Toyota said on Sunday that it stands behind its ongoing funding of the attack on American democracy that occurred on January 6 2021.
Axios reported that Toyota has donated the most to Republicans who objected to the certification of President Joe Biden’s election win. The Republican objections came just hours after the mob of pro-Trump rioters broke into the Capitol, intending to stop the election certification.
The Trump mob, who called for hanging Mike Pence to stop the certification, had the same motives as the Republicans who voiced objections.
After the outlet reported on Toyota’s actions, they defended them in a statement.
“We do not believe it is appropriate to judge members of Congress solely based on their votes on the electoral certification,” said Toyota.
With their statement, Toyota threw in their lot with pro-insurrection Republicans and the attack on American democracy. Money spent at Toyota now clearly fuels attacks on the United States and the Republicans who make those attacks.
