Donald Trump immigration comments controversy - June 2015

 

Donald Trump: Macy’s ‘caved to special interest groups who are nothing more than professional agitators’


PUBLISHED Wed, July 01, 2015 - 11:27am EDT


Donald Trump, hitting back at Macy's after the department store announced it would end their relationship over Trump's controversial comments about immigration, says "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." Trump, whose statement suggested that he was the one to first end his relationship with Macy's, added: "Clearly, NBC and Macy's support illegal immigration."


  Statement by Donald Trump on Macy's

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 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 of 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 kinds of issues I am committed to addressing. Securing our border, negotiating trade deals that benefit the United States 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 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.

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!
