Earlier this month, Donald Trump and Chinese president Xi Jinping enjoyed a gourmet dinner at the President's Mar-a-Lago resport in Florida. While both leaders discussed trade and foreign affairs issues, the daughter of the President Ivanka Trump secured China trademarks for her brands. 

Ivanka Trump Marks LLC, has been granted four additional trademarks since her father’s inauguration and has 32 pending, according to the Associated Press, which first reported the new approvals. The expansion of Ivanka Trump's business abroad has sparked ethics concerns, considering Ivanka's job in the White House.  Ivanka Trump was appointed assistant to the president last month, after previously saying she would not join her father’s administration.

Althoug Ivanka Trump no longer manages her clothing, jewellery and accessories brand, she still owns the business and is frequently seen wearing clothes from her own collection. She has put her business in a trust, run by family members, as reported in The Guardian.

Ivanka Trump has been on a charm offensive with China over the past few months. Her five-year-old daughter Arabella, who is learning Mandarin, sang a traditional song for Xi during his US visit, and the performance was later praised in Chinese state media. The two also attended a Lunar New Year celebration at the Chinese embassy in Washington.

But not all US business are benefitting from the new administration. In a recent report, American businesses in China said they face one of the toughest climates in decades, largely due to increasing animosity towards foreign firms and slowing economic growth.

As reported in The Guardian.
