Ivanka Trump Moves To Close Her Brand Immediately, Saying She's Committed To DC

Ivanka Trump, President Trump’s elder daughter and a top White House adviser, is shutting down her namesake fashion brand more than a year after stepping away from the company.

A spokesperson for daughter Trump's brand confirmed on Tuesday that they would begin immediately to wind down the business, not renewing licensing deals and letting employees go.

The decision comes one week after Hudson's Bay stores in Canada, who also owns Lord & Taylor and Saks Fifth Avenue, announced that they would not be carrying the brand in the future due to poor sales. 

“After 17 months in Washington, I do not know when or if I will ever return to the business, but I do know that my focus for the foreseeable future will be the work I am doing here in Washington, so making this decision now is the only fair outcome for my team and partners,” Ms. Trump said in a statement.

Since her father Donald Trump won the US presidential election in 2016, Trump family members "have faced continuing criticism that they are exploiting his position to promote their own personal interests", writes The New York Times.

Ivanka Trump's future -- including heer political ambitions -- remain unclear, as she's generall despised in New York, for her consummate failure to really stand for women's rights in America. Her father's administration has brought a wrecking ball to women's empowerment issues, with Planned Parenthood leading the list. 

Her own products are not manufactured in America but rather the very countries like China that her father rails against. Note that Trump's products are also manufactured off-shore, a reality that never captures the president's limited imagination. 

Protesters are frequently camped outside the Kushner'srented home --neighbors actually who own homes there -- and recent reports have the Kushners exercising in the dark early morning spin classes at Flywheel, a nearby studio,’ reported the Washington Post. Or they run at night after dark.
