Donald Trump is threatening an online internet campaigner with a $25m lawsuit over a campaign to encourage Macy’s to drop Trump’s products from its shelves and his face from its advertising.
Angelo Carusone, who set up the ‘Dump Trump’ campaign last year, received a letter from Trump’s attorney warning of “a major, multimillion dollar lawsuit” unless Carusone stops attempting to “tortiously interfere with Mr Trump’s business and contractual relationships”.
Caursone said he received a letter from Trump’s attorney Alan Garten in early January, in reference to his “Urge Macy’s to Dump Trump” petition, which urges Macy’s to “sever ties” with Trump and has garnered hundreds of thousands of signatures.
“I am litigation counsel to Donald J Trump and hereby demand that you immediately cease your malicious efforts to tortiously interfere with Mr Trump’s business and contractual relationships,” Garten wrote. “Failing which we will have no choice but to commence a major, multi-million dollar lawsuit against you, your organisation and co-conspirators.” MORE
