Trump Responds After Now Macy's Dumps Clothing Line Over Comments

Macy's is the latest company to sever its relationship with Donald Trump as the fallout from his remarks about Mexican immigrants continues.

The department store has pulled Donald Trump merchandise from store shelves. This on the same day that rapper Flo Rida, who had been the highest-profile performer scheduled for Miss USA, dropped out along with 'The Voice' winner Natalie La Rose.

Former NFL star Emmitt Smith, who was one of the judges, has backed out of the gig with the hosts and NBC -- that was to broadcast the event on July 12.

In a statement Macy's said: "We are disappointed and distressed by recent remarks about immigrants from Mexico. We do not believe the disparaging characterizations portray an accurate picture of the many Mexicans, Mexican Americans and Latinos who have made so many valuable contributions to the success of our nation."

"In light of statements made by Donald Trump, which are inconsistent with Macy's values, we have decided to discontinue our business relationship with Mr. Trump and will phase-out the Trump menswear collection, which has been sold at Macy's since 2004."

In his own statement, Trump claimed that he "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," Trump continued.

He also said: "I've never been happy about the fact that the ties and shirts are made in China, and should I start a new product line somewhere in the future, I would insist that they are made in America."

"Clearly, NBC and Macy's support illegal immigration, which is totally detrimental to the fabric of our once great country," he concluded. "Both Macy's and NBC totally caved at the first sight of potential difficulty with special interest groups who are nothing more than professional 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."
