Trumping Macy’s

Will Donald Trump destroy every business relationship he has as part of his bid to become President of the United States of America?

 

Donald Trump recently announced on Twitter that he “never went bankrupt but like many great business people [has] used the laws to corporate advantage” but given the rate at which he’s burning through business relationships, will that statement remain true? Yesterday, Macy’s department stores were added to the list of those he’s terminated dealing with.

In a statement, shared on Facebook, The Donald announced:

 

“I have decided to terminate my relationship with Macy’s because of the pressure being put on them by outside sources. While selling Trump ties and shirts at Macy’s is a small business in terms of dollar volume, my principles are far more important and therefore much more valuable. I have never been happy about the fact that the ties and shirts are in made in China, and should I start a new product line somewhere in the future, I would insist that they are made in America. Quite frankly, I was never satisfied with manufacturing my product in China, but because what they’ve done in terms of devaluing their currency, it is very hard for other companies to compete and make such apparel in the United States. These are the kind of issues I am committed to addressing. Securing our border, negotiating trade deals that benefit the United Sates and bringing jobs back to America is my top priority”.

 

“I have always said that if you are successful, it is very hard to run for office, especially the office of President. I have also continually stated that I am not beholden to anyone and this includes NBC and Macy’s. Clearly, NBC and Macy’s support illegal immigration, which is totally detrimental to the fabric of our once great country. Both Macy’s and NBC totally caved at the first sight of potential difficulty with special interest groups who are nothing more than potential agitators, who are not looking out for the people they purport to represent, but only for themselves. It is people like this that are actually running our country because our leaders are weak and ineffective”.

 

“If elected, I will greatly strengthen our border, making it impenetrable, putting a stop to illegal immigration once and for all. I will bring jobs back to the United States — I will make America Great Again!”

 

Donald Trump’s desire to become President has plainly gone to his head. He plainly isn’t wise enough to see that but unless someone reasons with him quickly, he might actually find he has a very much diminished business to return to when reality strikes and he fails to become the Republican nominee. The last CNN poll has him on just 12% against Jeb Bush’s 19% in the 2016 Republican primary.

  1. I’m surprised he is as high as 12%… quite frankly.. If his Presidential prospects were as big as his ego… he’d be President for life!!

  2. I once asked a barman whether the Donald had any enemies……..he looked hard at me, thought for a moment and replied ‘ No, only the guys that knew him ‘ …..he would probably say the same of me!
