(WTRF) — My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell says Costco will stop carrying his products because of his false claim that Donald Trump won the 2020 presidential election, but was denied a second term because of rampant fraud.

“Costco basically did a slow cancellation, slower than the other stores,” Lindell said.

Lindell said Costco “said they were going to discontinue us but they were going to honor their contract, which I’m not sure what that means.”

Major retailers like Bed Bath & Beyond and Kohl’s also have dropped his products.

Dominion Voting Systems has filed a $1.3 billion defamation lawsuit against Lindell, saying he falsely accused the company of rigging the 2020 presidential election.

The lawsuit was part of a body of legal action filed by the voting company, targetting false claims spread by former President Donald Trump and his allies in the aftermath of Trump’s election loss to Joe Biden.

Those claims helped spur on rioters who stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 in a violent siege that left five people dead, including a police officer. The siege led to Trump’s historic second impeachment.
