Walmart's 'Impeach 45' Apparel Draws Swift Outrage

Adjust Comment Print

Walmart customers who support President Donald Trump slammed the retailer for selling items that read "Impeach 45" and "Impeach Trump" produced by third-party companies.

"Impeach 45" was printed on T-shirts and infant onesies manufactured by apparel company Old Glory and posted to the Walmart site. Walmart has apparently responded to the outrage by taking down any clothing or paraphernalia related to the impeachment of Trump or Obama.

Walmart's Marketplace has given the company headaches over which items to permit.

Merkel Accepts Migrant Deal Under Threat of Conservative Allies
As the CDU and CSU parties hunkered down in Berlin and Munich, leaders on both sides sought to clarify what was a stake. Ahead of a hard Bavarian state election in October, the CSU is determined to show that it is tough on migration.

But the accusations miss a crucial fact about how Walmart runs its website, or more specifically, its third-party marketplace, where the items appeared.

However, the Walmart-owned website Jet.com still sells a variety of items under the more lighthearted "Impeach the Peach" logo that features a likeness of the United States president on travel kits, guitar picks and other items.

This isn't the first time Walmart has attracted criticism for shirts sold through its marketplace. The number refers to President Donald Trump, who is the 45th president.

Fortune credits Ryan Fournier, chairman of Students for Trump, with the discovery of the t-shirts for sale and the call for a boycott that followed.

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. Other impeach Trump items were also available via Walmart.com, as were items bearing the president's signature "Make America Great Again" slogan.

A Walmart spokeswoman did not return a request for comment. "Tree. Journalist. SOME ASSEMBLY REQUIRED" was listed on its website through an outside company.
