  • Burlington Coat Factory Drops Ivanka Trump's Clothing Brand Online

Burlington Coat Factory, a South Jersey-based discount retailer, is the latest to pull down Ivanka Trump's products from its website.

It was revealed by Slice's Marketing and Communications Manager, Taylor Stanton that Ivanka's brand had great sales in 2016 but in January this year, the sales dropped substantially.

On Monday, Daily Show host Trevor Noah used his Twitter account to respond to a story about actor Scott Baio joining the #BoycottNordstrom campaign protesting the department-store chain dropping Ivanka Trump's fashion line, with the joke "That (expletive) for Nordstrom".

It wasn't clear whether Ivanka Trump products would continue to be sold in Burlington Coat Factory stores, Business Insider said. "Awful!" read Trump's tweet protesting Nordstrom's decision to stop selling his daughter's products. Coulter began a list of companies that carried Trump-affiliated products and encouraged people to boycott them. The retailer is still selling Ivanka Trump's clothing line.

President Trump's Senior Counselor Kellyanne Conway also defended Ivanka's trademark and called people to buy her products.

This tiptoeing is in response to shoppers who are using their purchasing power to punish retailers or reward them based on their political beliefs, a trend that has become more high-profile with Donald Trump's presidency.

The apparent decision came following a similar one on the part of Nordstrom, which prompted a significant deal of criticism from Ivanka Trump's father and his White House spokespersons.

A search of the retailer's website resulted in the message, "We were unable to find results for 'Ivanka Trump'".
