Boycott alert: Walmart sells "Impeach 45" t-shirts

Outcry after

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

Walmart's facing backlash after "Impeach 45" and "Impeach Trump" apparel in all shapes and sizes - from infants to adults - surfaced on their website.

US retailer Walmart Inc (WMT.N) faced an outcry from supporters of President Donald Trump on Tuesday for listing for sale on its open marketplace clothing with the slogan "Impeach 45", an apparent reference to Trump, the country's 45th president.

Ryan Fournier, chairman of the organization Students For Trump, brought the products to public attention with a tweet Tuesday evening. Walmart also sold clothing and paraphernalia promoting the impeachment of former President Barack Obama.

Sweden made only one change to their team as Gustav Svensson came in for Sebastian Larsson, who is also serving a one-match ban. The referee initially awarded a penalty kick but later gave a free kick on the edge of the area after a video review.

News of the shirt prompted a #BoycottWalmart movement on Twitter and social media, with a large number of supporters jumping in. "So I searched myself", another user wrote. Walmart didn't immediately respond to CNBC's request for comment.

Old Glory is the company that sells the "Impeach 45" apparel and it's not the only one. In November 2017, the company stopped selling a shirt that read "Rope. Tree. Journalist. SOME ASSEMBLY REQUIRED" was listed on its website through an outside company. While the Centerbrook, Connecticut-based company sells hundreds of shirts, hats, underwear and Halloween costumes via Walmart, it also runs its own website and sells similar merchandise on Amazon.

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.
