Trump Cuts Ties with Macy’s after NBC and Univision

GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump is cutting ties with Macy’s, which has sold his ties and shirts.

According to CNN, Macy’s wanted to sever business relations with Trump after his statements on illegal immigration during his presidential announcement.

His statements caused both NBC and Univision to  discontinue broadcasting the Miss USA pageant. Trump is now suing Univision for breaking the contract.

Trump said in a released statement:

I have decided to terminate my relationship with Macy’s because of the pressure being put on them by outside sources. While selling Trump ties and shirts at Macy’s is a small business in terms of dollar volume, my principles are far more important and therefore much more valuable. I have never been happy about the fact that the ties and shirts are made in China, and should I start a new product line somewhere in the future, I would insist that they are made in America. Quite frankly, I was never satisfied with manufacturing my product in China, but because of what they’ve done in terms of devaluing their currency, it is very hard for other companies to compete and make such apparel in the United States.

Trump said that these are the issues he will address as president. “Securing our border, negotiating trade deals that benefit the United States and bringing jobs back to America is my top priority,” he explained.

Trump said in a released statement:

I have always said that if you are successful, it is very hard to run for office, especially the office of President. I have also continually stated that I am not beholden to anyone and this includes NBC and Macy’s. Clearly, NBC and Macy’s support illegal immigration, which is totally detrimental to the fabric of our once great country. 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.

He vowed that if elected he will strengthen the border and put a stop to illegal immigration once and for all.

“I will bring jobs back to the United States — I will Make America Great Again!”
