Trump proposals spark protests, boycotts

Time – A digital image of a clenched fist bathed in the red, white and green of Mexico’s flag and decorated with the nation’s emblematic eagle and “Consumers, to the Shout of War” is part of a slew of messages, memes and videos that have been spreading in Mexico in recent days as President Donald Trump pushes for a border wall, deportations and punishing new trade rules. Others messages call for specific boycotts of U.S. companies in Mexico, including McDonalds, Walmart and Coca-Cola. One of the most heavily trending hashtags is #AdiosStarbucks, or “Goodbye Starbucks,” referring to the Seattle company which has opened hundreds of coffee houses in Mexico.
