Walmart boycott: Calls mount over 'Impeach Trump' items

Trump supporters boycott Walmart for selling 'Impeach 45' clothing Walmart

He asked the company about the baby clothes in a tweet: "What kind of message are you trying to send?"

The clothing items, featuring the slogan Impeach 45 logo and sold by third-party seller Old Glory, have since been removed from sale following the backlash.

The online site is selling t-shirts with "IMPEACH 45" emblazoned across the front in big capital letters - a call to bring down the 45th USA president, Donald Trump. One shirt mirrors an anti-Hillary shirt and says "I'm really Donald Trump, don't let this "human" costume fool you", and another reads "Trumpty Dumpty: We need a wall".

Other items echoing the anti-Trump sentiment were also available on the retail giant's website, including other T-shirts, coffee mugs and bumper stickers, made by several companies.

Last year, Walmart came under fire after a third-party seller offered T-shirts that suggested killing journalists.

Brazil v/s Mexico, Belgium v/s Japan- matches, schedule on July 2
Brazil play their first Round of 16 match as one the favorites to hoist the trophy in Russian Federation . The national teams of Belgium and Japan played last time in 2002, the game ended in a draw 2-2.

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.

As some noted, though, the choice of items on Walmart's website doesn't betray any clear political bias; the retailer sells plenty of pro-Trump merchandise and it sells merchandise that opposes Hillary Clinton, as well.

Angry Trump supporters threatened to boycott Walmart over the clothing range. It appears that Walmart has now taken down the listing for the shirt, caving in to the pressure.

Walmart has not commented on the merchandise.
