“The Profit” Takes SWIPE At Trump Supporters, IMMEDIATELY Regrets IT

Host of “The Profit” and CEO of Camping World, an outdoors-travel retailer, Marcus Lemonis tried to cut business ties with supporters of President Donald Trump, but that almost backfired in a big way.

Lemonis spoke in an interview with CNBC where he said people who favored the way Trump addressed the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia should not continue business at Camping World.

Per CNBC:

Serial entrepreneur Marcus Lemonis had some choice words on Wednesday about those who may support President Donald Trump‘s response to the violent white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

“There’s no doubt that there is probably not many consumers in this country today that are in favor of what has been said in the last couple days and if they are, quite frankly, don’t shop at my business,” said Lemonis, who is CEO of Camping World and host of CNBC’s “The Profit.”

NASCAR driver and Trump supporter Mark Martin did not appreciate the exclusivity.
Martin initially tweeted support for his own brand, saying he would sell to people no matter their political views, before going a bit further:

He then threatened to return his recent $150,000 RV purchase from the company:

After the two men talked it out, the NASCASR driver retracted his tweet:

Of course the CEO then thanked Martin for the support and the purchase:
