The Home Depot cofounder Bernie Marcus is an avowed supporter of US President Donald Trump, and that seems to be costing the home-improvement store at least some customers.

The billionaire sparked an online backlash when he recently told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that he planned to donate to the president’s 2020 reelection bid. Marcus said that while he didn’t “agree with every move” Trump had made, the president had still “produced more than anybody else.” He added: “If we look at this country, I would say that we are better off today than we were eight years ago or six years ago.”

The article goes on to state the following:

Marcus retired from Home Depot back in 2002, and the company did not immediately respond to Business Insider’s request for comment. The businessman, who Forbes reports is worth $5.9 billion, is no stranger to the realm of politics.

Republican Sen. Marco Rubio weighed in on the matter, wondering if everyone has now gone crazy. He tweeted: “In just the last 7 days we have decided that the Betsy Ross flag is offensive, to kick police officers out of Starbucks, boycott Nike (again) Starbucks (again) & now HomeDepot. And to lick Ice Cream at grocery stores & put back in freezer. Has everyone gone crazy?”

President Trump tweeted, “A truly great, patriotic & charitable man, Bernie Marcus, the co-founder of Home Depot who, at the age of 90, is coming under attack by the Radical Left Democrats with one of their often used weapons. They don’t want people to shop at those GREAT stores because he contributed to your favorite President, me!

“These people are vicious and totally crazed, but remember, there are far more great people (“Deplorables”) in this country, than bad. Do to them what they do to you. Fight for Bernie Marcus and Home Depot!”

Show your support for President Trump!

    We have a lot of illegals hanging around the parking lot at a home depot looking for work. This is a sanctuary state so nothing will be done. Btw it’s California

    So the left is up in arms because the owner of Home Depot donates to the Trump campaign but nothing is said about Tom Seyer for putting billboards up calling for President Trump impeachment. Ridiculous. Home Depot is my new friendly store
