Macy’s formally announced early Wednesday morning that they would no longer work with Donald Trump following the presidential candidate’s remarks on Mexican immigrants.
Macy’s released a statement announcing the break up:
“Macy’s is a company that stands for diversity and inclusion. We have no tolerance for discrimination in any form. We welcome all customers, and respect for the dignity of all people is a cornerstone of our culture. 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. 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.”

The news that Macy’s would no longer work with Trump follows news that NBC would no longer air Miss Universe and Miss USA pageants, both of which are ventures of the business magnate.
