(PresidentialWire.com)- Donald Trump Jr., the son of former President Donald Trump, hit out at Delta Airlines for their “woke corporate culture” after its CEO criticized Georgia’s new voter integrity laws.
In a video, Don Jr. said that the airline is “learning the hard way not to bite the hand that feeds it” after Georgia State Republicans responded to its criticism by cancelling a planned tax break for the company.
Delta Airlines, which is Georgia-based, said that the new law that requires people to prove their identity when casting a ballot was “unacceptable.”
“After having time to now fully understand all that is in the bill, coupled with discussions with leaders and employees in the Black community, it’s evident that the bill includes provisions that will make it harder for many underrepresented voters, particularly Black voters, to exercise their constitutional right to elect their representatives. That is wrong,” CEO Ed Bastian said in a company memo sent on Wednesday.
Bastian claimed that the entire rationale for the bill is “based on a lie,” despite the fact that voter integrity expert and statistician Matt Braynard has already proved that tens of thousands of ballots were cast in multiple battleground states with false addresses.
In December last year, Braynard delivered more than 21,000 election anomalies to state officials.
The statement followed weeks of silence from Delta, but the company became more vocal on the law once Coca Cola CEO James Quincey hit out at the new legislation, too.
Don Jr. praised Georgia Republicans for cancelling the planned Tax break.
“There seems to be a big cottage industry of going ‘really woke,’ even though it doesn’t benefit,” Don Jr. said. “Why? Because Georgia wanted to have some stuff as it relates to IDs to make sure we know who’s actually voting? Oh, it’s terrible!”
Get Woke Go Broke… This is how it’s done. GA Republicans show Delta what happens when you bite the hands that feed you to push your woke BS. https://t.co/OYXmEtiZ2R

Reporters claimed that Republican legislators were “amazed” that Delta didn’t wait until the day after their legislative session was over to issue the statement against the new laws, which would have mitigated the risk of retaliation.
Delta does realize that they also require people to prove their identity when getting on flights, right?
