Starbucks would rather hire 10000 Muslim refugees than 10000 vets


The Starbucks Coffee brand has taken a major hit since the company’s announcement that it would hire 10,000 Muslim “refugees” in response to President Donald Trump’s temporary travel moratorium in January.

Starbucks was one of those early to criticize President Trump for putting a temporary hold on immigration from a list of seven terror-torn countries flagged by the Obama administration. In response, the coffee house giant pledged to hire 10,000 Muslim refugees over five years in protest against Trump’s order.

But since the company issued its anti-Trump statement its brand name has lost its luster with customers. Perception levels of the Starbucks brand name fell by an incredible two-thirds since its January announcement, according to a YouGov survey, as reported by Yahoo Finance.

The survey measures how potential customers feel about a company’s brand and asks if they have “heard anything about the brand in the last two weeks, through advertising, news or word of mouth, was it positive or negative.”

In the week before the company’s January refugees announcement, 30% of respondents said they would consider spending money at Starbucks. But after the statement that number fell to 24 percent, the survey discovered.

The company’s announcement immediately sparked a #BoycottStarbucks movement on Twitter and brought condemnation from coast to coast.

Not long after Starbucks issued its anti-Trump refugee statement, many Americans began to wonder why Starbucks is slighting the hiring of Americans — especially U.S. military veterans — in favor of refugees.

Ultimately, on the heels of its refugees announcement, the company felt enough pressure to issue a second statement to explain to America’s military veterans that the company doesn’t actually hate them.

  1. Support our veterans… Boycott Starbucks. Support National security.. Boycott Starbucks. Support our President.. Boycott Starbucks..

  2. The “Quiet Man” has spoken….those citizens that will not deal with the in your face tactics of the left, now realize that they can very quietly make a big impact financially..

    This is just one more case….Sales of Ivanka’s perfume was another…..We are not watching Liberal Events like the Golden Globes, Academy Awards, etc, and we are not purchasing products from organizations and companies that are trying shove their philosophy down our throats.

    We buy products for the products sake, We watch events for the events sake, we do not need a political statement.

  3. It’s time for us to stand up to these America hating businesses. If we don’t we are going to turn around soon and it will be too late. Pay attention to what is going on in Europe. We don’t hear about it because our media are in on the gig. Just look how much money George Soros is pouring into paying the worthless kids to riot over our free and fair election. They have got to get Donald Trump out of office by hook or crook and they are desperate. If Hillary had won it would already be over. Just look how desperate they are. We have got to be just as desperate. PLEASE PAY ATTENTION.
