Starbucks Opposes Trump’s Executive Order, Promises To Give Jobs To Immigrants

Starbucks is opposing Trump’s executive order and says it will hire 10,000 refugees over the next five years. This sounds suspiciously a lot like it’s coming from a liberal mouth, and they say it is a response to President Donald Trump’s indefinite suspension of Syrian refugees and temporary travel bans that apply to six other Muslim-majority nations.

Howard Schultz, the coffee retailer’s chairman and CEO, informed his employees Sunday that the hiring of immigrants would be applied to stores worldwide, starting in the United States.

Schultz, a supporter of Hillary Clinton during the presidential run, also criticized other parts of a Trump agenda focused on immigration, like the repealing of former President Barack Obama’s health care law and restructuring trade with Mexico. In his letter he said that Starbucks would support coffee growers in Mexico, provide health insurance to immigrant workers and back an Obama-era immigration program that allows young immigrants who were brought to the country as children to apply for a two-year reprieve from deportation and a work permit, reports Fox News.

This is exactly why President Trump has signed these orders. Americans are sick of losing their jobs due to immigrants and their privileges granted by Obama. Trump has met with CEOs at Ford, General Motors and Boeing and asked them to create jobs in the United States, as part of his promises that he will do anything in his power to bring jobs back to the U.S.

But, as this traitorous example shows, not all corporate leaders have embraced Trump. With this decision, Shultz openly stated that he cares more about the immigrants than for the thousands of unemployed Americans or for Starbucks’ ‘trademark’ – young, American high school/college students who need a part-time job.
