This is the text (if you need help).

Starbucks will give jobs to 10,000 refugees over five years. Starbucks is unhappy with President Trump's ban on people from seven Muslim countries. Starbucks will welcome people escaping from war. It said: "There are more than 65 million…refugees, and we [will] hire 10,000 of them…in 75 countries around the world."

Many Trump supporters are angry. They want people to stay away from Starbucks and any company who says bad things about Mr Trump. They want Starbucks to help war veterans in the US and not refugees. Other people started the hashtag #GrabYourWallet. They want people to stay away from companies that support Mr Trump.

Back to the refugees lesson.
