Scott Baio is Boycotting Nordstrom in Ivanka Trump Protest

Shannon Coulter, the co-founder of the Grab Your Wallet anti-Trump group, tweeted a screenshot of Burlington's website showing zero search listings found for Ivanka's products.

Significant store chains such as Sears and Kmart stopped selling Trump-branded products on the Internet in the midst of an uncertainty that keeps USA companies looking forward to the economic future of this country.

The weekend witnessed a storm of comments among Trump's supporters and those who oppose him; some considered that stores have taken a political position, because unlike the stores' allegations, Ivanka's products have always been lucrative.

Earlier this month, Nordstrom said it would stop carrying Ivanka Trump's apparel because of falling sales, pushing President Donald Trump to defend his daughter on Twitter by saying she was treated "unfairly" by the retailer. It seems that more retailers are more concerned with a public perception that selling Trump products is a de facto endorsement of the president's policies and ideology. The retailer is still selling Ivanka Trump's clothing line.

The decision of Sears Holdings Inc. comes after reports that it had stopped selling 31 products branded by the Trump family online.

For years, Ivanka Trump has enjoyed the benefits of being a Trump while also keeping a distance from her father's realm.

The question I have in this historically divided, superheated environment is this: Does retail have a place in politics, or should it? According to the Wall Street Journal, sales of the brand in Nordstrom stores fell 32 percent in 2016. Ivanka Trump told the industry site footwearnews.com that the retailer was not living up to its end of the contract and the parting was mutual.

Macy's was ahead of the curve on this, pulling Trump's menswear line in 2015 after controversial remarks he made about Mexican immigrants.

Is this exodus from Trump about the customers or the integrity of the brand?
