Goodyear Tire chief executive Rich Kramer said employees can wear apparel expressing support for law enforcement after it faced a boycott call from Donald Trump

This translation has been automatically generated and has not been verified for accuracy.Goodyear Tire chief executive Rich Kramer said on Thursday the company had clarified its policy to make clear employees can wear apparel expressing support for law enforcement after it faced a boycott call from U.S. President Donald Trump.

Goodyear on Thursday said it had a longstanding policy of asking employees of refraining from working place expressions of support for any political candidates.Trump accused the Ohio-based company of “playing politics” by forbidding workers from donning the “Make America Great Again” caps favored by his supporters.

Trump said it was “disgraceful” that the company would prevent employees from wearing attire supporting the ‘Blue Lives Matter’ movement that supports law enforcement, while allowing support for other causes. The image spelled out appropriate and inappropriate displays, with ‘Black Lives Matter’ and ‘Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Pride’ deemed acceptable, while ‘Blue Lives Matter’ and ‘MAGA Attire’ were not.

Media garbage! Facing Trump criticism, cut the biased inflammatory headlines. You know.for a fact they caved from public outrage and their own employees revolting! You hear the tape of the announcement and the discussed snears in the background.

Faced with public criticism they mean. Consumers don't want companies being political activists. No Goodyear tires here. Next.

Too late goodyear NASCAR, you've already shown your true anti-police colours!

Don't back down to that bully Trump.

Good thing the president, secret service and almost mall police vehicles .. use Goodyear lol ..

Too late

Wow can’t believe they’re allowing the government to dictate their speech

Too late.

Damn right. Adults are fighting back. And they are folding like the empty, polyester suits they are.

They got caught and they are back peddling. Good that realDonaldTrump called them out of there bigotry. You should not be dividing any people just because of your political choice. Huge stupid mistake on goodyear

Too late.

These companies should realize that making a political stance in these polarized times will piss off half the electorate. Who buys more tires? Woke SJWs or conservative people? The apolitical and ignorant are wild cards. It's a losing proposition anyway you look at it.

Nice compromise, GOODYEAR!

too late, go woke, go broke.

Now we get to see how these silly political movements like BLM is dividing and taking a lot of companies hostage. How about no political messages? Is the ulterior motive to dismantle capitalism?

Trump praises QAnon conspiracists, appreciates supportU.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday praised the supporters of QAnon, a convoluted, pro-Trump conspiracy theory, and suggested he appreciates their support of his candidacy. Ok. Settle down. Praise is a strong word for trolling the MSM. Deranged Conservatives. Now that I know this Q thing supports Trump it makes sense why MSM won't shut up about them.
