It’s an easy call: Buy Ivanka Trump products and you’re getting a piece of the Ivanka Trump family business.
But the president’s daughter’s decision to sell off some of her furniture brand to a family of Chinese investors who’ve made it a global powerhouse has raised questions about the potential for conflict of interest.
A review of Ivanka’s business holdings shows that her father’s business empire is far from a one-woman show, with several major transactions in the last several years.
The Trump Organization has sold more than 2,000 apartments in New York and Florida, and it has sold thousands of pairs of shoes, including shoes by designer Ralph Lauren.
While the family business remains focused on Ivanka’s products, her family has expanded into a larger role in her father, taking a more active role in overseeing the development of Trump-branded projects around the world.
Her involvement with Ivanka’s businesses extends beyond the president, however.
The president’s two sons, Donald Jr. and Eric, have also been instrumental in making their father’s companies profitable.
The Trump Organization’s website lists two Ivanka Trump business partners as the chief executive officer of its global real estate group, the Ivanka and Don Jr. Companies.
That partnership is the same one Ivanka Trump signed in 2016 to sell her jewelry company, the Trump Collection.
Ivanka Trump has been one of the most visible and vocal critics of President Donald Trump’s policies on trade and foreign affairs, especially his decision to withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, or TPP.
But as the president has become more vocal on the topic, his daughter’s companies have become increasingly critical of her father.
The first daughter has become a lightning rod for criticism.
She has spoken out against the president for his policy positions and for not staying in the agreement during his presidency.
She’s also taken a more aggressive stance on the issue of trade and climate change, criticizing the president in a series of tweets, often in support of Trump’s position.
Ivankas companies have faced criticism in the past for working with the Trump Organization, and her company has often been criticized for its poor performance on the job.
The companies’ sales have also generated criticism from the public and lawmakers.
In December, Ivanka Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, was forced to resign as the head of the White House’s Domestic Policy Council after he made disparaging remarks about President Donald J. Trump’s first lady, Melania Trump.
Ivanks decision to leave her father businesses has been criticized by both Democrats and Republicans.
Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., called the move “a sad day for the American people” and criticized her decision to take a handout from her father companies.
Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., said in a statement that he and the Democrats “are deeply disappointed that the president chose to sell his businesses assets and business to a Chinese company.
His decision to give the family a hand in the running of his businesses is antithetical to American values.”
In addition, Sen. Chris Coons, D, Del., said the president “has no place in running a country or a democracy.
He is an embarrassment to the office of the presidency, and this move will not make him any more effective.”
A spokesperson for the Trump family did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Ivakas business dealings are not the only example of Ivanka using her position as a White House adviser to benefit her father at the expense of other White House staff members.
Ivacks ties to Trump’s business are not uncommon, as her father has been accused of selling her businesses to foreign investors for a profit, and has been questioned about her financial holdings.
The U.S. Department of Justice announced in March that it would be investigating Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner over possible conflicts of interest in their dealings with the Chinese company behind Ivanka’s furniture brand.
The investigation is ongoing, and the Justice Department has not released the names of the companies involved.
In 2017, Ivanka said in an interview with The New York Times that she had made a series to help her father sell his companies off.
In that interview, Ivanka also said that she would continue to serve as a part of her family’s business and that she and her father would “absolutely not have an ethics problem.”
