Ivanka Trump Hit With Even More Bad News Regarding Her Clothing Line (Photos)

The chain department stores TJ Maxx and Marshalls, both owned by the TJX Companies, Inc., are joining the ban on Ivanka Trump’s clothing line. An email allegedly from headquarters to the stores was leaked, and employees say they’ve never seen anything like what is going on with the First Daughter’s brand. This news comes on the heels of reports that Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom have, effective immediately, discontinued the brand.

The New York Times printed a note they claim was obtained from the company to individual stores. It read: “Effective immediately, please remove all Ivanka Trump merchandise from features and mix into [other products on the racks]... All Ivanka Trump signs should be discarded.”

Sure enough, the signs advertising Ms. Trump’s fashion line have been spotted in the dumpsters, which indicates that the stores have no intentions of ever featuring her clothing line again. Moving all the remaining stock onto clearance racks mixed with other brands (including generic brands) gives them the opportunity to sell the merchandise without having to take a loss on the inventory. By slipping it in with the clutter, it’ll get less attention and go unnoticed by those boycotting the brand for political reasons.

The #GrabYourWallet boycott is an anti-Trump campaign that seeks to boycott any company President Donald Trump or his family are involved in, including book store chains that sell his books. It also urges boycotts against companies in which his cabinet members have interests. Finally, it calls for boycotts of any company associated with someone who supported Mr. Trump for President.

Companies that have been jumping on the ‘Dump Ivanka Trump’ bandwagon insist that it’s all just a coincidence that they discontinued the brand at the same politically heated time as other companies, while they all just happen to be targets of boycotts. Nordstrom put out a statement that the decision wasn’t political, or out of fear of losing customers; the brand simply wasn’t selling, so they dropped it. The TJX company is also downplaying the move.

“We aim to offer a merchandise mix that gives our customers a choice in what they may want to purchase,” said Doreen Thompson, a spokesperson for the company, to Racked.

Thompson said ‘at this time’ the company can’t say whether they’ll continue offering the brand, or stop once stock sells out.

Few actually believe the removal of Trump’s lines are not politically motivated, or a reaction to political movements. President Donald Trump can’t say much, or he risks being accused of a conflict of interests; however did tweet last week that his daughter is ‘being treated so unfairly.’ It’s unlikely his feelings have changed.
