Donald Trump: Still with Macy’s & NBC

Posted Thursday November 29, 2012 1:15 PM GMT

He isn’t exactly known for his tact, but at least for now Donald Trump will retain his position as a spokesperson for Macy’s and the host of NBC’s “The Apprentice.”

The Donald was on the receiving end of some harsh words from activist Angelo Carusone, who started an online petition to try and get Trump kicked off his various public posts.

Trump tweeted that President Obama’s re-election was “a total sham and a travesty. Let’s fight like hell and stop this great and disgusting injustice! The world is laughing at us,” on election night.

In response, Carusone declared, "Macy's says it has a strong obligation to be 'socially responsible,' and 'actions speak louder than words.’”

A source from NBC noted that Donald would “have to do something pretty terrible, like join the KKK. Just being a silly Republican isn't a firing offense."
