1What a Shocker??
Nordstrom says it dropped Ivanka Trump’s brand because the dresses, heels, and jewelry weren’t big sellers. But the decision nonetheless aligned with the political views of some of the upscale retail chain’s employees.
President Trump, Ivanka’s father, finished a distant third among Nordstrom workers who made individual campaign contributions during the presidential race, a USA TODAY analysis of 2015-2016 Federal Election Commission data shows.
Democrat Hillary Clinton, a former U.S. secretary of state, took first place, receiving $38,232 from 60 donors whose employer was identified as Nordstrom in the data. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., claimed second place, collecting $13,196 from 33 contributors.
The employees joined Erik Nordstrom, a co-president of the company, who gave $2,700 to Clinton’s campaign last year. Shellye Archambeau, a Nordstrom board member and CEO of Metricstream, similarly gave $1,000 to Clinton in 2016, the FEC data shows.
