(AP/WTNH) – The retail giant Macy’s says they no longer want to work with Donald Trump. It comes amid the controversial statements the Republican presidential candidate made about Mexican immigrants coming into the United States illegally. Trump alleged that illegal immigrants from Mexico brought in drugs and conducted criminal activities. He also called them rapists. More than half a million people signed a petition to have the retailer drop him. Macy’s says it will stop selling the Trump menswear collection.
That is not the only company to cut ties with the mogul. NBC’s Spanish language station Univision stopped working with Trump shortly after Trump’s remarks. The developer is suing Univision for $500 million for breach of contract for dropping the Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants, which are a joint venture between NBC and Trump.
