Another Brick in the Wall: Mexican Company to Help Trump Secure the Border
Donald Trump's victory has exacerbated deep divisions within the country, and created a great deal of bitterness among some supporters of his presidential rival, Hillary Clinton. In the latest development, CEO of an Albuquerque-based SEO firm Mathew Blanchfield issued an official letter to his customers stating that his company will no longer serve the supporters of the Republican president-elect.

"If you are a Republican, voted for Donald Trump or support Donald Trump, in any manner, you are not welcome at 1st In SEO and we ask you to leave our firm," Blanchfield wrote in a letter.

It should be noted that Blanchfield has not only expressed the company's political allegiance, but also insisted that all his clients should do the same.

"We ask you, our current clients, to please respond to this letter and confirm where you stand politically. If you are a Republican or support Trump, we will no longer serve you," he wrote.

The letter states the company will continue to serve its "Democrat and Progressive" clientele.

In an interview with a local news outlet, Blanchfield said that it is his "moral obligation" to stand up for what he thinks is right. Commercial profits and even business loss, on the other hand, concerns him little.

"It is my firm belief that we elected a fascist as our next president," he said.

"The expense financially to me is immaterial," he added.

The response of the company's board of directors remains undisclosed.
