In the beginning, it was affecting a few celebrities, a few left wing politicians, a few fringe cable news anchors, a few progressive mayors, some on progressive campuses...
Now it has gone main stream. When companies like Nordstrom drops Ivanka clothing line due to perceived public pressure...something else is going on.
What does her fashion products have to do with President Trump?
The only thing I can tell is they share a last name.
Her products and brand was and is her own. Her politics is socailly liberal...
Her support for Trump is natural because of the family ties.
Can someone explain this phenomenon?
It is the strangest thing.
While it makes a terrific political ploy to say that the line was dropped due to political pressure put on by millions of people boycotting Ivanka because they don't like her father (smart, right?), the truth is that Nordstrums has been talking with Ivanka and her company for a year about falling sales. A purely business decision, then, turned political by idiots trying to make a connection where none exists.
Nice try but it does not fly. How do you explain Macy's and TJX ? They are being Politically correct and it does not make them good business sense. If anything, with the election of Trump, her line of products will find new customers and increased sales... For a company to cave is short sighted. Don't forget, half of their customers voted for Trump. They are alienating 1/2 their customers. It was so unnecessary. They should IMHO leave politics out of their business. It will work out best in the end. That applies to all these business like, google, apple, facebook, IBM, amazon, Tesla...
Their support for the H1B program is contrary to the wishes of the America workers. They will pay dearly.
You want to talk about political ploys to hurt financially, talk about the city of Seattle ending a 20 year business relationship with Wells Fargo, for the stated reason that the bank loaned money to the company building the Dakota pipeline. Not about a company that made a purely business decision because of falling sales - sales that were falling when Trump was no more than an impossible blip on the radar.
That is a good example. Wells Fargo damaged their own brand by cheating their customers. I am surprised Seattle didn't act sooner. They are always the progressive leader and cutting ties with Wells Fargo over the pipeline is par with the course. They are a green city and soon will learn the cost of being an environmental zealot. The whole climate change debacle is about to unravel...
A Trump administration will get the EPA and NASA back on safe footing.
Except that Seattle didn't end their business because Wells Fargo cheated people. They are very clear that it was ended because the bank made a perfectly legal and ethical loan to someone doing a project that people protest and riot about. The city itself has become an activist - if a city could, it would be rioting in the streets of DC.
Can you see it now? Load city hall onto a truck, pack it with flamethrowers and drive past congress. Setting fire to everything within reach and bashing into the Capital and the White House. Maybe with the city manager screaming imprecations from the roof.
All this rioting and burning stuff by liberals cannot be good for the enviroment and climate. Somewhere theres an endangered spotted sewer rat coughing up a lung.
Meawhile DJIA up big time.
Should Nordstroms be forced to continue carrying her line if it isn't selling?
Should the President use his Twitter account to launch an attack on the chain and hurt its sales because his daughter got her feelings hurt?
No. Nordstrom is a public company and can do whatever they wish including pissing off half their customers. It is a losing proposition for these companies. If they want my advice, they should stick to the business they are good at and leave the politics to politicians. What do I know? I am just a citizen...
I'm glad we agree on the first point. But what about the second? Do you think the President should use his Twitter account to attack Nordstroms?
I am not a fan of twitter. I wish Trump would stop it.
I do understand why he does it. He is dealing with a dishonest and hostile press.
He wants to defend himself on his terms.
One of the mistake Bush made was not answering some of his critics... and allow them to frame his perception.
I do think the press had gone bonkers...
They have lost a lot of their credibility.
I think he could use his press secretary more and twitter less.
From what I have seen of Ivanka's products they are excellent and not overly priced at all. People who still want quality and don't want to pay huge markups will continue to be loyal customers and wear an "Ivanka Trump" name brand. My best friend recently purchased a down jacket with her name on the label, its just beautiful and of excellent quality.
She will be alright, she did marry up! She is such a sweetheart, brilliant, and talented lady who is empowered to do even greater things.
I kinda was interested in this, too, because she seems like a pleasant person, and I was wowed by her Pinterest? or other social page (just couldn't follow it, because it wasn't my thing-but it was fun to see). Yeah, it would be nice if it was just her products and not the politics right now (hopefully, that will happen).
