NEW YORK (AP) — Macy’s is the latest company to end its relationship with Donald Trump as the fallout from the real estate mogul’s remarks about Mexican immigrants continues.

Macy’s has carried a Donald Trump menswear line since 2004, including $70 button down-shirts and $65 striped ties. Macy’s said in a statement the retailer is disappointed and distressed by Trump’s remarks and will end its relationship with him.

Companies have been cutting ties with Trump left and right after his presidential campaign kickoff speech last week in which he declared that some Mexican immigrants bring drugs and crime to the U.S. and are rapists.

NBC, Spanish-language station Univision, TV company Ora TV and Mexican TV network Televisa have all cut ties with Trump, who is suing Univision for $500 million for breach of contract for dropping the Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants.

      Well, I used to boycott Macy, but now, I will be shopping again….and for sure a lot of Latinos also. So this is an excellent economical move by Macy’s.

    Donald Trump is an ugly racist! He is finally the treatment he deserves. Free speech has consequences; the Constitution protects you but your choice of words can harm you especially when you’re trying to be President. Mexican-Americans are part of America’s melting pot and they deserve the same respect as their White-American counterparts. I am happy to see him in this fragile state. He is too rich, ignorant and self-righteous, and a civilized society should not tolerate such bigotry from anyone!
