What If Stores Stop Selling Stuff Trump Doesn’t Like?

President-elect Donald Trump lashed out at designer Tom Ford this week when asked by Fox News anchor Ainsley Eardhardt about designers refusing to dress Melania Trump, including Tom. “Never asked Tom Ford, doesn’t like Tom Ford, doesn’t like his designs,” Trump said, apparently referring to Melania. “Tom Ford is an example — ‘I will not dress the First Lady.’ He was never asked to dress. And Steve Wynn just called me and he said he thought it was so terrible what Tom Ford said, that he threw his clothing out of his Las Vegas hotel. I’m not a fan of Tom Ford, never have been.” The “never asked” isn’t entirely true (apparently Ford was asked to dress her “quite a few years ago,” he said on The View). What does appear to be true: Wynn Las Vegas removed the Tom Ford line of cosmetics and sunglasses from its retail locations last weekend, a Wynn Las Vegas representative confirmed to Racked. (He declined to offer additional comment.) A precedent has now seemingly been set and the implications could be very real: What if stores stop carrying brands or products Trump doesn’t like?
