Sign Petition to Ask Macy's to Dump

Donald Trump. I saw a clip of Trump on Letterman and Letterman was showing some of Trump's items for sale there and he looked at the label in one and said, "China". Trump had no comeback! Remember his tirades about jobs being shipped to China?


Petition Background

Macy's has a special deal with Donald Trump. They invest in developing Trump's brand and sell his clothing line and fragrance at their locations. To this end, they have had major events at Macy's Herald Square location and they often feature and promote Trump in advertisements designed to celebrate the magic of Macy's.

Recently, Macy's CEO Terry Lundgren sent Donald Trump a letter touting how excited Macy's was to be working with Trump and promising to expand Trump's brand even further than it already is.

But, why is Macy's celebrating Trump?

Donald Trump engages in especially unpleasant, nasty and despicable behavior. He has:

- Long engaged in sexist behavior. Trump has a long record of personally attacking women he disagrees by calling them "unattractive," ugly or fat. He once sent a target a personal note telling her that she has the "face of a dog." Not even his own daughter is immune to Trump's sexism. While referring to his daughter, Trump observed: "She does have a very nice figure...if weren't my daughter, perhaps I'd be dating her."

- Hypocritically complained about jobs being shipped overseas to China, despite the fact that almost his entire clothing line sold at Macy's is made in China and other Asian nations.

- Use his public platform to deny the reality of climate change. Following Hurricane Sandy, Trump publicly declared: "The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive."

4. If they're going to dump Trump's merch for being from China ...

would it not be hypocritical to keep the other stuff on the shelves that is made in China, too?

6. No, the petition

is to Dump Donald Trump for being a hypocrite and all the other things mentioned in the petition. He went on several rampages about Obama shipping jobes to China and then his merchandise is made there. It isn't because of where they are made but just that he's hypocritical and for the other reasons in the petition.

3. The VAST majority. I used to work for their...

private label division - where products like INC, Belgique, Tools of the Trade, Charter Club, Alfani, etc., were designed and manufactured. Nearly everything was made overseas. As I think about it, I can't recall a single item that was actually made in the US.

7. It has nothing to do with where his items are made

but about his nasty attitude and other things mentioned in the petition. One of the things is his hypocricy saying nasty things about Obama shipping jobs to China when he does the same thing.

10. They won't dump the beaver head, the only way they will listen

is to stay away during the Black Friday weekend. This is when they will make or break their annual sale goal, if the hundred of thousands commit to let their money do the talking this will be the ONLY way they will listen.

They are assuming consumers principles are for sale, that no one, absolutely NO one can pass up a sale. Time to prove them wrong!!!

I commit to let my buying power speak for me.
