The list of major U.S. retailers that are dropping product lines associated with the Trump family continues to grow, according to a Business Insider report.
Sears and Kmart announced they have removed a total of 31 Trump Home Collection products from their respective websites.
The products being canceled include furniture, lighting, bedding, mirrors, and chandeliers—some from makers who supply items to Trump hotels, according to the collections’ website.
Reportedly, these products were not offered in stores.
On Saturday, Spokesman Brian Hanover claimed retailers made the decision in an effort to focus on more profitable items.
The Wall Street Journal reported on Saturday that Nordstrom’s sales of Ivanka Trump’s fashion line fell by nearly one-third in the past fiscal year, with sharp drops in the weeks preceding her father’s election on Nov. 8.
Shortly after Ivanka’s products had been pulled from shelves, Trump took to Twitter to defend his daughter.
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer characterized Nordstrom’s actions as a “direct attack” on Trump’s recent policies.
Sears released the following statement to Business Insider:
“As part of the company’s initiative to optimize its online product assortment, we constantly refine that assortment to focus on our most profitable items. Amid that streamlining effort, 31 Trump Home items were among the items removed online this week. Products from the line are still offered online via third-party Marketplace vendors.”
This marks the latest batch of retailers to sever ties with the Ivanka Trump’s brand, following Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Belk, Jet, ShopStyle, Home Shopping Network, T.J. Maxx, and Marshall’s, each of which opted to stop carrying the products, citing “declining sales.”
The retailers’ decisions coincide with mounting pressure by liberals to stop promoting and selling any merchandise relating to the Trump family name.
The #GrabYourWallet campaign, founded by Shannon Coulter, is specifically targeting merchandise associated with Donald and Ivanka Trump.
