Kmart and Sears have joined the parade of retailers and celebrities cutting their ties with the Trump family brand in recent weeks.

Business Insider reported that the two companies are no longer offering items from the Trump Home collection on their websites.

“As part of the company’s initiative to optimize its online product assortment, we constantly refine that assortment to focus on our most profitable items,” a Sears Holdings spokesperson said to Business Insider. “Amid that streamlining effort, 31 Trump Home items were among the items removed online this week. Products from the line are still offered online via third-party Marketplace vendors.”

Shannon Coulter — a co-founder of the #GrabYourWallet movement to boycott Trump’s companies — said on Friday that early in the week, Sears and Kmart were offering Trump Home products, but now they have disappeared from the companies’ websites.

“Brand new. On 2/7, Sears still had 19 Trump products. Note: it may still carry in brick and mortar locations. Will see if stmt. forthcoming,” Coulter wrote on Twitter.

Business Insider said that neither company ever carried Trump Home items in their brick and mortar stores.

Retail companies have been distancing themselves from Trump family companies over the last few weeks. Nordstrom decided against carrying Ivanka Trump’s fashion line in 2017, but the decision, the company said, was based on sales, which fell sharply in the fourth quarter.

Pres. Trump attacked Nordstrom on Twitter for dropping the collection and senior White House aide Kellyanne Conway stepped into murky ethical territory by urging people to “buy Ivanka’s stuff” in a TV interview.

Amazon.com still offers a few Trump Home items, including an oversized cotton throw in “snow white” for $33.99.

Published

Critics of President Donald Trump — from liberals and progressives to right-wing Never Trump conservatives — are slamming Republicans in Congress who refuse to publicly acknowledge Joe Biden as president-elect or speak out against Trump's election-related lawsuits. But New York Times reporters Peter Baker and Kathleen Gray, in an article published on November 28, emphasize that in key battleground states, some of the people who have refused to indulge Team Trump's legal challenges and bogus election fraud claims are Republicans.

Trump’s team files fifth demand for Georgia to audit their ballot signatures as their campaign to overturn the election fizzles

Published

President Donald Trump's campaign has filed its fifth demand for the state of Georgia to audit the signatures on ballots.

The statement from the Trump team said that the "Georgia secretary of state should perform an immediate audit of the signatures on all absentee ballot applications and absentee ballot envelopes received for the Nov. 3 General Election. The Trump Campaign estimates that between 38,250 and 45,626 illegal votes from absentee ballots alone were cast in the state of Georgia -- far beyond the Biden-Harris ticket's current margin of 12,670 votes."

Supreme Court hearing gets awkward as conservative Alito runs roughshod over chief justice Roberts

Published

on

President Trump is pressing the U.S. Supreme Court to allow him to exclude undocumented immigrants from the census count -- a move that goes against more than 200 years of practice where non-citizen residents, even those in the U.S. illegally, were among those counted.

While questioning New York Solicitor General Barbara Underwood, conservative Justice Samuel Alito said that the prospect of submitting two documents, one detailing census numbers of every person inside the U.S. and another detailing numbers that exclude undocumented immigrants inside the U.S. "seems like a totally meaningless formality."
