Macy’s will no longer sell Donald Trump’s menswear collection, which includes accessories such as tie clips and cufflinks, because of Trump’s derogatory statements about immigrants.
“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.”
Other companies have distanced themselves from Trump following his remarks, including NBCUniversal, which has fired him as host of The Apprentice and announced it will no longer air the Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants, which were jointly owned by NBC and Trump.
