Another bridge is burnt for Donald Trump!
Earlier this week, NBC announced that they would be ending their business relationship with the presidential hopeful after he made racist comments about Mexican immigrants in his first campaign speech.
Now, more business giants are firing the Apprentice star as well!
Macy’s has announced it will cut ties with The Donald, and will effectively pull all Trump merchandise from its stores! The retailer titan issued the following statement:
“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.”
The store’s decision came after a MoveOn.org petition asked the store to cut ties with the billionaire — and has garnered over 700,000 signatures! Macy’s declared they found Trump’s “disparaging characterizations” about Mexican immigrants distressing, continuing:
“We are disappointed and distressed by recent remarks about immigrants from Mexico. 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.”
Trump’s response? He declared that “clearly, both NBC and Macy’s support illegal immigration” in a lengthy Instagram post:
My recent statement re: @macys — We must have strong borders & stop illegal immigration now! #MakeAmericaGreatAgainA photo posted by Donald J. Trump (@realdonaldtrump) on Jul 1, 2015 at 8:21am PDT
We think it’s safe to say the candidate hasn’t quite learned his lesson yet!
