Donald Trump sure has the one thing he seems to crave the most: his name in the papers. This time it’s because of a petition asking retailer Macy’s (NYSE:M) to end the company’s relationship with the real estate tycoon.
More than 400,000 people have signed the online petition, which is located at signon.org. The petition cites Trump’s “sexist” comments and his pursuit of President Obama’s original birth certificate as reasons why Macy’s should abandon him.
A spokesman for Trump said the bond between Macy’s and The Donald is a strong and important one. He went on to say that Trump’s fashion and accessories lines are top sellers for the retail chain.
Trump, a veteran tweeter, has not responded to the petition either in person or via Twitter. He did release a tweet earlier this week about his new clothing line available at Macy’s.
