'Impeach 45' apparel leads to Walmart boycott threats

The availability of the apparel sparked a "boycott Walmart" campaign in support of Trump.

This appears to be a partisan move for a company that has been working hard to cater to the heartland, where many Trump supporters live, and urban centers, which tend to be more Democratic.

CBS News reports one person pointed out the company also sold clothing from various vendors for people who opposed former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Trump's opponent in the 2016 presidential election, as well as for people who oppose former president Barack Obama.

By Tuesday afternoon, the "Impeach 45" products had been taken off of Walmart's website. Fournier is quite active on Twitter.

The shirts, seemingly discovered by the chairman of the group Students for Trump, are one of a number of "Impeach 45" offerings, which range from sweatshirts to baby clothes from a wide variety of manufacturers.

Walmart's "Impeach 45" apparel causes stir on social media.

On June 27, Walmart announced that it was introducing a 3D virtual shopping tour on its website, as the retailer pours billions of dollars into beefing up its e-commerce business. "We removed it as soon as it was brought to our attention, and are conducting a thorough review of the seller's assortment". Such sellers can sign up to advertise products on Walmart's website, and the retail giant gets a commission on each sale. A quick search of their Twitter account does not show any tweets about it.

Walmart sells a myriad of "Make America Great Again" items, such as hats, T-shirts and coffee mugs. In the meantime, there are plenty of other sites online to purchase a t-shirt with the same message.
