Women's Group Petitions Amazon to Remove Trump Merchandise
The petition said the candidate is "inciting violence at his rallies and spewing vitriol that white supremacists, like David Duke, love."
According to UltraViolet, 36,000 people already have signed the petition since it began last week. The group is hoping Amazon will follow Macy's (which dropped the brand last August) in pulling Trump's merchandise.
Available on Amazon are a slew of products, and the Donald J. Trump Signature Collection of menswear.
"Donald Trump has promoted violence at campaign events, stoked the fires of sexism and racism and espouses a political philosophy that borders on fascism," said Shaunna Thomas, co-founder of UltraViolent, in a press release. "These values have no place on the Amazon marketplace. Last year, Macy's did the right thing—listening to its customers and concluding that Trump was bad for business. It's long past time that Amazon listened to the voices of its customers and takes steps to dump Trump."
