After Nordstrom Drops Her Brand, Ivanka Trump is Hit With More Bad News

Ivanka Trump has worn many hats during her young life. From wife and mother to corporate executive and aspiring fashion icon, the First Daughter certainly has her hands full. However, it sounds like she may have some more free time on her hands to focus on other endeavors, as the whole fashion icon thing doesn’t appear to be working out too well.

As the Daily Mail reports, TJ Maxx and Marshalls are the latest retailers to remove Ivanka’s products from the shelves. They are both owned by the same parent company, TJX Companies, and a recently leaked memo reveals that they simply wanted the product line out ASAP.

“Effective immediately, please remove all Ivanka Trump merchandise from features and mix into [other products on the racks. All Ivanka Trump signs should be discarded,” the memo read in part.

This follows the well-publicized decision by chains such as Nordstrom’s and Neiman Marcus to cut ties with Ivanka, and that has President Donald Trump crying foul. He feels the decisions are of a political nature, and he took to his favorite medium to express his angst.

“My daughter Ivanka has been treated so unfairly by Nordstrom. She is a great person - always pushing me to do the right thing! Terrible!” Trump wrote on social media.

Nordstrom’s claims that its decision was strictly related to declining sales, but the curious timing of its decision does open up some questions. Back in October, a campaign known as #GrabYourWallet was organized to boycott Trump-related products, so it’s certainly possible some retailers have been responding to concerns expressed by boycotters.

That being said, if Ivanka’s products were flying off of the shelves, there’s a good chance those concerns would have been disregarded. A popular product that just happens to be a little controversial can be a boon to the bottom line, so perhaps this is just a case of Ivanka’s products being ‘terrible.’
