Supporters of President Donald Trump have been calling for a Walmart boycott after seeing "Impeach 45" baby clothes for sale in the online store.

"As a fierce proponent of the First Amendment that is politically nonpartisan, we recognize Walmart's right to sell the T-Shirts, and the right of consumers to purchase and wear them", the group's executive director Dan Shelley wrote in his letter to the retailer.

Walmart did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
