An anti-Trump movement is calling for the boycott of these retailers

  • More than two years into Donald Trump's presidency, the movement to boycott retailers that do business with the president's family is going strong.
  • On Tuesday, Ivanka Trump announced she would be closing her fashion brand to focus on her career in Washington. As a result, all the companies that sell her products were removed from the boycott list. 
  • A note has been added to the boycott list to remind consumers that while these companies have been dropped from the list, they failed to do so before Ivanka Trump's announcement. 
  • Before the announcement, Canadian department store Hudson's Bay was the latest retailer to drop her band.

The boycott-Trump movement is still going strong, but it is getting smaller. 

On Tuesday, companies that do business with Ivanka Trump were removed from the #GrabYourWallet boycott list after the first daughter announced she would be closing her namesake brand

"After 17 months in Washington, I do not know when or if I will ever return to the business, but I do know that my focus for the foreseeable future will be the work I am doing here in Washington," Trump said in a statement on Tuesday. "So making this decision now is the only fair outcome for my team and partners."

The company had been the target of a campaign launched in October 2016 by Shannon Coulter, a brand and digital strategist, under the #GrabYourWallet hashtag. Coulter encouraged people seeking a way to take concrete action against President Donald Trump to boycott companies — large and small — that do business with his family.

Coulter has removed any companies that stocked Ivanka Trump products from her boycott list but left a note to remind consumers that these companies failed to drop the brand prior to Trump's announcement that she would be closing the business.

Ivanka Trump's line of clothing, shoes, and accessories will continue to be manufactured and sold by the company's licensing partners, a representative for the brand said Tuesday. That means shoppers will continue to be able to purchase Ivanka Trump products at retailers including Lord & Taylor, Dillards, Bloomingdales, Zappos, and Amazon, among others, for at least the next few months.

Over the past two years, Coulter has remained steadfast in her quest to encourage the other 62 retailers, nonprofits, and even a movie produced by Harvey Weinstein to ditch Trump products. 

Four retailers remain on the list and continue to be boycotted for selling Trump products. The remaining companies have been removed:

Amazon and Whole Foods

The e-commerce giant carries both Donald Trump and Ivanka Trump merchandise, from the book "The Art of the Deal" to Ivanka Trump's shoe line. Whole Foods was added to the boycott list after being acquired by Amazon in 2017.

For what it's worth, some Trump supporters on Reddit have also called for a boycott of Amazon because CEO Jeff Bezos said he wants to send Trump to space. Bezos has also said the president "erodes our democracy around the edges."

Amazon will continue to sell Ivanka Trump's shoes and handbags for at least the next few months under a current licensing deal.
