More than 13,000 Amazon customers are calling on Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos to ‘Dump Trump,’ signing a petition that requests Amazon stop carrying the GOP frontrunner’s Donald J. Trump menswear collection.

A women’s rights organization, UltraViolet, created the petition.

“As an Amazon customer, I am deeply disappointed that you have yet to sever your business relationship with Donald Trump,” the letter reportedly states. “His hatred should have no place in the Amazon marketplace.”

After discussing crime caused by illegal immigrants during his presidential announcement, Trump suffered backlash from several companies that broke business ties with the billionaire.

KCPQ notes that even if Amazon stopped carrying Trump’s products, the retailer would still make a profit from other Trump campaign merchandise.

“A search for ‘Trump’ on Amazon’s website yields more than 44,600 results. About 15% of the listings are Prime eligible,” KCPQ reports. “A red baseball cap with Trump’s campaign slogan — “Make America Great Again” — is the first result.”
