President Trump tweets support for Bernie Marcus over calls for Home Depot boycott

President Donald Trump took to Twitter Tuesday to defend Atlanta philanthropist and re-election campaign-supporter Bernie Marcus after calls for a boycott of Home Depot for his political leanings.

Marcus is one of the three founders of the Atlanta-based Home Depot. There have been calls to boycott the home improvement chain, of which, Marcus still holds a large number of shares, after he gave an interview to an Atlanta area newspaper about how he plans to give most of his wealth away in his lifetime.

Amid the list of offerings he has given including the Georgia Aquarium which he calls his "$250 million gift to Georgia," the millions donated to the trauma center and a stroke and neuroscience center at Grady Health System, the Marcus Autism Center, the Marcus Institute, and the Marcus Foundation, the 90-year-old billionaire discussed his political leanings.

The report was picked up by several other publications including FOX Business.

Marcus, who was one of President Trump's top donors in 2016, said he plans to support the president's 2020 re-election bid.

In a two-part tweet, President Trump defended Marcus writing:


According to the reports, Marcus has donated about $2 billion to more than 300 organizations and said he doesn't plan to stop. He said how much he will end up giving depends on how well Home Depot does. He hopes to donate up to $6 billion during his lifetime.

Forbes places Marcus' net worth at around $5.8 billion.
