Shannon Coulter, a brand and digital strategist, started the #GrabYourWallet hashtag in October 2016 to encourage people seeking a way to take concrete action against President Donald Trump to boycott companies — large and small — that do business with his family. As a result, brands such as Nordstrom, Jet.com, and Gilt dropped the Ivanka Trump fashion line last year.

On Friday, department-store chain Hudson’s Bay became the latest retailer to drop the Ivanka Trump brand from its stores and website. The timing is particularly pertinent given that Hudson’s Bay is a Canadian retailer, and President Trump and Canadian President Justin Trudeau are currently locked in a trade dispute.

In a statement emailed to Business Insider, the company said that the decision was based on the performance of the brand. “As part of our regular course of business, we review our merchandise offerings and make appropriate changes,” the Hudson’s Bay spokesperson said.
