After it was discovered Monday that the superstore was selling anti-Trump “Impeach 45” apparel on its website. Walmart has found itself on the receiving end of a surge of fury.
The uproar generated a #BoycottWalmart trend on Twitter. Users expressed their disgust for the chain promoting the impeachment of President Trump.
Chairman of the group Students for Trump, Ryan Fournier, was one of the first to discover Walmart was selling the clothing item. He tweeted:
.@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

Old Glory is the company that sells the “Impeach 45” apparel and it’s not the only one.
A search on Walmart.com revealed three other companies selling Trump impeachment merchandise.
Also, a search for “Make America Great Again” apparel produced plenty of hats, T-shirts and coffee mugs.
This is not the first time Walmart has caused a stir.
The store came under scrutiny in November after a shirt design that read “Rope. Tree. Journalist. SOME ASSEMBLY REQUIRED” was listed on its website through an outside company.
Teespring had their shirts pulled off the Walmart website a few days later.
It appears that after the Twitter Storm, Walmart pulled the “Impeach 45” shirts and the ‘LA Imprints’ T-Shirt but AMAZON is going in full force.
I find this very distasteful. I won’t shop on Amazon until this is taken off the shelves. What will you do?
