The Kroger sales ads that went viral in 2017
- by admin
The 2016 election campaign for President Donald Trump and his GOP challenger, Mitt Romney, both featured a Kroger commercial featuring President Trump in a “Make America Great Again” hat, with the tagline: “We are the Kroger of food.”
The campaign slogan was picked up by Republican politicians and conservative activists, who took to social media to criticize the fast-food chain.
The ad also highlighted Trump’s endorsement of a plan to eliminate food stamps and the Trump administration’s proposal to privatize food services.
The ads drew some attention online, with many conservatives using them as a way to argue for a more muscular approach to federal spending.
Trump was a regular at Kroger stores across the country during the 2016 election cycle, including in Iowa, Pennsylvania and New Hampshire.
The commercial also featured Trump speaking at a rally in the store and then sitting down for a Krog-branded interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos.
After Stephanopoulos asked Trump if he’d support a $1.2 trillion food stamp cut, Trump told him: “I don’t know, George, but I’m going to tell you this: The biggest thing we’re going to do is cut food stamps.
And we’re not going to cut them as much as we want, George.
How does that help?'” “
And I’m sure you’re going, ‘Whoa, I don’t get it.
How does that help?'”
The Krog ads also drew criticism from the left, who pointed to the fact that the commercials featured a white man speaking at an event.
“I’ve never seen a commercial where the guy speaking is white, or the guy talking is white,” said Robert F. Kennedy Jr., a former adviser to President Barack Obama who is a longtime critic of Kroger.
They put him in a Kroog hat, which is not only a racist stereotype, but a really bad image of the president,” he continued. “
The other thing that’s interesting about this commercial is that they also played on Trump’s fear of foreigners.
They put him in a Kroog hat, which is not only a racist stereotype, but a really bad image of the president,” he continued.
“They showed a Krogg employee talking about how foreign-looking Americans are in America, and it’s kind of a big contrast.
Trump also weighed in on the debate over the ads during a news conference in Iowa on Monday. “
In the case of Krog, there’s no doubt that the ads were designed to paint the president as a racist, and that they were intended to create a political crisis for him,” Kennedy added.
Trump also weighed in on the debate over the ads during a news conference in Iowa on Monday.
“We’re going in very strong, very clear, very forceful,” he said.
“So you’re not gonna have that debate anymore.
You’re going out in the streets.
You have a great opportunity for a very positive election and a very good presidency.”
In an interview with The Washington Post on Wednesday, Kroger’s President and CEO, Doug McMillon, said the company is working to improve its customer service and delivery of its food.
“Our focus is on our customers and our mission, which always is to be the best and provide our customers the best possible food,” McMillon said.
The Trump campaign didn’t respond to The Associated Press’ request for comment.
