On today’s Radio Times, we looked at how businesses are responding to the Trump presidency.  One of Marty’s guests was Shannon Coulter, co-founder of “Grab Your Wallet,” a campaign that encourages consumers to boycott retailers that sell Trump-branded goods. 

Coulter started a boycott of Nordstrom and last week the retailer announced it was dropping Ivanka Trump’s line of clothing and shoes because of poor sales.

Coulter said she mainly attributes Nordstrom’s decision to Ivanka Trump’s own actions.

“She campaigned for a guy who questioned the nationality of the president for five years, who makes fun of disabled people,” Coulter said.

“The goal isn’t to put anybody out of business or to hurt anybody’s brand. The goal is just to shop with a clear conscience.”
