Ivanka Trump Won 3 ChinaTrademarks The Day She Dined With Chinese President Xi Jinping

Ivanka Trump, who owns a retail brand bearing her own name and is an adviser to her father, President Donald Trump, won the approval of three trademarks from China on the same day she dined with Chinese President Xi Jinping and his wife, several news outlets reported on Tuesday.

The president hosted Xi and his wife at his Mar-a-Lago estate in early April. Ivanka Trump and her husband, Trump adviser Jared Kushner, were present throughout the weekend and sat next to the couple at dinner.

Ivanka Trump has “distanced” herself from her retail brand since she moved to Washinton to join her father as a senior adviser in the White House, but sales of her products have continued to surge. The brand, which she still owns, saw a spike in sales in the weeks after her father’s inauguration and after White House counselor Kellyanne Conway urged consumers to “go buy Ivanka’s stuff.”

Chinese first lady Peng Liyuan and Chinese President Xi Jinping sit next to Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Trump and his children have been criticized for conflicts of interest since his election. The president has brushed off that criticism, arguing that he can’t have a conflict of interest.

“The law’s totally on my side, the president can’t have a conflict of interest,” Trump said.

Ivanka Trump Marks LLC applied for at least nine new trademarks in the Philippines, Puerto Rico, Canada and the U.S. after the election, according to the Associated Press.

MSNBC’s Ari Melber explained how the White House ignored anti-nepotism laws to give first daughter Ivanka Trump a promotion in a special report on “The Point.”
