Welcome to the brave new media world of “customer engagement” and “dialogue”. There’s a petition going viral online to Dump Trump at Macy’s. Hundreds of thousands of people have signed it. Wonder what the iconic American retail giant will say and do? They can’t ignore that much bad buzz. Or maybe they can, if sales of The Donald’s goods are strong enough. Trump, of course, will love the attention and spin it as great publicity for his ties, etc. Which it is.
“Donald Trump does not reflect the “magic of Macy’s.” –Angelo Carusone, Online Petition Asking Macy’s To Dump Trump

Urge Macy’s To Dump Donald Trump Petition:
By Angelo Carusone (Contact)
To be delivered to: Terry J. Lundgren
, Chairman of the Board, CEO and President at Macy’s Inc.
Macy’s partners with Donald Trump.
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 [she] 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.”
– Perpetuated the racially charged birther conspiracy, repeatedly arguing that President Obama has been lying and was not born in the United States.
The list goes on. But the point remains, Macy’s should dump Trump.
Macy’s boasts about its social responsibility policy, which reads: “There is no shortage of talk about the obligation of public companies to be socially responsible to the people and communities where they do business. At Macy’s, Inc., we hold those same beliefs – along with a belief that actions speak louder than words when it comes to helping tackle some of the toughest problems facing us today.”
Indeed Macy’s. Actions speak louder than words. So, act and dump Trump.
NEW goal – We need 350,000 signatures
