Macy’s Fires Trump

Macy's versus Donald Trump

Macy’s became the latest company to tell Donald Trump: “You’re fired.”

The retail giant announced it’ll phase out a ​specialty ​line of Trump products, after the real estate tycoon and presidential wannabe said too many law-breaking Mexicans are crossing the US border.

“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,” Macy’s statement​ reads.​

“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 GOP presidential hopeful fired back and insisted he’s the one terminating Macy’s.

He even ripped his own products because many are made in China.

“I have decided to terminate my relationship with Macy’s because of the pressure being put on them by outside sources. While selling Trump ties and shirts at Macy’s is a small business in terms of dollar volume, my principles are far more important and therefore much more valuable,” Trump said in a statement released by his campaign.

“I have never been happy about the fact that the ties and shirts are made in China, and should I start a new product line somewhere in the future, I would insist that they are made in America.”

The Donald admitted that using Chinese manufacturers was a good financial move that Americans could match.

Reality

Some people may argue about “political correctness run amok” but Donald Trump’s comments were clearly racist. Companies do business with more than just white people.
