      Trump's trade war perfidy hasn't caused any problems for his daughter, Ivanka Trump. Her Made in China shoes continue to be supplied due to a major exemption from Trump's trade policy, which is probably no accident.

      Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner earned at least US$81 million last year, despite busy White House rolesChina approves 13 new Ivanka Trump trademarks in three months, raising conflict of interest questions

      The U.S. imposed an additional 25 percent tariff on $34 billion worth of Chinese goods on Friday.

      Among the sectors affected were nuclear reactors, boats and aircraft, but clothing was exempted.

      According to the American Apparel and Footwear Association, about a third of the clothing and 72 percent of the shoes sold in the U.S. are from China.

      Chengdu Kameido Shoes in Sichuan province said it had supplied shoes for the Ivanka Trump brand in the past and was aiming to do so again.

          Russia and China are among several countries the Trump organization does business with. I wonder if his neckties are still made in China?

          China
          Trump has wanted to bring his brand to the Middle Kingdom for years. On his 2016 financial disclosure statement, he lists positions in multiple companies that could be connected to business in China. Trump Hotel Collection CEO Eric Danziger was quoted in Chinese media last fall as saying the company plans to build 20 to 30 hotels in the country. At least two planned ventures have failed in the past: a 2008 office-building project with Chinese developer Evergrande Group, nixed in the aftermath of the global recession, and a 2012 deal that was junked because one of the project’s partners, State Grid Corporation of China, became enmeshed in a corruption scandal. Meanwhile, Trump has significant Chinese business ties stateside: the biggest tenant in New York’s Trump Tower has been the Industrial & Commercial Bank of China (ICBC), a state-owned bank whose lease is set to expire in 2019. According to ethics watchdogs, the renewal negotiations could place Trump—who pledged during his campaign to impose tariffs on Chinese imports and label the nation a currency manipulator—in violation of the so-called “emoluments” clause in the Constitution, which prohibits accepting gifts or payments from foreign governments.


          Russia
          “For the record, I have ZERO investments in Russia,” Trump tweeted in July, one day before he called on the country to “find” a batch of emails deleted from Hillary Clinton’s private server. Nonetheless, Russia’s extraordinary meddling in the 2016 U.S. election—a declassified report released by U.S. intelligence agencies in January disclosed that intercepted conversations captured senior Russian officials celebrating Trump’s win—as well as Trump’s complimentary remarks about Russian President have stirred widespread questions about the President-elect’s pursuit of closer ties with Moscow. Several members of Trump’s inner circle have business links to Russia, including former campaign manager Paul Manafort, who consulted for pro-Russia politicians in the Ukraine. Former foreign policy adviser Carter Page worked in Russia and maintains ties there. Retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, Trump’s incoming national security adviser, has been a regular guest on Russia’s English-language propaganda network, RT, and even dined with Putin at a banquet. During the presidential transition, former Georgia Congressman and Trump campaign surrogate Jack Kingston told a gathering of businessmen in Moscow that the President-elect could lift U.S. sanctions. According to his own son, Trump has long relied on Russian customers as a source of income. “Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets,” Donald Trump Jr. told a Manhattan real estate conference in 2008, according to an account posted on the website of trade publication eTurboNews. “We see a lot of money pouring in from Russia.”

              The Constitution means nothing to these people. Using the WH for their own gain is happening on a daily basis, not only with the Trump family, but the whole cabinet together with members of our Congress. We need a designated survivor!

                  That would be their just rewards!

                  It irks me that our farmers get it in the neck with the Don's trade war, but Ivanka can carry on with her cheap shoes because they are exempt.
