Despite Macy's, Saks, and Zappos still carrying Ivanka Trump's fashion lines, it appears Nordstrom has folded to the liberal intelligentisia's "Grab Your Wallet" protests, demanding a boycott of retailers carrying Trump merchandise, as the department store stated today that it will no longer sell Ivanka Trump's eponymous clothing and accessories.
As ABC reports, a spokesperson for the retailer, which has nearly 350 stores under various banners across North America, said
"We've got thousands of brands –- more than 2,000 offered on the site alone,"
"Reviewing their merit and making edits is part of the regular rhythm of our business. Each year we cut about 10 percent and refresh our assortment with about the same amount. In this case, based on the brand’s performance we’ve decided not to buy it for this season."
The decision to no longer carry the line follows a grassroots campaign spearheaded by foes of Donald Trump called "Grab Your Wallet," which called for a boycott of retailers that carried Ivanka Trump or Donald Trump merchandise.
In November, Nordstrom took to Twitter to respond to a shopper's request to stop selling the brand.
"We hope that offering a vendor's products isn't misunderstood as us taking a political position; we're not," the retailer tweeted.
"We recognize our customers can make choices about what they purchase based on personal views & we'll continue to give them options."
So much for that! Maybe Nordstrom and Uber should partner up?

Update: It appears that Nieman Marcus has also cut the first daughter's fashion line. As The Hill reports, a search of the website shows no results for any products by Trump. Her brand's name is also no longer on the main list of designers on the site.
Neiman Marcus did not respond to an immediate request for comment.
