Apple specifically pointed to Trump s comments about minority groups, immigrants and women in explaining its choice, two sources with knowledge of the decision told Politico.

Emily Lauer, a spokeswoman for the Cleveland 2016 host committee, a nonprofit helping finance this year s GOP convention, said the committee has already raised 90 percent of its budget.

The nonprofit host committees have taken on an increasingly important role in financing the costly conventions.

Unlike the party-run organizing committees, city host committees can receive direct cash donations from corporations, not just in-kind contributions.

Any company that wants to be on right side of history should follow Apple s lead before it s too late, Robinson said.

Editor s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
