Nordstrom has officially cut ties with Ivanka Trump’s brand

Published

on


The company said the brand’s declining sales led to its decision. “Each year we cut about 10% [of brands carried] and refresh our
assortment with about the same amount,” a Nordstrom spokesperson told
Business Insider. “In this case, based on the brand’s performance we’ve
decided not to buy it for this season.”
Nordstrom’s decision comes amid calls for a boycott against retailers that carry Trump products.

Ivanka Trump’s brand, which sells women’s clothing, shoes, and
handbags, was available on Nordstrom’s website as recently as Wednesday.
On Thursday, Ivanka Trump was not listed on Nordstrom’s master list of brands available, as Business Insider previously reported.

Trump’s brand did not respond to a request for comment.

Availability of Trump’s products has been declining on Nordstrom’s website for weeks.

Shannon Coulter, who launched the anti-Ivanka Trump boycott last fall, has been tracking the brand’s inventory levels on Nordstrom’s website for the last couple months.

As recently as the first week of December, there were 71 different
Ivanka Trump products available on Nordstrom’s website, according to
Coulter.

Last week, that number dropped to 26. On Wednesday, there were nine products available.

Critics of the Trump administration have called for boycotts against dozens of retailers for carrying Trump-branded products.

But Nordstrom became one of the main targets of the boycotts after a shopper’s open letter to the retailer went viral in October. The letter called Ivanka Trump’s brand “toxic” and demanded that Nordstrom stop selling it.

Nordstrom responded to the letter in November with a Twitter message that said it wasn’t taking a political position by selling Trump’s products.

“We hope that offering a vendor’s products isn’t
misunderstood as us taking a political position; we’re not,” the company
said at the time. “We recognize our customers can make choices
about what they purchase based on personal views and we’ll continue to
give them options.”

All items were gone from Nordstrom's Ivanka Trump brand page on February 2.

L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)

Published

By

A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .

They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.

The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.

He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.

When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.

But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.

Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.

“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.

The Buhari administration has been known for enforcing the Nigerian people to patronize Nigerian made goods though without much strategy to make life easier while this transition to economic growth is enforced. Many Nigerians have tagged it a harsh move that is insensitive and inhumane but moreso, Reno Omokri has singled out signals of hypocrisy in the President of Nigeria by outlining certain traits of family moves of the President that shows that he(Buhari) as the No.1 citizen has no regards for anything made in Nigeria but yet wants other Nigerians to embrace Nigerian made goods.

His kids schooled in England. His wife just returned from a 3 month UK stay. His daughter gave birth to his grandchild in Spain (made in Spain), yet
