Summary

Progressives looking for a way to express their anger at Mr. Trump — and the people who support him — have threatened to boycott SoulCycle, the popular spin studio chain, and Equinox, a high-end gym, both owned by the billionaire developer Stephen Ross, who is scheduled to host the president at his Southampton home.Calling out the people who fund campaigns is not a new tactic in politics, but the question of how much should be publicly disclosed about those donors has been an issue that Republicans, led by the Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, have repeatedly raised in recent years. For Mr. Herricks, the Trump donor in San Antonio, his donation of $15,000 to the Trump Victory Fund, a joint fund-raising committee led by the Republican National Committee, and his $2,800 check to Mr. Trump’s campaign, have put him in the public arena, whether he likes it or not.Economic boycotts are protected by the First Amendment, legal scholars said.“If we see that people whose donations are highlighted publicly are being harassed, that’s a reason to be concerned,” Mr. Hasen said.
