Controversial Information Surfaces Following Ivanka Trump’s Meeting With China’s President

With all the fuss the Trump administration has made about some retailers dropping Ivanka Trump's fashion line from their stores, it turned out to be much ado about nothing. Ms. Trump's eponymous fashion line is doing better than ever, and has been reaching record sales. Boycotts don't seem to be hurting business at all. This fuels a lot of concerns about a conflict of interest, especially after what happened after Ivanka met the president of China.

When President Xi Jinping visited President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate last weekend, Ivanka Trump was there. She met with the Chinese president, and even sat down to dine with him.

That very same day, Ivanka's fashion business won four provisional trademarks that give her the rights to sell her line of fashion goods and services in China. Some are very suspicious about the timing of this deal, which could make Ms. Trump millions.

"Ivanka has so many China ties and conflicts, yet she and Jared appear deeply involved in China contacts and policy. I would never have allowed it," said former chief White House ethics lawyer, Norman Eisen, who served under former President Barack Obama.

The U.S. Constitution prohibits a president and his family from using the office for business gains. It would be criminal for Ivanka to use her position on her father's team of advisers to make business deals with foreign dignitaries. To prevent conflict, Ivanka stepped down from running her company and put it into a blind trust. Now that this conveniently timed trademark deal has happened, what are people to think?

Ivanka isn't the only one who seems to be benefitting from ties to China. Her husband, Jared Kushner, made hundreds of millions of dollars worth of real estate deals with a financial conglomerate that has ties to China.

"For their own sake, and the country's, Ivanka and Jared should consider stepping away from China matters," said Eisen.
