Walmart boycott: Calls mount over 'Impeach Trump' items

Walmart has found itself on the receiving end of a torrent of outrage after it was discovered Monday that the superstore was selling anti-Trump "Impeach 45" apparel on its website. Walmart sells the t-shirts, but it doesn't manufacture them.

What those users didn't realize was that Walmart is also selling a variety of pro-Trump hats and shirts.

CBS News reports one person pointed out the company also sold clothing from various vendors for people who opposed former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Trump's opponent in the 2016 presidential election, as well as for people who oppose former president Barack Obama.

Fortune credits Ryan Fournier, chairman of Students for Trump, with the discovery of the t-shirts for sale and the call for a boycott that followed.

Walmart did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Walmart, not long ago, was in trouble with liberals as well for a shirt it soldthat read "Rope".
