Following US President Donald Trump’s recent ban on immigration, individual and business dissidents of his policies have started boycotting doing business with the Trump family and calling on others to do the same, Business Insider reports.
The anti-Trump boycott was launched by Shannon Coulter, and Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, appears most hit. Here is a list of seven organizations that have cut ties with the Trump family, while the list continues to grow by the day:
- Uber: CEO of ride-sharing company, Uber, Travis Kalanick, has resigned from President Trump’s economic advisory board on Thursday after an international pressure against the company. Kalanick said he called President Trump to tell him he was stepping down since the international community has misinterpreted his business as profiting from the president’s political agenda.
- Nordstrom: This fashion outlet has declined to sell Ivanka Trump’s fashion brand due to declining sales, but it is also on record that a shopper wrote an open letter to Nordstrom to boycott selling Ivanka’s “toxic” products. It is now apparent that the fashion retailer is bowing to customers’ demands to boycott Ivanka’s brand as a result of her father’s policies.
- Macy’s: Macy’s decided to stop stocking Trump’s menswear products such as ties, suits, and other accessories when the president during campaigns in 2015 referred to immigrants from Mexico as “rapists, criminals, and drug lords.” CEO of Macy’s, Terry Lundgren, had then responded that “In light of statements made by Donald Trump, we have decided to discontinue our business relationship.” But the retailer still sells Ivanka’s women clothing.
- Shoes.com: After it became apparent last November that Trump was winning the presidency, Canadian online store announced that it would stop stocking Ivanka’s shoe line because they were not selling so well and because customers had demanded for a boycott. “We have removed the products from our website,” Shoes.com had tweeted.
- Neiman Marcus: As at Wednesday, there were as many as 15 Ivanka’s jewelry products listed on Neiman Marcus’s website, but by Friday they were all gone and untraceable. The online retailer would not speak on why the president’s daughter’s products have disappeared.
- Wayfair: A seller of home décor and furniture, Wayfair ditched buying and selling home decorations and furniture products from Trump Home line without any explanations last November, and up till now would not respond to comments on the development.
- Bellacor: Bellacor is a home furnishings company that ditched stocking Trump’s home brands in November, and as at today no single Trump products could be found on its website. The company would not also comment on the issue, even though a customer reported she got an email from the company informing her of its decision to boycott Trump’s products.
