USA: Anti-Trump boycott movement is still going strong

USA: Anti-Trump boycott movement is still going strong

Shannon Coulter, a brand and digital strategist, started the#GrabYourWallet hashtag in October to encourage people seeking a way to take concrete action against Donald Trump to boycott companies — large and small — that do business with his family.

It seems the boycott is producing results. In February, brands such as Nordstrom, Jet.com, and Gilt dropped Ivanka Trump’s fashion line.

Today, Grab Your Wallet’s website highlights a condensed list of the “most boycott-able” companies. However, the official, more extensive boycott list — which users can now keep track of using a Google Chrome plug-in — targets many more companies for reasons ranging from selling Ivanka Trump’s brand, to being owned by a member of the Trump family, to having a pro-Trump executive.

As of Wednesday, Grab Your Wallet’s list of brands to boycott includes 51 retailers, from big names like Amazon and Macy’s, to smaller companies like Wegmans and See’s Candies.

While the chain banned Donald Trump’s menswear line in 2015 after the president-elect referred to Mexican immigrants as “rapists,” it still sells Ivanka Trump’s lines of clothing, jewelry, and handbags.

Neiman Marcus

The luxury retailer keeps flip-flopping on whether or not it sells Ivanka Trump’s jewelry line.

Neiman Marcus was added back to Grab Your Wallet’s boycott list after two Ivanka Trump rings were spotted on the retailer’s website in early March. However, with the demise of Ivanka’s fine jewelry line, the retailer may not be on the list for long.

L.L. Bean

Unlike many other companies on the list, L.L. Bean does not sell Trump products. Instead, it has been targeted because Linda Bean, a member of the company’s board and the granddaughter of the company’s founder, Leon Leonwood Bean, donated $60,000 to a Trump-supporting PAC called Making America Great Again LLC.

Grab Your Wallet is calling for a boycott until Linda Bean is removed from the company board.

Bloomingdales

The retailer sells Ivanka Trump’s lines of shoes and handbags.

Zappos

The shoe company carries Ivanka Trump shoes, clothing, and handbags.

Amazon

The e-commerce giant carries both Donald Trump and Ivanka Trump merchandise, from the book “The Art of the Deal” to Ivanka Trump’s shoe line.

For what it’s worth, some Trump supporters on Reddit have also called for a boycott of Amazon because CEO Jeff Bezos said he wants to send Trump to space. The CEO has also said the president-elect “erodes our democracy around the edges.”

Hudson’s Bay

The Canadian department chain sells Ivanka Trump clothing and accessories.

Marshalls, TJ Maxx, and Winners

The retailers, owned by the same parent company, sell Ivanka Trump clothing, shoes, and accessories.

However, TJ Maxx has recently wanted to avoid highlighting this fact. In early February, the company instructed employees to throw away signs advertising the first daughter’s brand.The memo also told workers to mix Ivanka’s merchandise with other products, instead of showcasing the brand separately, The New York Times reported.
