Trump supporters boycott Walmart for selling 'Impeach 45' clothing

Impeach Trump

The online site is selling t-shirts with "IMPEACH 45" emblazoned across the front in big capital letters - a call to bring down the 45th US president, Donald Trump.

The "Impeach 45" clothing was still available on Walmart's website as of Tuesday morning.

Items both for and against President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are also for sale.

Some red, white and blue apparel offered on Walmart Inc.'s website from third-party sellers this holiday week may have American shoppers feeling a little less than united.

The hashtag #BoycottWalmart began trending on Twitter Tuesday afternoon as the retail giant came under fire for having clothing with the phrase "Impeach 45" on its website.

This isn't the first time Walmart has encountered backlash for selling political items.

Tesla finally hits weekly production target for Model 3 cars
The 5,000th vehicle rolled off the assembly line at 5 a.m. on Sunday, five hours after Tesla's self-imposed deadline. Mr Musk has said that the Model 3 is the "best auto for its cost, either electric or gasoline".

Students for Trump chairman Ryan Fournier first tweeted about the anti-Trump merchandise on Monday. The number refers to President Donald Trump, who is the 45th president.

Walmart pulled the shirt - as well as other products with the same message - from its website, but not until some of the president's fans threw a fit.

Walmart, not long ago, was in trouble with liberals as well for a shirt it soldthat read "Rope". But once they're approved-a process that takes a few weeks-Walmart doesn't watch every item put up for sale.

Trump supporters are free to boycott, of course, but as Fox News noted, there are also plenty of items on Walmart's marketplace with Trump's slogan, "Make America great again".

A Walmart spokeswoman did not return a request for comment. Fournier wrote in a tweet directed at Walmart. "Tree. Journalist. SOME ASSEMBLY REQUIRED." that was being sold from its online store a year ago.
