Macy's just dumped him too. But I doubt he cares about what

He's been saying crazy stuff for a long time and so far, this is
the only real impact I've seen and it likely isn't much on his bottom line.
It's more of an embarrassment, but I doubt that's possible with Trump.
Still, it does show very poor judgement and a reckless behavior, not
something you want in a president. He keeps doing it, even though one
day he could wind up saying something that banishes him to the wilderness,
like happened to Paula Deen. In her case, it wasn't even something she
said recently and she immediately apologized. When you have a big real
estate empire, where your name means a lot, you'd think he'd have better
sense. But so far, until now at least, he's gotten away with it. That's
because people buying $2mil+ condos, membership at exclusive golf clubs,
etc, obviously don't care. With this, maybe he lost a few Latino buyers,
but there are plenty of others.

Here's the latest example of Trump saying dumb things. Part
of his retort to Macy's dumping his ties and perfume was this:
"I have never been happy about the fact that the ties and shirts are made i
n China," he added, "because of what they've done in terms of devaluing the
ir currency, it is very hard for other companies to compete and make such a
pparel in the United States. These are the kinds of issues I am committed t
o addressing. "
What??? He's be complaining about China and how he claims they
are screwing us for years. Yet now he decides to bring into the
current fiasco he's created, that the goods sold at Macys are
made in China? I'm not saying that where they are made is that
big of a deal, but you'd have to be an idiot to have China as
a major issue you've been harping about and then volunteer that
China is where your stuff is made.
Surprised me too. I'd have thought he would have made it part of the
contract the Trump labeled good must be made in Bangladesh if that is
what he wanted. I guess he just sold his name and truly did not care
until now that he could change the spin.
