Macy’s severs ties to Donald Trump over anti-Mexican remarks


Macy’s department store became the latest business to disassociate itself from GOP presidential candidate and real estate mogul Donald Trump over his anti-Mexican comments.

A few weeks ago in making his announcement as a candidate for the GOP nomination, Trump said, “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re sending people that have lots of problems and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists.”

Univision and NBC parted ways with Trump earlier this week. Macy’s was selling Donald Trump apparel said that they didn’t have tolerance for discrimination in discontinuing their relationship with the GOP candidate.

Macy’s statement said, “We are disappointed and distressed by recent remarks about immigrants from Mexico. … In light of statements made by Donald Trump, we have decided to discontinue our business relationship.”
