The availability of the apparel sparked a "boycott Walmart" campaign in support of Trump.

What those users didn't realize was that Walmart is also selling a variety of pro-Trump hats and shirts.

A search of the Walmart website Tuesday showed no "Impeach 45" apparel available for sale online.

Late last night, Ryan Fournier, the chairman of the political group Students For Trump, tweeted about the shirt (that also came in adorable onesie form), asking Walmart, "What kind of message are you trying to send?"

The T-shirts weren't being sold by Wal-Mart itself, but by third-party sellers including Old Glory and Teespring Inc. As recently as Tuesday morning, the Bentonville, Ark. -based company was selling a line of adult t-shirts and baby onesies emblazoned with the slogan; as a result, supporters of President Trump are calling for a boycott of the chain, which has 5,000 stores in the U.S. It appears that Walmart has now taken down the listing for the shirt, caving in to the pressure. "We're removing these types of items pending review of our marketplace policies", a Walmart spokesperson said.

It's not the first time Walmart has caused a stir. "Tree. Journalist. SOME ASSEMBLY REQUIRED" was listed on its website through an outside company.

On June 27, Walmart announced that it was introducing a 3D virtual shopping tour on its website, as the retailer pours billions of dollars into beefing up its e-commerce business.
