(Newser) – It took a few days, but President Trump has come out against Nordstrom after the retailer announced it won't be selling Ivanka Trump's fashion line this season. "My daughter Ivanka has been treated so unfairly by @Nordstrom. She is a great person -- always pushing me to do the right thing! Terrible!" Trump tweeted Wednesday—even retweeting it from the official @POTUS account.

Nordstrom, which said its decision was made based on poor sales, saw its shares dip 0.7% and then recover by 0.2% after Trump's tweet. Reuters reports that this is the first time Trump has taken to Twitter to criticize a business with ties to his family since becoming president. But it's certainly not the only business he's slammed on Twitter since taking office; the AP has a complete list. (Read more President Trump stories.)
