- •UnivisionIn case any Trump supporters regularly watch Univision, they should not do so, thanks to his dispute with them over his comments about immigrants at his campaign announcement.
- •Macy'sAfter the retailer ended its relationship with Trump for the same reason, Trump unleashed a slew of calls to boycott the company.
- •Fox News (for a bit)Trump retweeted someone praising a boycott of Fox News during one of his many feuds with the media giant. This one is probably not in effect at the moment, but who knows.
- •MexicoSorry, Mexico! Trump's beef with Mexico stems primarily from his having been unable to collect a legal settlement in the country, but the call for a boycott was ostensibly pegged to the arrest of Marine sergeant Andrew Thamooressi for crossing the border while armed. He has been released. But the boycott is still on, as Trump said in July.
- •ItalyTrump called for a boycott of Italy if Amanda Knox wasn't freed. She was, making this boycott short.
