump tweeted. “No product has suffered like this one. But again, what the hell do I know?” What do I know about branding, maybe nothing (but I did become President!), but if I were Boeing, I would FIX the Boeing 737 MAX, add some additional great features, & REBRAND the plane with a new name.No product has suffered like this one. But again, what the hell do I know?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 15, 2019 Trump also blasted Boeing in 2016 for the costs of a new Air Force One plane. “Boeing is building a brand new 747 Air Force One for future presidents, but costs are out of control, more than $4 billion,” Trump tweeted. “Cancel order!” Boeing shares dipped following Trump’s tweet.Boeing is building a brand new 747 Air Force One for future presidents, but costs are out of control, more than $4 billion.

Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 12, 2019 He has also accused Facebook, along with Google and Twitter, of political bias. Facebook was always anti-Trump.The Networks were always anti-Trump hence,Fake News, @nytimes(apologized) & @WaPo were anti-Trump. Collusion?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 27, 2017The only “Collusion” is that of the Democrats with Russia and many others. Why didn’t the FBI take the Server from the DNC? They still don’t have it. Check out how biased Facebook, Google and Twitter are in favor of the Democrats. That’s the real Collusion!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 15, 2018General MotorsFoto: sourceJustin Sullivan / Getty Trump targeted General Motors in March in a series of tweets that blasted the automaker for closing a plant in Lordstown, Ohio. He urged the company to reopen its plant and said it “must act quickly.” He also said GM “let our country down.”Because the economy is so good, General Motors must get their Lordstown, Ohio, plant open, maybe in a different form or with a new owner, FAST! Toyota is investing 13.5 $Billion in U.S., others likewise. G.M. MUST ACT QUICKLY. Time is of the essence!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 16, 2019Just spoke to Mary Barra, CEO of General Motors about the Lordstown Ohio plant. I am not happy that it is closed when everything else in our Country is BOOMING. I asked her to sell it or do something quickly. She blamed the UAW Union — I don’t care, I just want it open!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 17, 2019Democrat UAW Local 1112 President David Green ought to get his act together and produce. G.M. let our Country down, but other much better car companies are coming into the U.S. in droves. I want action on Lordstown fast.

Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 28, 2018….results on “Trump News” are from National Left-Wing Media, very dangerous.

Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 28, 2018Macy’sFoto: sourceAP/John Amis Trump called for a boycott of Macy’s after the retailer said it would stop selling Trump-branded products. “Those who believe in tight border security, stopping illegal immigration & SMART trade deals w/other countries should boycott @Macy’s,” Trump tweeted in July 2015, one month after he announced his presidential campaign. “For all of those who want to #MakeAmericaGreatAgain, boycott @Macys. They are weak on border security & stopping illegal immigration.” He later said he hoped the Macy’s boycott would continue forever and that “Macy’s stores suck” and “are bad for U.S.A.” Trump posted the tweets after Macy’s announced plans to stop selling Trump merchandise due to “disparaging characterizations” he made about Mexican immigrants.Those who believe in tight border security, stopping illegal immigration & SMART trade deals w/other countries should boycott @Macys.— Donald J.

News media: The New York Times, The Washington Post, CNN, and moreFoto: The New York Times headquarters.sourceSpencer Platt/Getty Images Trump has lobbed criticism at a number of major news organizations while in office, branding several as biased, “fake news,” and the “enemy of the people.” The news outlets he has targeted include The New York Times, The Washington Post, CNN, ABC News, NBC News, ESPN, and CBS. Here’s a sampling of his tweets against the media: The Washington Post and New York Times are, in my opinion, two of the most dishonest media outlets around.
