Macy’s has a special deal with Donald Trump to sell his clothing line and fragrance. They have also honored Trump with major events at the Macy’s Herald Square location, and they sometimes feature Trump in ads in order to celebrate the “magic of Macy’s.”
For years Donald Trump has engaged in especially unpleasant, nasty, and despicable behavior, including stoking racist conspiracy theories about President Obama’s birth certificate.
I’ll personally deliver the petition to Macy’s headquarters before the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade to make sure it gets maximum attention.
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 now, and dump Trump.
To ask Macy’s to do the right thing, I created a petition on SignOn.org to Macy’s President, CEO, and Chairman of the Board, Terry Lundgren, which says:
Macy’s: Donald Trump does not reflect the “magic of Macy’s.” We urge you to sever ties with him. Macy’s says it has a strong obligation to be “socially responsible” and that “actions speak louder than words.” Indeed. It’s time to act.
