One of the biggest stories to dominate the news cycle over the last week has been President Donald Trump sounding off at Nordstrom for dropping Ivanka Trump's clothing line. After the president smeared the department store, he's now going after the media for allegedly abusing his daughter.

Trump on Ivanka

When Nordstom announced last week that they were no longer going to be carrying the clothing line of Ivanka Trump, the billionaire real estate mogul was not pleased. "My daughter Ivanka has been treated so unfairly by Nordstrom," Donald Trump sent out on social media, while also describing her as a "great person" who was treated "Terrible!" by the company.

In the days that followed, the media was critical of how Trump reacted to the news, especially targeting Presidential Counsel Kellyanne Conway for appearing to violate ethics laws by publicly promoting the Ivanka's brand. In response, Trump returned to Twitter on Saturday night, and appeared not to be over the news.

"I am so proud of my daughter Ivanka," Donald Trump wrote on Twitter Saturday night. Not stopping there, the president then went on to defend his daughter from alleged abuse from the mainstream media.

"To be abused and treated so badly by the media, and to still hold her head so high, is truly wonderful!" Trump concluded.

Trump fact-checked

Despite the allegations from Donald Trump and the White House, Nordstrom confirmed that the reason they dropped the clothing line was because of poor sales. According to a report in the Wall Street Journal, the sales of Ivanka Trump's line of clothes dropped by nearly a third during the presidential election, which is likely attributed to the criticism and backlash to her father's campaign.

In the aftermath, other stores like T.J. Maxx and Marshalls have also announced that they will no longer be carrying the line.

Moving forward

While Donald Trump and the media continue to battle in a war of words, the former host of "The Apprentice" is facing increased backlash from his recent policy proposals. The most controversial action since Trump came into the White House has been the "Muslim ban" executive order, which has since been blocked and shutdown by a federal court.
