Trump Supporters Are Rolling Back Their Support Of Walmart Over T-Shirts
Walmart went out and pissed off their core fanbase. For a short time on Tuesday, Walmart was selling clothes with “Impeach 45” on them.
.@walmart why are you selling Impeach 45 baby clothes on your website?????
What kind of message are you trying to send? https://t.co/PwI4nCVAZx

I think the message is clear, Ryan.
Shortly after Trump supporters got wind of this news, they followed in the footsteps of the President and started to rant. #BoycottWalmart soon began trending on Twitter.
#BoycottWalmart for a month. Let them pay for a very bad decision.

I've not spent a single dollar in Wal-Mart since October 2011, proud to say I plan to go another 7 years, at least. #BoycottWalmart #TrumpDerangementSyndrome #LiberalismIsAMentalDisease #MAGA #WalkAway

A lot of people were excited that Walmart would be a bit cleaner.

Some were more focused on the real issues that Walmart should be boycotted for.
Trump supporters turn a blind eye to children being put in cages, elementary schools getting shot up, and Medicaid being cut from the elderly, but a jersey from Walmart is where they draw the line??
Give me a break. #BoycottWalmart

Walmart exploits its workers for minimum wage with little or no health care. It requests tax breaks from city municipalities why destroying local mom and pop stores, then raises the prices after its competition has gone out of business. We should all #BoycottWalmart.

I saw #BoycottWalmart and thought it's because their employees don't make enough money to live and have to get public assistance or because of their union busting tactics – or the fact they force employees to work on Thanksgiving.
Nope. Trump supporters are upset over a jersey

Of course, this whole thing was just one big mistake. But shhhh. Don’t tell anyone
These items were sold by third-party sellers on our open marketplace and were not offered directly by Walmart. We’re removing these types of items pending review of our marketplace policies.
