A total of five companies have already severed ties with presidential candidate Donald Trump following his racist comments about Mexicans during his launching speech. Univision, Televisa, Farouk Systems, NBC Universal and Macy’s have already cut all connections with Trump.


However, Trump is soaring high in three different polls conducted within the weeks – he is second place among republican candidates in Iowa according to a Quinnipiac University survey released Wednesday; he also comes in second to Jeb Bush in a new national CNN-ORC poll released on Wednesday; Trump also comes second in New Hampshire as revealed by a CNN-MUR poll released last week.

Five companies dumped Donald Trump

Univision, Televisa, Farouk Systems, NBC Universal and Macy’s decided to cut ties with Trump following his derogatory speech where he said Mexican immigrants are “rapists” and “drug dealers.”

“When Mexico sends its people they aren’t sending their best. They are bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime, they are rapists and some are good people but I speak to border guards and they tell us what we’re getting,” Trump said during his speech.

Macy’s is the latest to turn its back against Trump saying, “We do not believe the disparaging characterizations portray and accurate picture of the many Mexicans, Mexican Americans and Latinos who have made so many valuable contributions to the success of our nation.”

“In light of statements made by Donald Trump, which are inconsistent with Macy’s values, we have decided to discontinue our business relationship with Mr. Trump and will phase-out the Trump menswear collection, which has been sold at Macy’s since 2004,” Macy’s said in a statement.

Univision was the first corporation to announce it is no longer working with Trump by not airing the Miss USA pageant on July 12. The company also said it will no longer work on any projects connected to the Trump Organization.

NBC Universal, which partnered with Trump for Miss Universe and “The Apprentice,” has also ended its business relations with him.

Mexico-based Televisa followed suit, saying Trump has offended the entire Mexican population. Farouk Systems Inc which owns hair care brands said that in behalf of the large Latin American descent making up a large percentage of its employees and loyal customers, it has decided to stop working with Trump.

“As a company proudly founded on the concept of coming to the USA in pursuit of the American Dream, Mr. Trump’s comments do not and will never reflect our company’s philosophy or practices,” the company’s CEO said in a statement.

According to ABC News, Trump is also facing condemnation in New York City with Mayor Bill de Blasio reviewing its contracts with Trump.

“Trump’s comments do not represent the values of inclusion and openness that define us as New Yorkers. Our Mexican brothers and sisters make up an essential part of this city’s vibrant and diverse community, and we will continue to celebrate and support New Yorkers of every background,” de Blasio said in a statement.

Trump soaring high in polls

Scott Walker is number one seen as favorable among the Iowa republican caucus. Trump tied in second place for Ben Carson at ten percent each, according to Quinnipiac University survey released Wednesday. Rand Paul and Ted Cruz come in third place at 9 percent each. Jeb Bush comes next at 8 percent, followed by Marco Rubio at 7 percent and then Mike Huckabee at 5 percent.

Trump is also second to Bush as candidates that would most likely receive support for the Republican nomination for president in 2016, according to CNN-ORC poll released on Wednesday. Nineteen percent of those who were polled would likely support Bush. Trump was never far at 12 percent.

In New Hampshire, Trump was seen as favorable by 38 percent of republican primary voters, according to a CNN-MUR poll released last week. Eleven percent of those who were polled perceived him as neither favorable nor unfavorable. Although 48 percent deemed him unfavorable, he still lands second to Bush among the Republican candidates.

    When it comes to the facts that potential
    Presidential candidate Donald Trump initiated in his first address about rapes,
    here is just an inkling of the truth? Unfortunately in the gloomy corridors of
    Congress, nobody wants to talk about the truth as they remain dormant in
    telling the truth, as many are scared for their lucrative jobs in the wealthy
    donor world. They would be caste out of certain committees and replaced by
    pro-illegal immigration politicians or repudiated in the hierarchy as
    Democratic Senator Hillary Clinton, Republican majority Speaker of the
    House John Boehner, Senator Harry Reid, Senate
    Majority Leader Mitch McConnell
    and the list goes on. They have all failed the American people by selling their
    favors to big business. Donald Trump will not sell the American people out; he
    has already spoken out about terrible foreign policy that King Obama has failed
    to adopt.

    will renegotiate all the devastating free trade agreement, which have been
    one-sided for America but very
    favorable for countries as China, Mexico and now the Pacific Rim nations. There
    are many other problems scalding our economy, but the most acidic issue that is
    free flowing thanks to the Obama Administration is illegal alien amnesty.
    Donald Trump may not have the slippery lying voice of Congress, but he makes up
    with his pledges, to renew America from the clutches
    of a downward slide into a Marxist-socialist style world, where a bloated
    government owns us. He is rough in his speech and doesn’t have the veneer of smooth talking
    puppets of corporate lobbyists. They pledge so much to the American people, but
    most of it is rhetoric. The difference of real estate businessman Donald Trump,
    he doesn’t need the money to succeed, unlike the majority of the other
    Presidential candidates. The special Interest owns the airwaves, television
    stations, the press—but they don’t own the peoples voice.

    There is a lost attitude
    amongst the people of the United States, that certain politicians count on?

    Its no surprise that the media and the politicians;
    puppets of special interests, pro-illegal alien organizations will release
    little statistics of the illegal immigration invasion. In North Carolina statistics indicate there were 78 confirmed and probable illegal aliens representing 418 charges of
    rape against NC children, in just one month! All of these
    individuals have a court date scheduled for, or were arrested for, child rape
    in August. This is the tenth month in a row we have been tracking child rape
    cases in NC. We are approaching 3,000 charges of sex crimes against NC’s
    children in 10 short months, according to the North Carolinian’s for Immigration Reform and Enforcement. Check their website at
    I have taken the liberty of copying the statistics, because these facts bear
    out what Mr. Donald Trump has to state in his opening commencement speech for
    his presidential run.

    March 2013- March 2015, there were 5675 child rapes in North Carolina. Child rape in NC has become an epidemic. Since November 2013, NCFIRE has been
    documenting (monthly) the confirmed and highly probable illegal aliens, who
    were charged with, and/or had a court date for, child rape, child molestations,
    sexual assaults and/or indecent liberties w/ a child. Many of the individuals
    had numerous charges against them meaning, they raped more than one child or
    raped a single child numerous times.

    A report
    issued in March of 2014, The Fiscal Burden of Illegal Immigration on North Carolinians, estimates that about 410,000
    illegal aliens resided in the state as of 2013 . In addition, there were about
    120,000 anchor babies (U.S. born children of illegal aliens)
    living in North Carolina who, like other U.S.-born children, may participate
    in means-tested programs and benefits. These children are U.S. citizens due to the current
    mis-interpretation of the 14thamendment to the US constitution. They would not being North Carolina if their

    Parents had
    not violated U.S. immigration laws.

    Among the
    reports key findings:

    for an estimated 32,400 illegal alien students and 80,000 U.S.-born children of
    illegal aliens, many of whom also required special English-language instruction,
    costs North Carolina taxpayers nearly $1.3 billion annually. • Medicaid and uncompensated health care for
    illegal Aliens and their U.S.-born children costs North Carolinians $323 million a year. • Law
    enforcement and criminal justice costs associated with illegal immigration add
    about $216 million a year to the state’s tab. Means-tested social welfare
    services used by U.S.-born children of illegal aliens add $79 million in costs
    each year • Providing basic government services to
    illegal alien costs North Carolina taxpayers about $212 million annually. • Illegal aliens pay about $293 million per
    year in taxes collected by state and local jurisdictions however, that does not
    offset the outlay resulting in a net annual loss to NC taxpayers of $1.73
    billion dollars.

    Child rape
    cases in Durham (a self-proclaimed sanctuary city) were up 40% in 2013.
    Report.pdf ). We were not able to check every

    calendar, of every county in NC, every day, so the numbers are likely much
    higher? Sadly, NONE


    There is no
    way to effectively calculate the costs of illegal alien crime to NC citizens.
    How do you put a

    figure on someone who is killed by an illegal alien drunk driver? The DWI court
    cases, of suspected illegal aliens in NC, for 1 month (August 2013), equaled
    5,195. In June of 2012 the numbers were 4,583. That is thousands of chances per
    month for you or a loved one, to be killed by a suspected illegal alien drunk
    driver ever time you leave your house. (

    Too many to
    count from the list of information delivered from news sources by (Fairus)
    Federation for American Immigration Reform of vicious crimes. The aliens in
    these reports were all identified as being in the country illegally, and many
    of them had come into the hands of law enforcement agencies prior to the crime
    that is described below, but the alien was not deported or in some cases was
    deported but reentered the country. Click on the Fairus
    listed as a demonstration that better prevention of illegal immigration is a
    public safety issue even though these cases are not representative of the
    illegal alien population in general. These cases refer to crimes other than

     The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) estimates that
    immigrants (legal and illegal) comprise 20 percent of inmates in prisons and
    jails. The foreign-born are 15.4 percent of the nation’s adult population.
    However, DHS has not provided a detailed explanation of how the estimates were

     under contract to DHS in 2004, Fentress, Inc., reviewed
    8.1 million inmate records from state prison systems and 45 large county jails.
    They found that 22 percent of inmates were foreign-born. But the report did not
    cover all of the nation’s jails.

     The 287(g)
    program and related efforts have found high rates of illegal alien
    incarceration in some communities. But it is unclear if the communities are
    representative of the country:

    Maricopa County, Ariz.: 22 percent of felons are
    illegal aliens;

    Lake County, Ill.: 19 percent of jail inmates are
    illegal aliens;

    Collier County, Fla.: 20 to 22 percent of jail
    inmates and arrestees are illegal aliens;

    Weld County, Colo.: 12.8 to 15.2 percent of those
    jailed are illegal aliens.

     DHS states that it
    has identified 221,000 non-citizens in the nation’s jails. This equals 11 to 15
    percent of the jail population. Non-citizens comprise only 8.6 percent of the
    nation’s total adult population.

     The Federal Bureau of Prisons reports that
    26.4 percent of inmates in federal prisons are non-U.S. citizens. Non-citizens
    are 8.6 percent of the nation’s adult population. However, federal prisons are
    not representative of prisons generally or local jails.
