Same day service

Huh. What a coincidence.

Ivanka Trump’s company won approval for three Chinese trademarks on the same day her father agreed to lift sanctions on ZTE, a Chinese telecommunications company that even a key Trump security adviser admitted is a national security threat.

According to records reviewed by the government watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), Ivanka’s business “received registration approval for three additional Chinese trademarks on June 7, 2018.”

President Trump struck a deal with ZTE on June 7, 2018.

The very same day. They’re taunting us, aren’t they.

Last year, Ivanka won provisional approval for three Chinese trademarks on the same day she dined with Chinese President Xi Jinping at her father’s Mar-a-Lago estate, allowing Ivanka Trump Marks LLC to sell activewear, jewelry, bags, and spa services under the first daughter’s name. Days after the meeting, the president broke a major campaign promise to punish China for being a currency manipulator and denying that it was manipulating its currency at all.

Trump had called China “world champions” of currency manipulation a mere 10 days earlier.

The president’s daughter recently reported she earned $82 million last year, partially from her ownership of her businesses. She also reported debts and liabilities in the undefined range of millions of dollars. Before she started working at the White House, she gave up official positions in her business, handing it over to a trust managed by members of her family, but she still retains ownership and benefits from any profits.

Greedy, aren’t they.
