An activist campaign seeks to shame U.S. companies over Trump

Disturbed by Donald Trump's presidential campaign, U.S. activists have taken out online advertisements, circulated petitions, put up billboards and even chipped in for an airplane banner to try to shame companies into dropping their sponsorships of the Republican National Convention in July. The campaign, led by the political arm of California-based advocacy group Color of Change, seeks to weaken Trump's White House bid by pressuring companies to skip the Cleveland convention where he is expected to formally become the nominee. "The fact of the matter is that any employee of these Fortune 500 companies that are sponsoring the convention, if any of those employees went into their job and said the things Donald Trump is saying, they'd be fired," said Rashad Robinson, spokesman for Color of Change PAC.
