Should companies stay out of politics?

Supporters of President Trump are boycotting Walmart for selling "Impeach 45" shirts and many feel companies should stay out of politics. More than a dozen companies severed ties with the National Rifle Association (NRA) earlier this year amidst pressure from gun control activists. In the era of Trump, more companies feel pressured to take a stand. But others think private companies have no business making political statements. What do you think?
