A little under 1 1/2 years after unceremoniously dumping Donald Trump for comments he made about illegal immigration, Macy’s may be paying for its decision to end its business relationship with Trump.
…just as angry customers warned at the time.
The department store chain is “eliminating more than 10,000 jobs and plans to move forward with 68 store closures after a disappointing holiday shopping season,” CBS News reported.
“The retailer said Wednesday that sales at established stores fell 2.1 percent in November and December compared to the same period last year. Macy’s pointed to changing consumer behavior and said it reflects challenges facing much of the retail industry,” according to CBS.

And while there will be plenty of discussion over whether one event is tied to the other, don’t tell that to social media users, who feel the company got what it had coming.

Whoops! Anti-Trump Macy’s cutting 6,200 jobs and closing 68 stores. Hope their stupid “stand” was worth it.https://t.co/tzNn8QdAd3

@foxandfriends that is the fallout when you chose to lead your company from a political standpoint. Not the 1st and won’t be the last.
