More than 100 corporate leaders met this weekend to plot their opposition to voter integrity laws across the United States following false statements made by far-left activists and top politicians like Democrat President Joe Biden.
CBS News reported that leaders from American Airlines, United Airlines, Levi Strauss & Co., Walmart, ViacomCBS, Ariel Investments, LinkedIn, Twitter, AMC Theaters, and “others” were invited to the leftist event.
Kenneth Chenault, the former chief executive of American Express Co., and Kenneth Frazier, CEO of Merck & Co., reportedly urged others to join their pressure campaign by signing onto a statement that could be released as soon as this week.
“A statement could come early this week, the people said, and would build on one that 72 Black executives signed last month in the wake of changes to Georgia’s voting laws,” The Wall Street Journal reported. “Mr. Chenault told executives on the call that several leaders had signaled they would sign on, including executives at PepsiCo Inc., PayPal Holdings Inc., T. Rowe Price Group Inc. and Hess Corp., among others, according to the people.”
The report said that “plenty of companies” were “wary of wading into politically charged areas,” with one executive telling the newspaper that it was a “no-win situation from a corporate standpoint.”
The move comes after Major League Baseball caved to a pressure campaign and relocated their All-Star Game and Draft out of Atlanta following Biden saying that he would “strongly supported” the move. MLB relocated their game to a city that has substantially less racial diversity. The move will reportedly cost Atlanta more than $100 in revenue.

Former President Donald Trump has since encouraged Americans to boycott companies that cave to the woke mob, saying that the numbers are not on the side of the far-left.
“For years the Radical Left Democrats have played dirty by boycotting products when anything from that company is done or stated in any way that offends them,” Trump said in a statement. “It is finally time for Republicans and Conservatives to fight back—we have more people than they do—by far!”
“Boycott Major League Baseball, Coca-Cola, Delta Airlines, JPMorgan Chase, ViacomCBS, Citigroup, Cisco, UPS, and Merck,” Trump added. “Don’t go back to their products until they relent. We can play the game better than them.”
Trump said that the left boycotts and scares “companies into submission” and that people must “never submit” and “never give up” otherwise “the Radical Left will destroy our Country.”
