Ivanka Trump Sale Chinese Goods under Her Fashionable Brand
WASHINGTON — May 30, 2018
Ivanka Trump refused to answer questions regarding Chinese trademarks found being sold by her fashion brand.
On a background call hosted by Ivanka Trump and Holli Richmond, the director of President Trump's Council on Sports, Fitness, and Nutrition, in advance of “White House Sports and Fitness Day,” Ivanka dropped off the call after being asked to comment on her father's new exercise regimen and questions pertaining to Chinese trademarks being awarded to her fashion brand.
“You can refer those questions to the press office,” press aide Ninio Fetalvo told reporters on Tuesday.
The White House also did not respond to CBS News' request for comment.
In addition, CNN followed up by asking Ivanka Trump for an update on her father's fitness schedule after Dr. Ronny Jackson notified the White House press corps earlier in the year that he had advised the president to lose some weight in 2018.
“So Ivanka had to step out for another meeting, but Holli is here to take on the additional questions,” Fetalvo replied after a brief pause.
