Politics hasn't stopped the growth of Ivanka Inc

Politics hasn't stopped the growth of Ivanka Inc

Her company has reported record sales since her father's inauguration despite some retailers, including Nordstrom, TJ Maxx and Marshalls, pulling the line, the Hill reported. Less than a week after meeting with the president, Trump reneged on his campaign promise to penalize China for being a "currency manipulator" and instead said that China hasn't manipulate its currency for months.

Ivanka Trump no longer manages her clothing, jewellery and accessories brand, but still owns the business and is frequently seen wearing clothes from her own collection.

The Chinese government gave provisional approval to Ivanka Trump's company for at least two trademarks on April 6, the same day she dined with Chinese President Xi Jinping at Mar-a-Lago.

"We consistently follow the principle of equally protecting the legal trademark rights of trademark owners of foreign companies and handle the process of relevant trademark registration in accordance with the law and rules", he told a daily news briefing.

Asked about the timing of the April 6 approvals, Lu said: "There are perhaps some media engaging in hyping certain gossip to hint at something undisclosed".

Peter Riebling, a trademark lawyer in Washington, D.C., disagrees with that statement.

According to China's Trademark Office, Ivanka's brand already has 16 registered trademarks and 32 applications awaiting approval in China.

This week, opposition leaders called demonstrators to the streets on Wednesday in what they dubbed the "mother of all marches". PRESIDENT NICOLAS MADURO, Venezuela (through interpreter): The time for combat has arrived, my fellow patriots.

Her decision to hold onto the investment requires Ivanka Trump to take measures to avoid conflicts.

"What's interesting about these applications is they sailed through incredibly quickly compared to what is normal in China, under normal trademark practice", Riebling says. The New York Times published a story earlier this month talking to young Chinese professionals who worship Ivanka. "When I look at this the first thing I think of is the Chinese government should be given a speeding ticket. I hate shopping, and I will go get some myself today", Conway said on national television in February. While trademarks do not directly confer financial gains, they protect the use of logos and other intellectual property, making them valuable tools for companies looking to build new ventures or expand existing operations.

"She has put her business into a trust, but it's a trust being run by her family; it's not a true blind trust".

It is not clear how Trump, now a federal employee, will navigate continuing ties to far-flung foreign business interests. The Conways now own a home in Alpine that they bought in 2007 for $6 million, and have been raising their four children there, although Conway has indicated she plans to transplant the family to D.C.

Her endorsement came after the label was publicly dropped from USA department store Nordstrom.

The issue raises serious concerns about conflicts of interest for the daughter of Donald Trump, who acts as an advisor to the United States president. "The brand has filed, updated, and rigorously protected its global trademarks over the past several years in the normal course of business, especially in regions where trademark infringement is rampant", she said.
