A number of stores have reported their grocery stores have seen a drop in customers since November when the US presidential election was called.
The Guardian understands that the drop in shoppers has been due to people leaving the US for other parts of the world, including Australia.
Some stores have also reported that the cost of their groceries is higher, and that many customers are returning to stores for a change.
On Friday, Mr Trump, who won the election by a wider margin than either candidate, addressed the US public and said the US economy was strong and the US would “re-build our country” after a year of turmoil.
“Our country is so much better than it was,” he said.
He also said he would not withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal.
His victory came after months of political upheaval and turmoil in the US, including protests over police brutality, a White House investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct and allegations of collusion between Mr Trump’s associates and the Russian government.
Mr Trump, a Republican, has repeatedly denied the allegations, calling them “totally false” and a political smear.
However, he has faced criticism from Democrats and some Republicans for his treatment of the FBI, which is investigating allegations that Mr Trump fired the bureau’s director last month amid allegations of interference in the election.
Republicans in Congress are also calling for an independent investigation into the allegations. ABC/AP
