Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, November 06, 2018

Presidential adviser Ivanka Trump's fashion brand won first trial approval for 16 new trademarks from the Chinese government in October. These approvals come about three months after Ivanka announced that her brand was shutting down, and mark the largest number of new Chinese trademarks she has received in a single month since President Donald Trump took office. Ivanka announced the immediate closure of her brand in July 2018, citing her official government responsibilities in Washington, DC. However, her trademarks remain a potential conflict of interest as she continues to work on policy in the White House and meet with foreign leaders. Despite shutting down, Ivanka Trump's brand will continue to seek new trademarks, according to public reports. This leaves open the possibility that she could resume her business after leaving her role in the White House. She retains ownership over all of her existing trademarks, and many of her trademarks will remain active as late as 2028.

Just for fun let's imagine this was Hillary Clinton (or Chelsea).

The uproar would be heard around the world: "LOCK HER UP!"

Bribery. Pure and simple. The Trumps belong in jail.

They don't figure themselves as hypocrites. They feel Donald and whelps deserve to squeeze millions from public office.
