The first daughter is well on her way to be wholly integrated into the White House
On Tuesday, Donald Trump's daughter Ivanka Trump said she was closing her fashion line to spotlight herself as an informal White House adviser, where she is works on advising “young working women”.
After the surprise win at the 2016 election, Donald Trump and his family went through fire and fury, that its portfolio of real estate and consumer goods businesses, which recline heavily on the Trump name as a marker of luxury, clash with their roles as Washington officials, reports Reuters.
Critics of the president called the shutting of the brand a victory for a boycott of Trump-tied businesses that began late in the 2016 campaign.

"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," Ivanka Trump, 36, said in a statement on Tuesday.

The president has been a roaring advocate for domestic manufacturing, prompting criticism that much of the Ivanka Trump line made overseas, as is the vast majority of clothing and footwear sold in the United States. According to media reports, much of her product line has been sourced from China and Bangladesh, where work ethics, standard violations and working environment, and labour rights are major causes of concern.
Good luck Ivanka Trump!
