First President Trump tweeted that Nordstrom was treating his daughter Ivanka unfairly by cancelling her line of clothing and accessories. Then Kellyanne Conway told everyone to go buy Ivanka’s stuff and that she owns some. Now the White House is receiving bipartisan grief over the comments with some calling it a violation of ethics.
The Trump White House is facing fresh bipartisan criticism from lawmakers and ethics experts after top adviser Kellyanne Conway promoted Ivanka Trump’s products in an interview and President Trump blasted Nordstrom for dropping his daughter’s clothing line.
The headaches began when Trump tweeted Wednesday at the high-end retailer: “My daughter Ivanka has been treated so unfairly by @Nordstrom. She is a great person — always pushing me to do the right thing! Terrible!”
The presidential dressing-down was retweeted by the official @POTUS account operated by the White House communications team.
But it was Thursday’s comments by Conway, the White House counselor, that drew criticism from a top Republican.
