Nordstrom Caves to Protestors, Cancels Ivanka Trump Line
This makes me very angry.
Ivanka Trump is a brilliant business person and by all accounts a great human being.
She has her own very successful fashion line, which used to be featured in Nordstrom, among many other locations.
Now, because of some protestors, Nordstrom appears to have cut all ties with Ivanka and her line.
Details from the DailyMail:
Ivanka Trump’s fashion brand has been dropped by major retailer Nordstrom following an online boycott started in response to her father’s election victory.
The first daughter was pictured leaving her new DC home on Thursday as husband Jared Kushner was photographed meeting and greeting Queen Rania of Jordan at the National Prayer Breakfast.
Nordstrom denied partisanship in the decision to drop Trump’s brand, insisting the move was made as a result of poor sales months after it was hit by a grassroots boycott started by a marketing specialist and a grandmother.
The Grab Your Wallet campaign was launched on October 11 by Shannon Coulter and Sue Atencio after they ‘simultaneously realized they could no longer in good conscience shop at retailers that do business with the Trump family’.
The campaign compiled a list of businesses that sell Trump family goods. The extensive list also includes companies that advertise on Celebrity Apprentice or executives that have raised money for President Donald Trump.
The campaign name was direct reference to the president’s infamous ‘grab them by the p***y’ remark from 2005 a leaked audio tape that led to numerous allegations of sexual assault.
In November, Nordstrom responded to a shopper’s letter calling for the company to stop selling the brand, tweeting: ‘We hope that offering a vendor’s products isn’t misunderstood as us taking a political position; we’re not.’
