Trump Supporters Say They Are Going To Boycott Hawaii And People Are Trolling

After all, they said, what does Hawaii know about attacks on American soil?

Posted on

On Wednesday, a judge in Hawaii blocked President Trump's travel ban from being enforced, just hours before it was to go into effect. Trump fired back at the decision during a rally in Nashville, calling it “unprecedented judicial overreach."

Trump's supporters have also decided to fight back against the ruling, by calling for a boycott of Hawaii.

He says temporary ban will hurt tourism, wait till he sees what crossing our president does #boycottHawaii https://t.co/W8Ldrfazhx

However, other people soon began to troll the hashtag. Because, actually, Hawaii does know something about being attacked.
