    On Wednesday, US President Donald Trump called for a boycott of Goodyear Tire & Rubber after leaks suggested that the company had banned its employees from wearing "Make America Great Again" hats.

    It turns out that Donald Trump's limousine dubbed the "Beast", is equipped with Goodyear Kevlar-reinforced run-flat tires capable of running the armoured car during an emergency.

    White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany has refused to comment on whether they are planning to change the tires.

    "I’m not going to comment on security matters", she said.

    The US president recently slammed the company after leaks appeared on Twitter suggesting that within its "Zero Tolerance" policy, the company has banned its employees from wearing "MAGA" hats.

    ​The leaked photo was reportedly part of the company's "diversity" training and came from Goodyear’s corporate headquarters.

    ​Goodyear, however, issued a statement, saying that the leaked visual wasn't created or distributed by the company. According to the statement, the company asks its employees to refrain from any sort of political campaigning in the workplace.

    ​Nevertheless, the president's call has received a positive response from some people on Twitter.
