Donald Trump Threatens To Sue Organizer Of Campaign For Macy's To Drop Him

Donald Trump says he's might sue the man who launched an online petition drive that calls for Macy's to stop selling his branded items.
Trump's attorney, Alan Garten, has sent a letter to Angelo Carusone, who launched an online petition urging Macy's to drop Trump, saying that Trump will sue Carusone for damages "not less than $25,000,000" if he continues his campaign. "While you claim to be merely exercising or right to free speech, your egregious, pre-meditated and illegal conduct far exceeds anything protected by the Constitution," the letter, dated Dec. 27, reads. "Rather than simply engage in lawful protest, you have apparently made it your mission to interfere with and intentionally disrupt Mr. Trump's longstanding and well-established business relationship with Macy's as well as his contractual dealings with other third parties through mob-like bullying and coercion."
Carusone: "Donald Trump's attempt to silence me will not work. I've dealt with enough bullies and know better than to succumb to intimidation."  Carusone formerly ran the "Stop Beck" campaign which called on advertisers to abandon Glenn Beck's show when it was on Fox News.
