Nordstrom appears to have caved to anti-Trumpers who pressured the brand to disassociate itself from Ivanka Trump’s clothing line.
The department store removed Ivanka’s brand from its website and announced the move in a statement on Thursday.
“We’ve said all along we make buying decisions based on performance,” it said. “In this case, based on the brand’s performance, we’ve decided not to buy it for this season,” referring to the spring.
But Trump supporters weren’t exactly buying the retail chain’s explanation.

Meanwhile, the move was met with jubilation from those who supported the #GrabYourWallet campaign to inflict damage on Trump brands by boycotting the stores that carry them.

But as Nordstrom may see an increase in sales from the $GrabYourWallet crowd, they face growing backlash from Trump supporters who aren’t happy with the announcement.

We will boycott Nordstrom!
