Macy’s Fires Donald Trump
Macy’s has dumped the Donald Trump brand from its stores after the Republican candidate’s derogatory remarks against immigrants.
After Macy’s announcement, Trump released a statement claiming it was his decision to leave Macy’s. He then asked his followers on Twitter to boycott Macy’s.
So who’s going to fire Donald Trump next because of his toxic branding?
Macy’s statement read:
“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. 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.”
