Items from Trump Home, which is part of the Trump Organization, were reportedly not available on both websites and did not appear in a search of either website as of Friday.

"Amid that streamlining effort", said a statement from Sears Holdings, "31 Trump Home items were among the items removed online this week". On Saturday a spokesperson for Sears Holdings Corporation said the two chains would no longer sell Trump Home items in their online stores.

Neither Kmart nor Sears had ever carried Trump Home in their physical stores.

Recently, retailers including Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Belk, Jet, ShopStyle, Home Shopping Network, T.J. The president has not, however, commented on the move by Sears and Kmart.

That's what happened to Nordstrom, whose stock rose more than 7% after being lashed on Twitter by the president for dropping first daughter Ivanka Trump's brand.

The news comes shortly after other retailers chose to partially or completely distance themselves from the Trump brand.

President Donald Trump was vocal about Nordstrom's decision to stop selling Ivanka Trump's fashion brand, taking to Twitter last week to express his dissatisfaction by calling it "unfair".

White House press secretary Sean Spicer defended Trump's tweet, saying said he had "every right" to stand up for his daughter.

Nordstorm fired back, reiterating that the decision to pull the clothing line was based on performance.

Rosemary Young, senior director of marketing at Ivanka Trump, told CNNMoney last week that the brand was growing and experienced "significant year-over-year revenue growth in 2016".

Presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway later landed herself in a controversy when she went on "Fox and Friends" and promoted Ivanka Trump's brand.
