Nordstrom has been making headlines ever since the retailer officially dropped Ivanka Trump’s clothing line last week. The retailer initially said it dropped the clothing line after poor performance; though Ivanka’s brand initially disputed that announcement, several other retailers appeared to also have severed ties with the clothing and accessories line.
Then on Wednesday President Donald Trump tweeted his displeasure with the fallout, writing, “My daughter Ivanka has been treated so unfairly by @Nordstrom,” he tweeted. “She is a great person — always pushing me to do the right thing! Terrible!”
But it seems his attack backfired. Nordstrom’s stock rose yesterday following his combative tweet, ending 4 percent higher by day’s end. And an army of celebrities dropped a huge chunk of change in support of Nordstrom’s decision.
