Dow Chemical, other Brands hit back at PACs, Trump after Capitol Attack


Share post:

WASHINGTON – American Express, CVS, T-Mobile and Walmart are a few companies speaking up following attacks by a Pro-Trump mob deadly attack on the US Capitol.

Frozen campaign contributions, PAC reviews and policies, suspended contributions, and some pledging to ‘never again contribute financially’ to those who opposed the Electoral College vote on Wednesday are just some of the ways they’re doing it.

Big Banks have frozen all donations, including Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan Chase and Citigroup, all of which have frozen or halted donations and put campaign contributions on hold. Following a Presidential election, fundraising is historically slow.

“While a contrast of ideas, ideological differences and partisanship are all part of our politics, weakening our political system and eroding public confidence in it must never be.” BlueCross BlueShield said in a January 8th statement.

Other brands taking action since the attacks include American Express, Coca-Cola, Comcast, Microsoft, Mastercard, Walmart. All of which have indicated plans to review and re-evaluate political donations. Among the more severe include the P.G.A. pulling it’s signature championship from the Trump National Golf Course.

Dow Chemical has gone so far as to pledge it will ‘never again’ contribute to a member of Congress that opposed Election Certification Wednesday.

“Dow is committed to the principles of democracy and the peaceful transfer of power,” Dow said in a statement. “Our values – integrity, respect for people, and protecting our planet – are the foundation on which we stand and our values guide our political contributions.”

In 2016, Dow contributed over a Million dollars to the 58th Presidential Inaugural Committee.

Here’s a full list of brands and organizations so far that have spoken out against the attacks:
