The Donald Trump fallout continues…

Macy's has just announced that they're cutting all ties with the Republican presidential hopeful in the wake of his latest comments on border reform.

"We are disappointed and distressed by recent remarks about immigrants from Mexico.  We do not believe the disparaging characterizations portray an accurate picture of the many Mexicans, Mexican Americans and Latinos who have made so many valuable contributions to the success of our nation, " the retail giant said in a statement released to E! News.

Of course, not long after, the 69-year-old fired back with his own comment, stating that he was the one to pull the plug on the longtime business relationship.

"I have decided to terminate my relationship with Macy's because of the pressure being put on them by outside sources. While selling Trump ties and shirts at Macy's is a small business in terms of dollar volume, my principles are far more important and therefore much more valuable. I have never been happy about the fact that the ties and shirts are made in China, and should I start a new product line somewhere in the future, I would insist that they are made in America. Quite frankly, I was never satisfied with manufacturing my product in China, but because of what they've done in terms of devaluing their currency, it is very hard for other companies to compete and made such apparel in the United States."

He continued, "These are the kinds of issues I am committed to addressing. Securing our border, negotiating trade deals that benefit the United States and bringing back jobs to American is my top priority. If elected, I will greatly strengthen our border, making it impenetrable, putting a stop to illegal immigration once and for all. I will bring jobs back to the United States—I will Make America Great Again!"
