SAN DIEGO- Walmart sparked controversy for selling anti-Trump clothing on its website.

Old Glory is one of the companies selling the clothing with "Impeach 45" printed across the front of the shirts.

Walmart is catching fire on social media after shoppers caught sight of a T-shirt being sold through its third-party marketplace that says "Impeach 45", referring to President Donald Trump. There's also mens and juniors shirts that read "45 You're Fired", using Trump's facing line from his former show "The Apprentice".

However while the Impeach 45 items have been removed from sale other pro-Trump items are still available on the site.

Google reportedly allows outside app developers to read people's Gmails
To recall, Google back in 2017, said its computers will soon stop reading the emails of its Gmail users to personalise their ads. A new report says Google allows third-party applications to scan the emails of some Gmail users.

It's not the first time Walmart has caused a stir.

"These items were sold by third party sellers on our open marketplace, and were not offered directly by Walmart", a spokesperson said.

USA retail giant Walmart has removed anti-Trump merchandise following online boycott threats from the president's supporters.

The shirt wasn't made by Walmart. By Tuesday afternoon the items appear to have been taken down from the Walmart site.

The company issued a similar statement when it came under fire previous year for selling a shirt with the words "Rope". We have reached out to Walmart for comment, and will update this story with any reply.
