Didn’t Canada just refuse to sell her crap?

Courtesy of CNN:

Ivanka Trump has decided to shut down her company after deciding to pursue a career in public policy instead of returning to her fashion company.

Trump’s clothing and accessory business has been operating with limitations to reduce potential violations of ethics laws and the perceptions she’s profiteering off her White House role. Given those restrictions, Ivanka, who serves as a senior adviser to President Donald Trump, decided it didn’t make sense to keep the company running if she’s not returning after her father’s presidency, two people with knowledge of her decision-making process told CNN.

“When we first started this brand, no one could have predicted the success that we would achieve. After 17 months in Washington, I do not know when or if I will ever return to the business, but I do know that my focus for the foreseeable future will be the work I am doing here in Washington, so making this decision now is the only fair outcome for my team and partners,” Ivanka Trump said in a statement.

“I am beyond grateful for the work of our incredible team who has inspired so many women; each other and myself included. While we will not continue our mission together, I know that each of them will thrive in their next chapter.”

Yeah if you buy that bullshit about wanting to pursue public policy instead of being a walking talking mannequin for her own line of cheap ass clothing, I have some poorly sown blazers and skirts to sell you. 

The facts are that Ivanka’s brand has been suffering ever since her daddy demonstrated to the world that he is a Kremlin-controlled KKK member.

There was also the scrutiny that came her way after Trump made “America First” his tagline, and journalists discovered that not one thing she put her name one was made in America.

While President Trump has chastised companies for outsourcing jobs overseas, an examination by The Washington Post has revealed the extent to which Ivanka Trump’s company relies exclusively on foreign factories in countries such as Bangladesh, Indonesia, and China, where low-wage laborers have limited ability to advocate for themselves.

And while Ivanka Trump published a book this spring declaring that improving the lives of working women is “my life’s mission,” The Post found that her company lags behind many in the apparel industry when it comes to monitoring the treatment of the largely female workforce employed in factories around the world.

In other words, she is a fraud, just like her father.  And because of that people are simply not buying her poorly made garbage anymore.

Ivanka Trump’s fashion line has taken quite a beating since her father took office.

Several major outlets, including Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, and Marshalls, have scaled their Ivanka Trump offerings way back. The brand’s sales numbers have slipped significantly since the election, and many women say they’ve gone out of their way to avoid Ivanka Trump products.

Now, one of Canada’s largest department stores has said it will stop carrying her clothing, shoes, and accessories.

On Friday, Hudson’s Bay Co. pulled all Ivanka Trump products from its website. And it says it will stop selling her products in its 90 bricks-and-mortar stores across the country. (Hudson’s Bay also owns Saks Fifth Avenue, which also offers no Ivanka Trump merchandise online, and Lord & Taylor, which does.)

In a statement, the company said the decision was based on the brand’s “performance.”

“As part of our regular course of business, we review our merchandise offerings and make appropriate changes,” the company said in a statement. Officials also said Trump’s company had been notified of the decision last fall.

Like I said nobody wants to sell her poorly made crap anymore. 

However, there is still hope for Ivanka once her father’s presidency implodes in on itself. 

All she has to do is give Bristol Palin a call and get in on that sweet sweet poop tea promotion.

    Dear Ivanka Trump,

    When you’re the most hated family in the world, people don’t buy your shit.

    Signed,
    Business 101

    ‘Faced with plummeting sales and retailers bailing faster than the crew of Titanic, Ivanka Trump announced today that she is closing her fashion brand.

    So now the empress has no clothes either.’

    BREAKING: Ivanka Trump is shutting down her fashion brand. Americans don’t like traitors who import cheap clothes that look terrible. Go figure.

    Ivanka Trump: “I’m closing my fashion line because all my future work will be in DC”

    No Ivanka, it’s cause of plummeting sales & because the Trump brand is synonymous with racism and incompetence.

    BOOM: The ethically-challenged presidential daughter had grown frustrated by restrictions in place to avoid conflicts of interest. This is a huge win for #TheResistance who have raised these conflicts in the #GrabYourWallet campaign.

    How a Twitter Boycott Contributed to the Demise of the Ivanka Trump Brand

    https://www.elle.com/culture/career-politics/a22539627/grab-your-wallet-boycott-ivanka-trump-brand/

    Following news that Ivanka Trump would be closing her namesake fashion brand, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) Executive Director Noah Bookbinder released the following statement:

    “While this is a notable step in the right direction, it’s a small one that comes much too late. She reportedly realized that there were too many potential conflicts of interest to avoid, something many observers warned about from the beginning. The many ethics issues arising from her business were not limited to Ivanka Trump herself—Kellyanne Conway was reprimanded for doing a ‘free commercial’ for the brand from the White House.

    Ivanka Trump received trademarks from the Chinese government that concerningly coincided with several of her father’s actions towards China. Though the business is ‘shutting down,’ it will reportedly continue to file for new trademarks, which raises questions as to how serious this ‘shut down’ really is and whether the brand will continue to create conflicts of interest.

    The ethics issues that arise from her ownership of the Ivanka Trump Brand also arise from her ownership stake in the Trump Organization, and still more issues arise from her father’s ownership of that business. If the Trump family truly cared about ethics, they would fully divest themselves of these assets—something they should have done before they entered the White House.”

    The Ivanka Trump Collection is no longer. After 18 months of using the White House to hawk her knock-off clothing, shoe, and accessory line, which is entirely made overseas in abusive sweatshops, Ivanka is pulling the plug on her crappy brand. No matter how she spins it, all indications point to the company was failing. Had nothing to do with “ethical restrictions” placed on the company as she’s trying to claim. She ignored ALL ethical restrictions as she furiously tried to leverage her WH “position” to fuel growth.

    RIP, Ivanka Trump Fashions

    Ivanka Trump brand clothing is turning up in thrift stores across the country

    Americans say they are purging Ivanka Trump-brand clothing from their closets and bringing it to thrift stores because they refuse to associate with the businesswoman’s father — President Trump.

    Tess Bradley, a Pennsylvania resident, said she felt obliged to part ways with an Ivanka Trump scarf she loved after Trump became President.

    “Her name was huge on it and in all good consciousness I could not promote anything Trump,” she told the Daily News.

    And so she took it to Goodwill, after an upscale consignment store failed to sell it.

    Bradley and other women are taking their Ivanka Trump-brand wares to secondhand stores across the country in order to distance themselves from the ever-divisive President, Fortune reported.

    Thrift store sales reps report that they’ve seen more Ivanka Trump brand clothing than usual in their donation piles — and on their sales floors, according to Fortune.

    But not even their customers are interested in the brand.

    “Since November, I have seen a lot of her shoes come in. At least five or 10 pairs,” a sales floor employee at an Upper West Side Housing Works said. “But they usually sit for a while. They will be a nice shoe and look new, but they take a really long time to sell,” she said.

    Thrift stores don’t track inventory by brand, and could only provide anecdotal evidence of an uptick in unwanted Ivanka Trump clothing.

    But Thredup, an online resale website, found that in 2016, its users listed 223% more Ivanka Trump-branded clothing compared to 2015, Fortune reported.

    Maggie Redder, 67, said she dispersed $500-$600 worth of Ivanka Trump brand clothing among thrift stores in Broward County, Florida.

    She explained why she felt compelled to get rid of so much clothing. “I didn’t want any part of that name in the house. I felt disgusted and couldn’t stand the connection to the name Trump.”

    She’s glad to have gotten rid of the clothing, but has one regret. “I should have burned them,” she said.

    Ivanka Trump scarves recalled over ‘burn risk’

    About 20,000 scarves made in China for his daughter Ivanka Trump’s fashion line are being recalled because they pose “a burn risk,” the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Wednesday.

    Consumers should immediately stop using the rayon scarves, which come in two different styles, and return them to the place of purchase for a full refund, the CPSC advised. Although no injuries have been reported in relation to the scarves, they are being recalled because they fail to meet federal flammability standards.

    Donald Trump has made trade a key theme of his campaign for the Republican presidential nomination, slamming American companies for manufacturing products in countries outside the U.S. But many of the products in his and Ivanka Trump’s fashion collections — including Donald J. Trump suits and ties — are made abroad in places like China.

      Well, that will be the end of the US Consumer Product Safety Commission. Give it a week at most.

      Frankly, Ivanka needs to “quit” her helping-run-the-country “job” as well. She has contributed nothing to the political conversation and nothing that helps the American people or the people of the world. She’s as useless and worthless as every other member of that criminal syndicate family. Ivanka could go home and take care of her several children and ship the Chinese nannies back home to China. Isn’t there a tariff on nannies from China yet?

    This announcement is all smoke and mirrors. Ivanka is a grifter, just like her father. She doesn’t need to run a day-to-day sweatshop business to make money – her political connections have made her and Jared Kushner richer. Her most recent financial disclosure shows that her stake in the Trump international hotel in D.C. is worth between $5 million – $25 million.

    Gee, I sure hope she can survive off of all those mediocre properties that her father was supposed to have gotten rid of in the first place.

    So why did she need to get those trademarks in China so fast, wonder if she is opening another company under another name? She also is hoping this company goes into bankruptcy to follow family tradition of scamming the investors. Nothing with this family is the truth, so I am assuming she has got some other scam going and it isn’t public policy. This family does nothing that doesn’t enrich themselves at the expense of others.

    Meanwhile, her daddy is going to use OUR tax dollars to pay American farmers screwed by his tariff wars, just in time for the election.

    ================================================
    White House plans $12 billion pre-midterm payoff to keep farmers happy after Trump’s tariff hit job

    The White House is prepping a pre-midterm $12 billion payoff to farmers who largely backed Donald Trump in 2016 but have been getting killed by his trade war with the world. From soybeans to dairy to livestock, Trump has taken away key export markets for American farmers in Canada, Mexico, the European Union, and China. But the White House needs to make that pain go away before voters head to the polls this November and it plans to provide that salve courtesy of a buyout from American taxpayers. …….

    *deep breath* You poor thing! Mwahahahahahahaha!

    Okay, okay… all isn’t lost! Ivanka, did you notice that so many pics of your daddy feature his lips pursed in a rather peculiar way…? Almost as if he’s taking a Russian appendage in his mouth. Well, now you know what it takes for a Trump to compete in the business world. Hop to it, comrade!

    Interesting how she shut down the business today when it was reported today about the bank giving the trumps and kushners loan money for jobs in the white house.

    The real reason Ivanka Trump is shutting down her business

    …But it raises the question: why now? It’s fair to explore whether this move might be related to the Trump-Russia investigation.

    The question is why Ivanka Trump chose today to shut down her clothing business, Why not six months ago, when it was already clear that it was doomed? If she waited this long, why not wait another six months? Yes, she just got dropped by yet another retailer – but this is not the first, or the second, time this has happened to her. The bottom line is that there has to be a reason she chose right now, without warning, to immediately shutter her business. That brings us to a single name: Felix Sater.

    …………Now suddenly Ivanka Trump is abruptly shutting down her public-facing clothing company. Is she really just giving up on a failed business, or is she ducking and running from Mueller? Such a move won’t deter Mueller – but it’s the kind of panic move that people often make when investigators are closing in on them.

    Were there a saleable (profitable) company she would have sold. As there is not, her arrogance penned a closing statement.

    Or maybe she has pancreatic cancer.

    I wrote twice to the Hudson’s Bay Co to stop carrying the Ivanka Trump brand and, when the opportunity arose, I made sure to tell its employees that I would never, ever buy anything with the name Trump on it. I also never saw anyone looking at her merchandise in my local outlet. Sales must have been pretty low.
    I’m so glad to hear that the company has finally seen the light and has stopped carrying her cheap sweat-factories-made products.
    The whole Trump family is a disgrace with no morals. When Donny has run the country into the ground with an unsurmountable deficit, a forever tarnished reputation and no allies, and when the Mueller report comes out to expose their criminal activities and also their treasonous behavior vis-a-vis Russia, the family name will live in infamy just like the names, Hitler, Pinochet and Duterte. If a couple of them are not in jail by then, they will all scurry back under the rock where they came from, hopefully broke and destitute after the Russians will have called back their loans.
