Miss Universe/USA/Teen USA pageant

  A bit of backstory here: Trump bought back Miss Universe, Miss USA and Miss Teen USA from NBCUniversal in September after Univision and NBC ended their five-year deal to broadcast the pageants, following Trump’s controversial comments about Mexican immigrants. Trump eventually sold the rights to the pageant to entertainment conglomerate WME/IMG, with Fox picking up the domestic rights to air the pageants.

We need you Mr Trump — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 21, 2015 "@Themyamccurry: Where's @realDonaldTrump when you need em? #MissUniverse2015" — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 21, 2015 Trump stated that this shitshow would have never happened under his management: Very sad what happened last night at the Miss Universe Pageant. I sold it 6 months ago for a record price. This would never have happened! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 21, 2015 Sources: …

Macy’s

July 2015. Macy’s CEO decides to drop the Donald Trump product line over disagreements with Trump’s remarks on immigrants and immigration policy. DJT called for a boycott: For all of those who want to #MakeAmericaGreatAgain, boycott @Macys. They are weak on border security & stopping illegal immigration. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 1, 2015 And six months later, the stock price halved. Apparently the boycott (or the curse) was very effective. Good news, disloyal @Macys stock is in a total free fall. Don't shop there for Christmas! https://t.co/wpDDCWcLFD pic.twitter.com/vT3uGjiZ9B — Donald J.
