Still, like it or not, American companies are increasingly being pulled into the country's political and cultural wars.PATAGONIAThe outdoor retailer dived head first into politics last year with a campaign against U.S. President Donald Trump's move to dramatically shrink two Utah national monuments.The move sparked a furious response from Trump and Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, who accused the company of lying.MERCKMerck CEO Kenneth Frazier, at the time one of only four African-Americans leading a Fortune 500 company, was the first to resign from Trump's business councils last summer over the president's remarks on the white nationalist protests in Charlottesville, Virginia.Tech companies also spoke out forcefully against the Trump administration's decision to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which allows some people brought to the company illegally as children to stay.OTHER COMPANIESAmazon is a favorite Trump target, with the president earlier this year criticizing the retailer's business deal with the U.S. Postal Service.Lockheed Martin, Boeing and Toyota have also been on the receiving end of Trump's Twitter tirades.
