In-N-Out donates $25,000 to California Republican Party, under Trump. There's a boycott.

In-N-Out, the popular California burger chain, just dropped $25,000 on the California GOP under Donald Trump.

There's a #BoycottInNOut happening on social media.

Excerpt from an LA Times story on about the food fight:

In-N-Out, meanwhile, quickly put out a statement by Executive Vice President Arnie Wensinger that noted that the company "made equal contributions to both Democratic and Republican" political action committees in California in 2018.

Filings show that the restaurant chain gave at least $80,000 this election cycle to Californians for Jobs and a Strong Economy, a committee focused on electing business-friendly Democrats to the state Legislature. The chain also gave at least $30,000 to the committee in 2016.

"For years, In-N-Out Burger has supported lawmakers who, regardless of political affiliation, promote policies that strengthen California and allow us to continue operating with the values of providing strong pay and great benefits for our associates," Wensinger said.

The burger chain's support of the California Republican Party isn't new, however. The company already donated $30,000 to the party in 2017 and at least $30,000 in 2016.

The eatery was founded by Harry and Esther Snyder in 1948. The company has a reputation for maintaining strong Christian beliefs and puts references to Bible verses in its packaging
