The list of businesses that are dissociating themselves with Trump is growing. In the latest move, Macy’s department stores have decided that they will no longer carry the Trump line of clothing and ties in any of their stores. WhenMacy’s fired Trump, Donald was quick to go on the offensive and say that he in fact ended the relationship with them. This sounds familiar to what was said after NBC cancelled three Trump shows earlier in the week.
According to Brian Torchin, the department store took offense to comments Donald Trump made about Mexican immigrants being killers and rapists. The spokesperson for Macy’s said that they are severing ties with all Donald Trump products because they do not feel that Macy’s shares those same opinions. Trump was quick to respond to the department store, saying he was already in talks with them about pulling his products from the chain because he is unhappy that they are manufacturing the ties in China and not here in the United States.
Some question Trump that if he was unhappy with the production of his merchandise, why did he wait until now to break off the relationship. Regardless, Macy’s is just another in a long list of companies that do not want to be associated with the presidential candidate as his campaign kicks into high gear. Trump appears to be getting positive reaction however, as his ratings went from 4% to 12% in the presidential race.
