‘Impeach 45' apparel at Walmart sparks calls for boycott

Outcry after Trump supporters boycott Walmart for selling 'Impeach 45' clothing | TheHill

Walmart has caught the ire of Trump supporters online for selling some very anti-Trump apparel. "We are an American company and we are proud to be American, and this is what we do: We sell T-shirts for a living".

The shirts that come in several shades - plus similar baby onesies and even frisbees - have the Twitter-sphere in a frenzy and spurred a grassroots call to boycott the world's biggest retailer.

The line of apparel also sells on Amazon.com and through Old Glory's own website.

Trump supporters voiced their outrage to Walmart's "Impeach 45" clothing by calling for a boycott of the company. (The "45" is a reference to Donald Trump's status as 45th president of the United States.) "What kind of message are you trying to send?"

England knocks out Colombia on penalties to reach the quarterfinals
The center back was among the 21 players practicing in light rain on Saturday at England's training base just outside St. England definitely has the offensive edge in this game, but Colombia can neutralize it if they can shut down Kane.

Ryan Fournier, chairman of the group Students for Trump, was one of the first to discover Walmart was selling the clothing item, according to the International Business Times. The company also sells a wide range of pro-Trump merchandise, including a substantial number of "Make America Great Again" hats.

The Washington Times reached out to Walmart Tuesday afternoon asking if the products were pulled in response to the social media pressure.

The shirt wasn't made by Walmart. "We removed it as soon as it was brought to our attention, and are conducting a thorough review of the seller's assortment". A quick search of their Twitter account does not show any tweets about it.
