Nordstrom V the President of the United States


What’s the best way to take action? Do you send messages to friends and family to let them know what’s happening? Do you speak with whom you have a problem? Or do you whine about your social media page?


When you are faced with a situation you believe is unfair how do you go about trying to rectify the happening? Do you find the one being unfair and have a conversation? Do you attack them publicly? Do you share the story with all you know? Or, do you complain with anyone who will listen?


Donald Trump did three of the four, resulting in the commander and tweet sending late night tweets about Nordstrom. In doing so caused two sides to rise to action, one side deciding to boycott Nordstrom for canceling the contract with Ivanka. The other side shopping with Nordstrom for their decision to drop Ms. Trump’s clothing line.twitter-logo-1



Donald Trump lashed out at Nordstrom after they decided to discontinue their Trump line of clothing. President Trump sent out a tweet saying ““My daughter Ivanka has been treated so unfairly by @Nordstrom. She is a great person — always pushing me to do the right thing! Terrible!”

USAToday said “Others compared Trump’s tweet to President Harry Truman’s threats on a music critic who drubbed his daughter’s concert performance.”

I believe this is a fairly accurate position, because Trump is using his position to inform people of a partial story, not a whole story where Ivanka Trump’s clothing line and the sales have not been selling.

I am brought to wonder if the point of the tweet was draw attention to what he believed was unfair treatment to his daughter. At what point is it overprotective, or not understanding the whole story.

Sean Spicer defended Trumps tweet by saying ““For people to take out their concerns about his actions or his executive orders on members of his family, he has every right to stand up for his family and applaud their businesses activities, their success,”


As a businessman turned president becomes blinded when family enters the fray, if something doesn’t sell why continue a contract? I always thought sales were business 101, guess there’s still more to learn.
