Why Donald Trump’s racist remarks on Mexican immigrants aren’t hurting the billionaire’s brand

Judging by discounts on Donald Trump-labeled mattresses on Amazon.com, the billionaire’s brand is hurting. But his overseas business partners don’t seem to have noticed.

Trump’s Macy’s deal, and others, are gone after his incendiary remarks about Mexican immigrants. Still, selling shirts and ties was “a small business in terms of dollar volume,” the real-estate mogul, reality TV star and Republican presidential contender said in a press release last week.

    What was “racist” about his remarks? The Donald said that the Mexican GOVERNMENT “didn’t send their best” to America. They sent drug dealers, murderers, and rapists. ALL proven TRUE and nothing to do with race (which in the case of most of these criminals being pushed north over the border are Mestizo)

    • Nothing.

    • Maurixio Garcia Sanchez

      He didnt used his brain to mention latin americans after the election,what he did was to chase the voters ,to vote only for the person who will replace Obama’s Party .

    • Maurixio Garcia Sanchez

      Minorities are criminals everywhere,all black people are criminals,latin americans the same,in the 21 century racism still the biggest problem in society.

        By racism you mean the muzzies hating and killing all the non muzzies right?

        Islam is the biggest problem in society, followed closely by progressivism (gay marriage, trans-gendered washrooms, sex ed. for 5 year olds, that sort of thing). The racism that IS a problem (and pretty well ignored because of progressives’ control of the media) is the pervasive hatred of blacks for whites.

      • Clausewitz

        He’s already stated that he has no problems with legal immigration. He just objects to the open boarders policies of the Democrats who want “”””Illegal”” immigration so that they can stockpile more Democrats in waiting. Do try to keep up with the tour.

    If diversity were really a strength, we would know it.
    It would be indisputable and not have to be shoved down our throats.

    The truth might hurt somebody’s feelings but that is the bright light of reality being shown on an embarrassing problem.
    Truth is never racist, only uncomfortable.

  • barryjr

    Is it still racism if it’s the truth? All Trump did was verbalize what many people are thinking. Maybe the GOP leaders, McConnell,Bush, McCain and Boner should get their heads out of the clouds and realize their demigod Obama is wrong.

    • Blacksmith

      This is true except the part about where their heads are. They are self serving political prostitutes.

    While it’s necessary policy for CNN to rail and scream about racist this and racist that, it’s hard to worry all that much about their effect. Illegal aliens aren’t voting. On the other hand, any candidate who stands up and shouts ‘elect me for amnesteeee!’ might be listening too much to CNN and other fonts of stupid because few people in America today actually put amnesty at the top of their to-do list for the next president. And while everyone mouths ‘it’s broken’ no one is really going to do thing about it. Illegal aliens have become yet another bellwether. Not meant to be fixed – only a stand in for how you ‘feel’ about something, like gun control, abortion and Obamacare. They’re not real issues.

    • Clausewitz

      Illegal aliens do vote. In fact they vote soon and vote often after they get their $50 from the Democrat party. “Hey amigo, where da bus pour ma votes”.

  • Morticiaa

    This issue is greater than all the details partly because of media
    There is in fact a paradigm of thought that permeates the USA and also infecting Canada, that illegals have rights and must be protected.
    Whether criminals or not…..sadly in the USA this means nearly 20’ooo,ooo yes that’s 29 million illegals many who work and establish themselves some even paying taxes….
    We are following in line with this destructive model creating the new
    Paradigm that all these illegals must be protected. Protected in the
    Same way that the un has mandated and we succum to, all the hideous rural and primate refugees from Islamic countries.
    Bravo to trump
    For getting this into the mainstream

    And yes, I have met personally some of these .canadians who work
    In these immigration areas and on the boards that d code who gets in
    And it is ver scary
    There needs to be an overhaul of all these departments and some accountability related to new mandates and adhering to these based on what the majority of Canadians want, not the extreme liberal left.

    Racist? I think you mean truthist.

  • mikeh420

    Mexican citizens are not of a single race, so stop the RACISM crapola. And how ironic that these beasts have an organization called La Raza, or THE RACE!

  • Clausewitz

    Reality is not Racist, except to a Progressive. Reality just “is”. And that’s what the meaning of “is” is.

    Back in 77 I was a designated driver for a booze and stripper road trip down to Buffalo. Between bars the boys had me pull over to the side of the road to help them relieve themselves of the stress’ of the night. Apparently an officer of the law pulled up behind us. I wasn’t paying attention and when I noticed blurted out “Oh goodness the cops”. The officer came to the window and started asking questions. When he found out we were from Canada the first thing out of his mouth was, “You know you people have no rights here Sportboy”. Yeah I was driving a sporty car. What happened? Why do people who’s first act in coming to the country is to break the law have rights. Silly me I thought rights were given when becoming a citizen.
