President Trump’s Anti-Nordstrom Tweet Polarizes Twitter

Social media is divided after POTUS uses his account to defend daughter

President Donald Trump divided Twitter on Wednesday morning when he called the department store Nordstrom “terrible” after it announced last week it would stop selling Ivanka Trump’s clothing and accessory line.

Trump’s tweet briefly impacted Wall Street, as shares of Nordstrom tumbled a few cents before quickly recovering.

The message by POTUS quickly made Nordstrom the top trend on Twitter, with some calling for a boycott of the brand and others expressing concern over Trump’s priorities and ability to affect the stock market.

Former CNN host Piers Morgan tweeted, “Man defends daughter against pathetically petty act of political spite by corporate entity – and HE’S the villain,” while another user wrote, “If liberal elites would get out of their coastal bubble they would know rural white working class voters are obsessed with Nordstrom.”

Meanwhile, a different user wrote, “Really don’t need anything from ‪@Nordstrom today but it feels like a beautiful day to spend some money there.”

The brand responded, writing, “Based on the brand’s performance we’ve decided not to buy it for this season.”
