Walmart is catching fire on social media after shoppers caught sight of a T-shirt being sold through its third-party marketplace that says "Impeach 45", referring to President Donald Trump. Such sellers can sign up to advertise products on Walmart's website, and the retail giant gets a commission on each sale.
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. Since Walmart also sells pro-Trump clothing items, perhaps these t-shirts will be justified as a fair and balanced approach by the retailer.More news: How Japan cleaned up at the World Cup
Walmart did not immediately respond to a request for comment. It appears that Walmart has now taken down the listing for the shirt, caving in to the pressure. "We're removing these types of items pending review of our marketplace policies", a Walmart spokesperson told TIME.More news: Forsberg delivers lone goal against Swiss as Sweden advances at World Cup
