Donald Trump in recent weeks has been fanning the flames of racism, xenophobia, and division at a time when this county needs more cooperation and collaboration between its people. This country will not offer creative solutions with the "birther rhethoric" that Trump has been supporting in recent weeks against President Obama.
In a recent interview on NBC Today Show, Donald Trump, the creator of "Celebrity Apprentice" said, “A certificate of live birth is not even signed by anybody. I saw his. I read it very carefully. It doesn’t have a serial number. It doesn’t have a signature.” He also claimed that the Kenyan step-grandmother of the President Obama observed his birth in Kenya. These statements have been proven bogus by the Hawaii state officials who have consistently stated that President Obama was born in Hawaii.
Donald is simplly aligning himself with the most outrageous and vociferous elements of Republican Party and Tea Party, so he can promote his own brand and increase the ratings on his TV show "Celebrity Apprentice". In the recent weeks, the ratings for program have skyrocketed with constant support of the "Birther Rhetoric" and the Tea Party Agenda. The sponsors of "The Celebrity Apprentice" are directly supporting the divisive rhetoric of Donald Trump and contributing toward the negative and hostile political climate in this country. The corporate sponsors of "Celebrity Apprentice" are Enterprise Rental Car Company, Clorox Bleach Company, Sprint-Nextel Cellphones, Bristol-Myers Squibb, and The Walt Disney Company, and Groupon.
Support for this petition lets the sponsors know that viewing public will not buy or support companies who are actively supporting the Donald Trump's "birther rhetoric" and "politics of fear" in this country.
The signers of this petition recommend that corporate sponsors of "Celebrity Apprentice should withdraw their commercial support from the Trump's program or demand that he apologize to American people for his foolish support of the "birther agenda" on the public airwaves.
It should be noted by petition signers that Groupon has publicly retracted its online advertising on "Celebrity Apprentice" as of 4-28-11. Please see the following link: http://www.groupon.com/blog/.
