At least two national clothing chains are telling employees to remove signs indicating Ivanka Trump's clothing line. 

Last week, TJ Maxx and Marshall stores sent a note to employees, according to the New York Times. That note read, in part, "Effective immediately, please remove all Ivanka Trump merchandise from features and mix into [the racks,]...All Ivanka Trump signs should be discarded."

A spokesperson for the companies said they aren't removing items from Ivanka Trump's clothing line, but instead are choosing rather to eliminate special displays advertising the product.

This news comes as two other brands, Nordstrom and Nieman Marcus', announced they will no longer by carrying Trump's clothing and jewelry line. President Trump has been critical of the decision in tweets, despite the companies saying the product was removed for brand performance.
