Women are not lining up in droves to buy Trump Brand Beauty Care products – spray net, hair gel, QT Quik Tan, hair color, hair growth hormones, blow driers, spray tan, ManTan, OrangeAide and dietetic Crazy Cheetos. Many of these fine foreign made products have been marked down drastically – and may soon be collectors items. Act while supplies last !
When a company stops carrying a Trump beauty product (all of which are manufactured overseas) they say that “sales were off” so they drop it – which, of course, is the point of the boycott . . .
Nordstrom will stop selling Ivanka Trump’s name-branded line of clothing and shoes, a company representative said Thursday.
The change followed a weeks-long boycott campaign, organized by an anti-Trump activist group called “Grab Your Wallet.” The group demanded the department-store giant cease doing business with the president or his family.
In a statement, the Nordstrom representative said that Ivanka Trump products were being dropped because of poor sales. Its statement did not mention the group’s boycott effort.
“Each year we cut about 10% [of brands] and refresh our assortment with about the same amount,” the statement said. “In this case, based on the brand’s performance we’ve decided not to buy it for this season.”
The retailer has some Ivanka Trump items in stock, a representative said, and will unload that remaining inventory at a discount, then dump the rest at the outlet malls.
Shannon Coulter, who helps run Grab Your Wallet, said that number is down sharply from early December, when Nordstrom had 71 Ivanka Trump items for sale.
She celebrated Nordstrom’s decision as a milestone for the campaign, which began in October after The Washington Post obtained a video from 2005 that showed Donald Trump bragging about groping women during a taping of “Access Hollywood.” In that video, Trump boasted that he could “grab them by the p—y,” using a vulgar term for a woman’s genitals.
Four days after The Post’s story, on Oct. 11, Coulter posted a message on Twitter criticizing Nordstrom for doing business with Ivanka Trump. She said the retailer should dissociate itself from her because she had continued to campaign for her father in the aftermath of the tape’s release.
Weeks later, Nordstrom had remained a focus of the boycott group’s effort. On Thursday, in fact, her group had asked its followers to call the retail giant’s headquarters in large numbers.
“The cause and effect here is very clear,” Coulter wrote in an email message Thursday evening after Nordstrom announced its decision. “Over 230,000 Tweets and who knows how many millions of dollars’ worth of missed purchases later, they finally heard us.”
