An obvious conflict of interest to receive benefits for her personal business while meeting with Japan in role as WH adviser 🐷
"Ivanka Trump’s business recently received approval for two new trademarks in Japan, according to records from a Japanese trademark database reviewed by CREW. Ivanka Trump’s business has received multiple foreign trademark approvals since she became a White House adviser in the Trump administration.These trademarks have created ethics concerns about her potential business conflicts, given her multiple international trips and meetings with foreign leaders on behalf of the Trump administration."
"Ivanka Trump Marks LLC applied for these Japanese trademarks on November 9, 2016, the day after Donald Trump won the U.S. presidential election. The trademarks received approval on February 2 and February 16 of 2018, around the time of Vice President Mike Pence’s February visit to Japan and meeting with Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe."
"Abe also met with Ivanka Trump herself in 2016, when she accompanied her father to his first face to face meeting with a foreign leader as President-elect. This meeting occurred roughly one week after her company applied for the trademarks that recently received approval. Ivanka Trump Marks LLC won approval for several Japanese trademarks in 2017 as well."
