More Than 460,000 Urge Macy's to Dump Donald Trump

A SignOn.org petition urging Macy's to dump Donald Trump has gathered nearly a half million signatures.

TrumpMacy'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.

Write the petition's creators:

Macy's has a special deal with Donald Trump. They invest in developing Trump's brand and sell his clothing line and fragrance at their locations. To this end, they have had major events at Macy's Herald Square location and they often feature and promote Trump in advertisements designed to celebrate the magic of Macy's. Recently, Macy's CEO Terry Lundgren sent Donald Trump a letter touting how excited Macy's was to be working with Trump and promising to expand Trump's brand even further than it already is. But, why is Macy's celebrating Trump?

The creators cite Trump's sexist behavior, his hypocrisy about overseas jobs, his denial of climate change, and his birther conspiracy obsession as examples of his socially irresponsible behavior.

  1. Why are you shopping Macy's?

    When I called to close my account last year, the CS rep asked why. When I told her it's because they treat her like trash while their CEO pulls in more than $14,000,000 in annual compensation, she was momentarily speechless.

    Costco's more fun anyway.

    What on Earth is there to love about Macy's? Their stores are shabby and crammed full of junk. The employees behave the way you'd expect underpaid, disposable drudges to act. Even their website is a disaster.

    There's no "magic" at Macy's, whether you're on Union Square, Herald Square or some crummy mall in South Dakota.
