WASHINGTON D.C. — (08-21-20) — The Lincoln Project on Friday released their new ad attacking President Donald Trump for calling for a boycott of the Ohio-based Goodyear tire company, accusing Trump of threatening American jobs during the COVID-19 pandemic because of his “wannabe king feelings were hurt”.
The The Lincoln Project ad entitled “Goodyear”, was released in partnership with Republican Voters Against Trump.
The anti-Trump ad says that thousands of Ohioans have filed for unemployment and are facing foreclosures or evictions due to the health crisis.
“Times are tough in Ohio and Donald Trump is making it worse,” the narrator says. “Demanding a boycott to put Goodyear out of business.”
The political ad also notes that a Goodyear boycott could put 3,300 union jobs at risk!
“Don’t buy GOODYEAR TIRES – They announced a BAN ON MAGA HATS. Get better tires for far less!” Trump tweeted. “(This is what the Radical Left Democrats do. Two can play the same game, and we have to start playing it now!).”

Reed Galen, a co-founder of The Lincoln Project, said in a statement that the last thing Ohioans need during the pandemic “is to suffer the economic aftershocks of a presidential temper tantrum.”
The group, founded by well-known Washington Republicans like George Conway, said it plans to spend $425,000 airing the “Goodyear” ad through next week.
Trump on Wednesday shocked not only Americans but leaders in his own party when he called for a boycott of Goodyear following reports that some employees in Kansas were told not to wear clothing with political messages, with “Blue Lives Matter” and “MAGA attire” listed as examples.
