Reports indicate "Impeach 45" clothing is made by a number of manufacturers, some of which also produce items featuring with the "Make America Great Again" and "Donald Trump Speaks For Me" slogans.

The call for a Walmart boycott seemingly picked up steam as conservative media outlets spread the word about the shirts.

Apparel sold on Walmart's website sparks outrage for its sentiment against President Trump.

It's not the first time Walmart has caused a stir. As noted by Bloomberg, the real sellers are companies such as Old Glory and Teespring Inc., which advertise on Walmart's website and give the retail giant a cut of the profits.

Walmart's Marketplace has given the company headaches over which items to permit.

Walmart has not commented on the merchandise.
