Hollywood Reacts to Trump's Nordstrom Tweet: "Is This What the U.S. Voted for?"
The president targeted the department store, which recently announced it would be dropping his daughter's fashion line, tweeting, "Ivanka has been treated so unfairly."
On Wednesday, President Donald Trump took to Twitter to sound off on Nordstrom, claiming that his daughter, Ivanka, was treated unfairly by the department store chain, which announced last week that it would stop carrying her brand, citing declining sales.
"My daughter Ivanka has been treated so unfairly by @Nordstrom," Trump wrote. "She is a great person — always pushing me to do the right thing! Terrible!"
A Nordstrom spokesperson told The Hollywood Reporter: "We've said all along we make buying decisions based on performance. We’ve got thousands of brands — more than 2,000 offered on the site alone. Reviewing their merit and making edits is part of the regular rhythm of our business. Each year we cut about 10 percent and refresh our assortment with about the same amount. In this case, based on the brand’s performance, we’ve decided not to buy it for this season."
Hollywood stars were quick to react to the president's tweet on social media. "I often promote my daughter's work. But I'm in entertainment #PrezTrump not a Reality TV star anymore," director Ron Howard tweeted.
