  • Ivanka
    Trump’s
    fashion brand announced on Tuesday that
    the company is shutting down. 
  • Reactions to the news have been divided, with many on
    the right celebrating the first daughter and those on the left
    using the closure as evidence that progressive boycotts can
    produce results. 
  • The brand has polarized America in recent years, with
    Trump supporters buying the fashion line to show support for
    the Trump family and those opposed to the Trump administration
    boycotting the line. 

 

Ivanka Trump’s controversial fashion brand
is shutting down
— and reactions reveal a polarized
America. 

On Tuesday, the first daughter and executives at the Ivanka Trump
brand announced that the company was shuttering. 

“After 17 months in Washington, I do not know when or if I will
ever return to the business, but I do know that my focus for the
foreseeable future will be the work I am doing here in
Washington,” Trump said in a statement. “So making this decision
now is the only fair outcome for my team and partners.”

Since Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, Ivanka Trump’s
fashion line has inspired
backlash
and
admiration
across the US. And, with the news that the company
was closing, reactions continue to reveal the divisions in how
people perceive Trump and her fashion brand. 

For supporters of Trump and her father’s presidency, the decision
to close the company is admirable. 

Others blamed liberals for the closure of the company. 

More critical voices celebrated the closure of the company, which
has been criticized for questionable labor practices and
manufacturing products abroad. 

Many on the left saw the company’s closure as evidence that
boycotts worked. 

And, some people simply didn’t care.
