Macy’s Cutting Ties With Donald Trump

Macy’s is the latest corporation to cut ties with Donald Trump following his controversial comments about Mexican immigrants.

The retailer is pulling Trump merchandise from its stores after a MoveOn.org petition asking the store to sever ties with the presidential candidate received more than 700,000 signatures.

“We are disappointed and distressed by recent remarks about immigrants from Mexico,” Macy’s said in a statement first obtained by CNN. “We do not believe the disparaging characterizations portray an accurate picture of the many Mexicans, Mexican Americans and Latinos who have made so many valuable contributions to the success of our nation.”

“In light of statements made by Donald Trump, which are inconsistent with Macy’s values, we have decided to discontinue our business relationship with Mr. Trump and will phase-out the Trump menswear collection, which has been sold at Macy’s since 2004.”

Trump has appeared in several Macy’s commercials for his menswear line.

This is the latest fallout after Univision announced last week that it would be dropping the Miss USA telecast, which was scheduled to air on July 12. The real estate mogul, however, is fighting back. Trump sued Univision for $500 million on Tuesday.

NBCUniversal — a 50-50 owner of the pageant franchise with Trump — has also cut off ties. Mexico’s largest broadcaster, Televisa, a part owner of Univision, has scrapped plans to carry the Miss Universe pageant as well.

“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best,” Trump said in a speech announcing his presidential bid on June 16.”They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists.”
