Glance: Retailers who sell or no longer sell Ivanka Trump

It was part of a widely publicized summit where trade cooperation between China and the U.S. was a main topic of discussion.

AP reports that on the very same day Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner had dinner with the Chinese president and his wife, her brand was granted three new trademarks to sell Ivanka-branded clothing, accessories and spa services in China.

Whether Ivanka can truly divorce her new role in politics from her brand remains to be seen.

"She views her role partly as guardian of the family reputation and has fretted during and since the campaign about the long-term damage to the family business's image that her father's political career could cause", the Times reported this weekend. Basketball star Michael Jordan, for instance, battled for years to win back the rights to the Chinese version of his name that was already being used by a Chinese company.

Ivanka, meanwhile, appears set to profit substantially as the brand bearing her name grows in the country, whether she's actively involved in it or not. This, mixed with Ivanka's new position in the White House presents a new kind of problem for the Trump presidency: How much can his children benefit from his presidency, and how much should they?

"I think actually it makes her look a little bit arrogant and a little bit complacent", said Liberal Democrat lawmaker Alistair Carmichael. And it's also entirely possible the timing of the Chinese government's decision on the trademarks had nothing to do with Trump's meeting with Xi Jinping.

Ivanka Trump may not understand what complicit means, but one would assume a businesswoman of her posturing would certainly understand what a conflict of interest is. Some argue that the more her business broadens its scope, the more it threatens to encroach on the ability of two trusted advisers to deliver credible counsel to the president on core issues like trade, intellectual property and the value of Chinese currency.

Ivanka has failed to fully divest from her eponymous company. Ivanka herself is revered in China, where her story, brand, and dynastic family situation resonate with young professional women.

The company has more than 180 pending and registered trademarks in countries including Canada, India, Japan, Israel, Mexico, Turkey, Saudi Arabia as well as in the USA and Europe, according to public records. "For their own sake, and the country's, Ivanka and Jared should consider stepping away from China matters", Eisen said.

Publicly, Ivanka Trump has taken a gracious, charming approach toward Beijing. Her jewelry company emails a "style alert" to reporters noting that she wore one of her "favorite" bangles, a $10,800 bracelet from her own collection, on the show.

In February, the president of the brand said it was seeing some of its best sales in its history.

BURLINGTON COAT FACTORY: Quietly removed Ivanka Trump products on its website in February but still carries them in its stores.

The number of Ivanka Trump items sold through Lyst was 46 percent higher the month her father was elected president than in November 2015. Now, the prime minister needs the backing of two-thirds of lawmakers and May said she would put her election call to the House of Commons on Wednesday.

But, we know TrumPutin isn't running his businesses from the White House (wink, wink), his family (wink, wink) are in charge of that.

Adamson said that is a competitive advantage other brands just can't match. All of which left her technically in the clear to tuck in to chocolate cake with the Chinese first lady and have her five-year-old daughter sing a welcoming song to the Chinese president.
