Walmart removes 'Impeach Trump' apparel after boycott threats

As recently as Tuesday morning, the Bentonville, Ark. -based company was selling a line of adult t-shirts and baby onesies emblazoned with the slogan; as a result, supporters of President Trump are calling for a boycott of the chain, which has 5,000 stores in the U.S.

Fox News credits Ryan Fournier, head of Students for Trump, as the first to call for a Walmart boycott on social media.

Wal-Mart is under fire after its website offered T-shirts from third-party sellers with "IMPEACH 45" emblazoned across the front in big capital letters - a call to bring down the 45th USA president, Donald Trump. It was sold on its marketplace, which features products by many brands, and includes political t-shirts representing many different points of view. He asked the company in a tweet, "What kind of message are you trying to send?"

And while Trump supporters are in an uproar over the Impeach 45 apparel, they must have forgotten that Walmart is a business and also sells a plethora of "Make America Great Again" hats, tee-shirts and cups to drink their haterade from.

Heavy-hearted Murray pulls out of Wimbledon
While Murray looked good at times, he said on Sunday that he wasn't ready to compete in a Grand Slam event. Wimbledon tweeted support for Murray and wished him "all the best with your journey back from injury".

Apparel sold on Walmart's website sparks outrage for its sentiment against President Trump.

Walmart, not long ago, was in trouble with liberals as well for a shirt it soldthat read "Rope".

But others called it hypocritical to remove anti-Trump gear while still selling pro-Trump items.

As I write this, Walmart has not yet commented on the t-shirts being sold online. As a capitalist, I can support offering both sides some sloganeering swag, I guess.
