A "Boycott Target Pledge" has grabbed the attention of conservatives with 890,000 people signing it (as of noon. Central) in protest over Target's "inclusivity" policy that allows customers and employees to use any bathroom that matches their "gender identity" rather than their biological sex.
But according to an interview with Fox Business, there is a much larger boycott on the horizon. In speaking about the Republican presidential race, vocal Donald Trump supporter and Texas megachurch pastor Robert Jeffress said the Republican Party will suffer from a huge voter boycott if Trump is not nominated.
Jeffress said, "66 percent of Republicans say they believe whoever comes to Cleveland with the most delegates and votes should win and that would be Donald Trump. And I'm going to predict that if the establishment somehow wrestles this nomination away from Trump, even though the rules allow for it, I think you're going to see a massive boycott."
The reason the response will be so significant, Jeffress explained, is because "The people Trump has energized are people outside of the Republican system. Many of them ... are people who have sat on the sidelines in the last four to eight years. They're coming into this because they are excited about Trump and I think that they're going to sit out. I think that's a very real possibility."
Do you think he's right?
