Walmart's Marketplace has given the company headaches over which items to permit. He asked the company in a tweet, "What kind of message are you trying to send?" Amidst the many "Make America Great Again" tees, the company also sells shirts that are critical of the president.

While the 13 products, ranging in price from $11.95 to $24.90 were still searchable on Walmart's website on Tuesday morning, each individual item led consumers to a "Sorry..."

People on social media lashed out to show their discontent with Walmart selling the political merchandise.

This isn't the first time Walmart has found itself in trouble over apparel sold on its website. Students for Trump chairman Ryan Fournier called attention to it Monday on Twitter, Fortune and other outlets reported, causing a social media outcry.

Walmart became the target of Trump supporters outraged by a T-shirt sold on the company's website, leading to calls for a boycott Tuesday.

The shirt wasn't made by Walmart.

This isn't the first time Walmart has encountered backlash for selling political items.

However, the Walmart-owned website Jet.com still sells a variety of items under the more lighthearted "Impeach the Peach" logo that features a likeness of the United States president on travel kits, guitar picks and other items. Fournier wrote in a tweet directed at Walmart.

A Walmart spokeswoman did not return a request for comment.

"We're removing these types of items pending review of our marketplace policies", Walmart said. Last year, the retailer came under fire after a third-party seller offered t-shirts that suggested killing journalists. Another shirt that said "45 You're Fired" has also been removed from the site.
