Donald Trump’s first six weeks in office have done little to quiet calls for a boycott of the companies that do business with the president’s family.
If anything, boycotts are gaining steam – and they appear to be having an impact.
In February, brands such as Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, and Belk dropped Ivanka Trump’s fashion line.
While Nordstrom and others have said the decision was purely financial, all of the companies that have dropped the first daughter’s brand had been targets of the #GrabYourWallet movement. Shannon Coulter, a brand and digital strategist, started the hashtag in October to encourage people who were offended by Donald Trump’s language and actions to boycott companies doing business with his family.
As of Monday, 53 companies are still on Grab Your Wallet’s boycott list. But the movement has narrowed its focus on 10 companies. Here are the anti-Trump movement’s top targets.
While the chain banned Donald Trump’s menswear line last year after the president-elect referred to Mexican immigrants as “rapists,” it still sells Ivanka Trump’s lines of clothing, jewelry, and handbags.

Unlike 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.

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.”

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.
