Trump supporters urge Walmart boycott over 'Impeach 45' clothing

Third-party sellers can sign up to advertise products on Walmart's website, and the retail giant gets a commission on each sale. While it can't entirely deny responsibility, its failing here has nothing to do with partisan politics.
According to the International Business Times, Ryan Fournier, chairman of the group Students for Trump, found the clothing item in the website and was the first to report it. And the store in 2015 announced it would no longer sell items promoting the Confederate Flag.
Last November, Walmart drew ire over a shirt on its site that sported the phrase "Rope". "We are an American company and we are proud to be American, and this is what we do: We sell T-shirts for a living".
Walmart did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
These marketplaces are a vital source of revenue for retailers.
A spokesperson for Walmart told Reuters that the items were sold by "third-party sellers" on its open marketplace website and were not "offered directly by Walmart".
The result is an environment where a seller can successfully list baby clothes emblazoned with the freakish slogan "Slavery gets shit done"-which happened on Amazon's marketplace earlier this year". Other impeach Trump items were also available via Walmart.com, as were items bearing the president's signature "Make America Great Again" slogan.
By Tuesday afternoon Walmart had removed the listing from its website, though they are still available through other online retailers such as Amazon and Bonanza. Walmart sells the t-shirts, but it doesn't manufacture them.
