Ivanka Trump Gets Shocking News From Amazon

Ivanka Trump received good news from Amazon following decisions by several retailers to stop carrying her products -- her perfumes are the two best selling items on the site.

On Feb. 2, Nordstrom announced its decision to stop carrying Trump's products, citing a decline in sales as the reason.

"We've said all along we make buying decisions based on performance," Nordstrom said in a statement, the Independent Journal Review reports. "In this case, based on the brand’s performance, we’ve decided not to buy it for this season

Neiman Marcus followed suit after Nordstrom's decision, removing nearly every Ivanka Trump product from its stores and reducing prices of remaining items on its website.

Macy's previously stopped selling Trump's dresses in 2015 after her father, now-President Donald Trump, called Mexican immigrants "killers" and "rapists." Macy's CEO Terry Lundgren said at the time the company's policy was to opt out of selling "any product from any candidate, ever."

"If Hillary Clinton had a handbag collection we won't carry that, either," Lundgren added. 

The decisions by retailers garnered praise from some and backlash from others, and sparked movements from people either calling for a boycott of Trump's products or calling for more people to buy them in support of the First family.

The support for her products appeared to overwhelm the boycotts, as evidenced by the surge in sales on Amazon.

"We don't have a lot extra but we felt we needed to show our support for our President and his family," one Ivanka customer, Miranda Taylor, said, Fortune reports. "If buying a $15 perfume helps just a little in sending a message to those companies that are caving in to the left and their intolerant hate of OUR President then so be it."

President Trump spoke out against Nordstrom's decision, and adviser Kellyanne Conway criticized the company during a news interview. Conway landed in hot water for encouraging viewers to buy Ivanka's products, according to Politico -- something that is strictly prohibited due to conflicts of interest.
