Macy’s Dumps Trump for Racism

Macy’s has severed ties with Donald Trump after a petition calling on the company to do so gathered more than 700,000 signatures. The retailer will also phase out its Trump menswear collection. The news comes days after NBC ditched Trump’s show The Apprentice, citing his comments about Mexican immigrants. “We are disappointed and distressed by recent remarks about immigrants from Mexico,” Macy’s said in a statement. “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 fired back at the retailer Wednesday, tweeting, "For all those who want to #MakeAmericaGreatAgain, boycott @Macys. They are weak on border security & stopping illegal immigration."
