Trump Transition Team Troubles: For Ivanka. No Problemo — I Am Getting Richer

Maybe before or after the 60-Minutes Interview with Mr. Trump

100% after the 60-Minutes Interview: Hawked the bracelet via Twitter 

This story from there (NY Post): Ivanka Trump’s company is under fire for using her father’s “60 Minutes” interview to peddle a $10,800 bracelet from her jewelry line. She appeared on that Sunday segment wearing a diamond and gold bangle on her left wrist as she sat with her president-elect dad and other family members.

The very next day, journalists received a “Style Alert email from her company, Ivanka Trump Fine Jewelry,” was crowing that: Ivanka wore her favorite bangle from the Metropolis Collection over the weekend on 60 Minutes.”

A New York Times reporter who received the email called it “ethically blurred,” and many warned that the incident is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to potential conflicts of interest involving President-elect Donald Trump.

DAMAGE CONTROL – SORT OF (typical limp wrist excuse, too):

Ivanka’s company president, Abigail Klem, later issued a statement about the email, saying: “This notification was sent by a well-intentioned marketing employee at one of our companies who was following customary protocol, and who, like many of us, is still making adjustments post-election. We are proactively discussing new policies and procedures with all of our partners going forward.’’

Ivanka has personally pushed her goods using her father’s political success in the past like after the RNC Convention when she tweeted out a link to the dress she wore that night when she spoke: It soon sold out.  

My note: Wow – already using the Trump brand and name to enrich their bottom line as it were and this early, too – double dog wow…!!! Can't wait to see the next 4 years.

For all the folks who supported Trump, Inc., You have been had.
