This Retail Company Blames Trump For Loss Of Customers

If you thought that retail business could not get even more ridiculous then you have not heard what this company is blaming President Donald Trump for this time.  Target who in the past few months have seen their sales and stocks plummet to new lows after they decided to change their bathroom and dressing rooms into a gender neutral nightmare.  Now they are blaming Trump for the huge drop in sales from the Hispanic shoppers.

At the Fortune Brainstorm Tech event held in Aspen, Colorado, Target Corp Chief Executive Officer Brian Cornell claimed that the Hispanic shoppers have stopped leaving their homes to shop for fear of being deported.  According to MSN Money Cornell claims “The Hispanic customer in the U.S. is shopping much less.  They are staying home.  They are going out less often.”

What Cornell fails to mention is that Hispanics are well known for their entrepreneurial skills and according to the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce there are more than four million Hispanic owned businesses and that the Hispanics opens a new business 15 times higher than the national average.  In 2016 loan applications grew by 68.7 percent for Hispanic business.  So with that much growth in the Hispanic sector there is now wonder why Targets sales dropped when the Hispanic population is patronizing more local and family owned business.  This something that we all must do is to support local family owned businesses.

So that the truth is known Target has no one to blame but themselves for the drop in sales whether it is from their embracing of the left leaning liberal agenda of the bathroom policies, to their highly publicized decision to remove Bible’s due to an online petition demanding that they do so.  Target decided not to follow through we this as the public backlash mounted quickly.

As the old saying goes Target has made their bed, let them lie in it now.

  1. They are shopping they are just going to Walmart where they can actually afford to buy something. Target has no one to blame for their problems but their own management. The Hispanic community has STRONG ties to the Catholic Church and Targets homosexual and bi sexual policies are driving them away in droves.

    1. Did you ever think that sales online could be hurting your business, and too the people you put up front to greet the customers may have a chip on their shoulder and aren’t treating customers with respect as was the number one thing of the past….Many malls have closed all the stores, and my feeling is how the sales reps treat customers…It used to be that you tried to make the customer feel that their patronage was appreciated, but today many sales people, as I stated have a chip on their shoulder about something and take it out on customers..Maybe that might help you, who knows???

    2. FIRST OF ALL PRESIDENT TRUMP HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH TARGET GOING DOWN. IT WAS CHRISTIAN CONSERVATIVES LIKE MY SELF THAT SIGNED PETITIONS TO BOYCOTT TARGET BECAUSE OF THEIR INSANE BELEIF SYSTEM TO ALLOW MEN IN THE WOMEN’S BATHROOMS AND WOMEN IN THE MENS BATHROOMS CAUSING AN UNSAFE ENVIRONMENT TO WOMEN AND CILDREN. WHICH THERE HAVE ALREADY BEEN INCIDENTS OF ATTACKS. SO IF TARGET WANTS TO BLAME SOMEONE THEY NEED TO BLAME THEMSELVES AND TAKE FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR WHAT THEY HAVE ALLOWED AND CAUSED. ITS ALL ON THEM NOT PRESIDENT TRUMP. BUCK UP TARGET ITS ALL ON YOU! TAKE RESPONSIBILITY AND ACCOUNTABILITY FOR YOUR SCREWED UP MINDSET AND BELIEFS. STOP BLAMING PRESIDENT TRUMP ITS YOU AND ONLY YOU.

  4. the boycott over their restroom and changing room policies shows the power of the public when they see immoral activity. The big shots at target brought this on themselves. I feel sorry for their employees, but maybe they will judge the morality of their future employees.

Now I’m sporting Hardware in my left Elbow and have constant pain. They denied fault. It is very difficult to sue for slip and Fall in Texas. The most Insult to Injury was from the Target Corp. They do not give a shit about their Customers, only their MONEY!!

  7. I can’t speak for all Hispanics but I quit stepping foot in that place when they came up with their bs restroom rules. How dare they assume because one is Hispanic they’re illegal. To hell with Target, I’ll never shop there again. To think I preferred this store over Wal Mart before, I guess I’ll do all my shopping online from now on.

    1. I had the same thought- that this article sure does sound awful in pretty much equating being Hispanic with being a fearful illegal alien!! Good grief….Their crappy policies from backing RUDE awful managers who flat out refuse to honor BLATANT pricing errors (we’re talking huge end cap display of Glade candles at holiday time) …so much for the customer being ANYthing at Target- other than a target of their greed! I stayed even after the credit card scandal- after finally starting to shop there again with their “red card” after a several year refusal to shop there due to the above mgmt being SO rude to me for merely asking them to honor a huge end cap sale display- even as we stood there looking at it- “well- too bad…the register is set to ring up the right price so that’s what we’re going by. I was flabbergasted- most stores would honor it without question and then take it DOWN if it’s wrong- I went back taking pictures to show corporate that is was STILL being displayed and not ringing up as advertised! They simply blew me off and said company policy was to back their local management decisions. FINALLY went back and then it was one thing after another- the lack of securtiy over our credit card information and putting us at risk for identity theft- big whoop they gave a cheap membership to one of the lower rated “credit monitoring” companies for a year….Then the nightmare over the bathrooms- never even got to witness the removal of the Salvation Army…had already stopped going! Keep your damn 5% discount…and it’s on them for being so eager to threaten to “cancel my card if not used in the next two months!” Saved me the trouble!!!!
      REAP WHAT YOU SOW!!!
      Btw- how about a reality check- online sales monsters like Amazon are truly what is putting the final nail in their coffin- that and their overpriced CRAP- won’t stand behind it either…had their own brand cookware crack terribly on first use- wouldn’t take back, exchange, nothing! Sorry- too bad!!!! That may have been my last trip….But to do that with the bathrooms- I’d have NEVER gone back!! NOT safe- to risk the safety of millions of women over the “rights” of a few people who decide they are a different gender- don’t care what your feelings are on that issue- it’s NOT the point- it’s again catering to the FEW who make the loudest stink…the liberal leftist loud mouths who demand special treatment across the board- no matter the detriment to the majority of your customers! Good riddance….

  9. I’m afraid I am not a welcomed part of their customer base because I still know there are only two genders man and woman, no men in the ladies room with my girls. That was the nail. It was more important to Target to pander to a group that sees themselves as protected species that was the coffin. I will never shop at a Target again because I do not share their values. The silent majority has power, their money.

Blame the Christian moral right for being racists, shove the leftist agenda down their throats, this is what you get. And then insult the Hispanic population by intimating many are illegal and scared of getting deported, bahaha! Foot in mouth disease much?? Your policies are at fault, your leadership picked a side, drew a line in the sand. Pretty weak blaming Trump. You chose your side, stand by your decisions and suffer the consequences. Oh, by the way…want to know why your Canadian stores went under…..I can buy the same products you carry cheaper almost anywhere else. Same brand name—cheaper elsewhere. Hey, maybe you should hire that Starbucks CEO that cost that chain millions because of supporting Moslems. Keep up the good work jerks!

You caused your loss of business yourself, when you decided you not sale the American Flag or anything Patriotic anymore, but yet you were proud to continue to sale the Homosexual Pride Rainbow flag. Then you took it a step further by discontinuing the sale of The Holy Bible. And then the transgender bathrooms. You brought it on yourself. I personally hope you’re Boycott to the point that you have to close your doors permanently

  18. Target corporate directors made a decision based on politics and not on what is in the best interest of the store, with their bath room policy.
    Now they are paying a $ Price for that political policy.
    Let me ask a question, of target, how many gays actually shopped your Target Stores, before your gender neutral toilets ?
    How many gays shop target now ?
    The fact is gays will shop high end, shop locally owned retail shops, they will probably shop a Macy’s long before they ever go to your store, which is over priced.
    Now there are two types of people and only two types of people, male and female, and the rest is as the French would say Make believe. You can cut the junk off, put junk on, splice the junk and turn it into an apple, but there is one thing you can never change and that is the chromeazones.
    Those who made this stupid bathroom policy should be FIRED.

  19. Target is playing the victim card. The fact is that the economic powerhouse in the USA is that hated white conservative middle class. We are the ones who buy stuff. If you shoo us away, we stop buying your stuff. (This is a 3rd grade arithmetic problem.) The rest of the country, the rich Hollywood class, the elitist progressives, and their plantation, the broke-ass welfare recipients, don’t really spend a lot of money on stuff from your store.

  22. The boycott over Target’s bathroom antics should be extended to every corporate company in America by all morally based, decent people, who are fed up with their greed, and lack of responsibility in ignoring their customer’s demands All their CEO’s should be fired and forced into public service with a wage per hour salary. America is tired of the greed. The way liberals have raised their arrogant children has resulted in a Zombie ,apocalyptic, me first attitude with little regard to what our Constitution stands for. Every right should be taken away,( and by the way, could be) from them until they learn some respect and moral conduct. Until then they should have no rights to misinterpret or misuse our laws or free speech. Everyone should learn to question themselves first on any decision. If you can’t come up with the just thing to do , then keep your yaps shut and let someone else handle your problem until you can mature as a person. Our country needs its chaff and grain separated.

    I STOPPED SHOPPING ALL TOGETHER AT TARGET, when you decided to go with the flow of Obama and the 1% that DOESN’T SHOP IN YOUR STORE.
    I WOULD NOT RISK MY GRANDBABIES BEING IN YOUR RESTROOMS.
    THINK ABOUT THAT ONE.

    ITS PRETTY LOW FOR YOU TO BRING IN AND USE THE LATINO THING.
    EVEN WORSE TO STOOP AND BLAME PRESIDENT TRUMP.
    IT WASN’T HIM YOU WERE DANCING WITH IN YOUR RESTROOMS.
    IT WAS OBAMA.
    NO ONE IS AFRAID TO SHOP. THEY ARE JUST NOT SELECTING TARGET.
    CHECK MARSHALL’S TJMAX, AND YES
    ROSS..WALMART.
    CHECK ANY AND ALL GROCERY STORES
    ANY MEXICAN MARKET.
    THEY ARE PACKED.
