The White House Is Defending President Trump’s Nordstrom Tweet

February 8, 2017, 8:21 PM UTC

A White House spokesman says President Donald Trump was standing up for his daughter when he posted a tweet criticizing Nordstrom.

Trump tweeted that Ivanka Trump was treated “so unfairly” by the department store, which decided to stop selling her clothing and accessory line.

White House spokesman Sean Spicer says Trump was responding to an “attack on his daughter.”

Spicer says Trump is president — and “for people to take out their concern about his actions or executive orders on members of his family, he has every right to stand up for his family and applaud their business activities, their success.”

Nordstrom did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment about Trump’s tweet.
