Old Glory is the company that sells the "Impeach 45" apparel and it's not the only one.

US retailer Walmart Inc (WMT.N) faced an outcry from supporters of President Donald Trump on Tuesday for listing for sale on its open marketplace clothing with the slogan "Impeach 45", an apparent reference to Trump, the country's 45th president. The company also sells a wide range of pro-Trump merchandise, including a substantial number of "Make America Great Again" hats.

The clothing also sent social media into a frenzy and caused #BoycottWalmart to trend Tuesday.

Some red, white and blue apparel offered on Walmart Inc.'s website from third-party sellers this holiday week may have American shoppers feeling a little less than united.
