He should also call those who had business dealings with American companies to quit too; and that should include his son Mokhzani's Kencana and Kamaladdin's Oil Tool.
What about those who drives American-made cars? Should they need to sell it and buy another?
What about those who works in Amex, CitiBank and other American and American-related investment banks and corporations?
What about those exporters selling their products to Americans? Should they stop trading? What will happen to our GDP? America is Malaysia's 2nd largest trading partners!
What about Khazanah's massive investments in American corporations and stocks?
And Khazanah's massive borrowings from Americans too!
What about our government's and GLCs borrowings from American banks and financial institutions? Don't pay the loans or pay back all the loans?

Excerpts from the Malaysiakini news report:
"I hope Starbucks and McDonald's employees will stop working there," he told a crowd of 500 people who held a noisy protest outside the National Mosque after Friday prayers.
"If you have the US dollar, please change to other currencies, or to our ringgit. When you stop using the US dollar its value will drop," Mahathir added.
"They will become a bankrupt country and will not be able to produce weapons for Israel."
Shouting "Long live Islam, long live Palestine, destroy Israel!" they said Malaysians should boycott Coca-Cola, Colgate and Starbucks.
Coca-Cola spoke out today against any boycott of its drinks and other US goods, saying it would only hurt the local economy and citizens.
"As everybody else, we are deeply touched by the human side of the situation in the Middle East," Kadri Taib, Coca-Cola Malaysia public affairs and communications director, said in a statement.
"Given the local nature of our business, we believe that calls for boycotts of our products are not the appropriate way to further any causes, as they primarily hurt the local economy, local businesses and local citizens."
It said the beverage company employs some 1,700 Malaysians, 60 percent of whom are Muslims.
Malaysia's economy is largely export driven and the United States is its second-largest trading partner after neighbouring Singapore.
