Boycotts, banning, condemning all while claiming to be “diverse” and “tolerant” is a leftist thing and corporations are responsive to them because it’s business.
Macy’s has just cut ties with Donald Trump, joining NBC and Univision. He is suing Univision for half a billion dollars. Estimates of the financial loss for Trump are at about $50 million.
Macy’s won’t continue the Trump signature collection over his comments during his campaign announcement speech and his subsequent comments over the past week. They’re throwing out his entire line of clothing!
Trump said he doesn’t care because he doesn’t make money from it and they support illegal immigration.
Macy’s issued the following statement:
“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 said. “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.”
CNN said that Trump referred to immigrants from Mexico as “killers and rapists”, however they failed to mention he was talking about the illegal immigrants, not legal immigrants, coming across our wide open borders, though his comments were most inartfully stated. He was trying to make the point that Mexico was doing us a great disservice.
We do have Mexican cartels flowing in and out of the country with fluidity. Cartels, which also emanate from other countries, are very violent and they sell drugs, engage in trafficking, kill people and rape women and children somewhere between Central America and the United States as they cross over illegally.
Trump adjusted his comments to say, “It’s not Mexicans necessarily, they’re coming from all over.”
Does anyone really believe Trump hates all Mexican people and thinks they are all rapists and killers? He was talking about illegal aliens. We do have some frightening people sneaking into the country right now and if the American people realized how bad it is, they might rise up in rebellion. Hopefully, it’s not as many as he said. There seems to be a lot of very nice foreigners coming in with criminals mingling in.
Trump said he dumped Macy’s.
“Both Macy’s and NBC totally caved at the first sight of potential difficulty with special interest groups who are nothing more than professional agitators, who are not looking out for the people they purport to represent, but only for themselves. It is people like this that are actually running our country because our leaders are weak and ineffective,” Trump said.
One thing is certain, Trump speaks his mind and he’s remained untainted by the PC crowd but with billions in the bank, it’s easier to do.
What do you think?
