More than half of the stuff Amazon sold in 2017 came from third-party sellers, rather than Amazon itself, and Walmart saw its sales jump after it overhauled its marketplace.

Trump supporters have taken to Twitter to complain to the retailer.

As counter-protestors pointed out on social media, Walmart.com also offers MAGA products for sale.

President Trump's campaign manager, Brad Parscale, tweeted Tuesday that Walmart was removing the T-shirt and a boycott was not necessary.

The shirts, seemingly discovered by the chairman of the group Students for Trump, are one of a number of "Impeach 45" offerings, which range from sweatshirts to baby clothes from a wide variety of manufacturers.

After complaints, custom shirt company Teespring removed the shirt from the site.

Sellers do need to apply to be able to list their items. "We are an American company and we are proud to be American, and this is what we do: We sell T-shirts for a living".

Apparel sold on Walmart's website sparks outrage for its sentiment against President Trump.

"No need to boycott".

Walmart said in a statement that it is reviewing its marketplace policies. "It was not deliberate".

People have the right to deny Walmart their business for any reason they please.

Saunders said the difference in approach underscored the gap between shoppers of the two companies, with Amazon consumers tilted somewhat more heavily towards cities and other progressive areas.

While social media users blasted Walmart for selling anti-Trump products, a quick search of the online store shows that the retailer also sells numerous pro-Trump hats and shirts, emblazoned with slogans such as "Make America Great Again", "I heart Trump" and "Trump won, get over it".
