Will Macy’s Dump Trump From The Store?
Donald Trump likes to push people’s buttons, and it looks like his words are finally catching up to him. Over half a million people have supported a SignOn.org petition asking Macy’s CEO Terry J. Lundgren to “sever ties” with Trump because he doesn’t have the “magic of Macy’s.”
Angelo Carusone, a Long Island native, is organizing the petition. He’s most notable for pressuring companies to pull ads from airing during Glenn Beck‘s show, and now he’s got eyes on the Donald. Carusone and supporters are questioning why Macy’s, a company that prides itself on social responsibility, would continue selling Trump’s wares, and points out what he alleges are some of
the toupéed hotel magnate’s “especially unpleasant, nasty and despicable behavior,” such as making sexist remarks about his daughter Ivanka, throwing out false claims about China, perpetuating that President Obama was not born in America.
Well, we can certainly see why everyone wants to kick Donald to the curb.
As of publishing time, over half a million people have signed the petition to “dump Trump”, and we expect there to be more. Will Macy’s give into social pressure? Tune in next time, folks.
