All the Retailers Who've Dropped Ivanka Trump's Line

Ivanka Trump founded her fashion brand in 2007. Trump's web of worldwide companies remains a bit opaque since he has refused to release his tax returns, which experts have said would provide a clearer view of his business interests.

Following the disappearance of Trump merchandise from Belk's website, a shopper named Anna May Smith said she intends to "cut up" her Belk credit card.

"Effective immediately, please remove all Ivanka Trump merchandise from features and mix into the runs", read a note to workers obtained by The New York Times.

Again taking to Twitter to bash a business, President Trump attacked the Nordstrom department store chain Wednesday for dropping daughter Ivanka's fashion line, drawing criticism for mixing government and his family's business interests.

The tweet reignited the debate over whether his position of power is used to favourably sway business interests for himself and his family, signifying a conflict of interest. The reasons weren't political, the Seattle-based department store said in a press release.

Mr. Trump criticized the retailer on Wednesday morning, accusing it of treating his daughter, Ivanka, "so unfairly".

When asked why Nordstrom's decision would be an attack on the President's daughter after she supposedly removed herself from her company, Spicer said that the attack affects Ivanka Trump because the brand still bears her name. A number of companies, including Boeing, Carrier and even Amazon have suffered the same result after Donald Trump took to social media to complain about their business models or product prices.

After Trump won the presidency, Macy's CEO Terry Lundgren said the company would continue to stand behind its decision.

He then retweeted his dressing down of Nordstrom using the official POTUS account.

Ivanka Trump's brand is reiterating its growth ambitions after Nordstrom Inc. stopped carrying many of her products, a move that inspired a rebuke from the president.

Earlier this week, First Lady Melania Trump came under fire after she re-filed a lawsuit against the Daily Mail over false allegations that she once worked as an escort.
