Trump Supporters Boycott Starbucks After CEO's Refugee Announcement

Starbucks CEO and chairman Howard Schultz announced Sunday the company plans to hire 10,000 refugees at locations around the world, according to a letter sent to employees.

The letter, which slammed President Donald Trump's recent executive order banning travel from predominantly Muslim countries, has caused many Trump supporters to boycott the popular coffee chain using the #BoycottStarbucks hashtag on social media.

Twitter users are also using the #BoycottStarbucks hashtag to encourage others to buy more Starbucks instead of boycotting, supporting Schultz's decision to hire more refugees.

Speaking of Twitter, since Starbucks made the announcement Sunday, Trump hasn't tweeted anything about the decision. He has, however, been vocal on Twitter defending his decision to sign the executive order.
