Real-estate mogul and GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump called for a boycott of Macy’s on Wednesday after the retail company said it would drop Trump’s products.
Earlier in the day, Macy’s said it was snubbing Trump because of the “disparaging characterizations” he made about Mexican immigrants during his campaign launch. Among other things, Trump accused Mexico of sending its “rapists” and drug dealers to the US.
In addition to blasting Macy’s in an official statement, Trump attacked Macy’s in a series of tweets for being “weak on border security”:
Those who believe in tight border security, stopping illegal immigration & SMART trade deals w/other countries should boycott @Macys.
