Sears, Kmart drop 31 types of Trump products

USA retail giants, Sears and Kmart, announced they are dropping 31 Trump Home products from their stores Saturday-a risky move for Sears Holdings Corp, the company that owns both chains.

Sears Holdings announced February 11 that it would no longer sell Trump Homes items in the online stores for its Sears and Kmart brands.

A spokesperson for Sears Holdings (Kmart is a subsidiary), said that 31 Trump Home products have been removed online as part of a "streamlining effort" so the company can "focus on our most profitable items".

The report says there are no longer any traces of the Trump Home line on the websites of Sears and Kmart.

Business Insider said that neither company ever carried Trump Home items in their brick and mortar stores.
