Following a stunning announcement that first daughter Ivanka Trump is shutting down her namesake fashion apparel line due to plummeting sales, internet users piled on the White House adviser who saw her company collapse due to her joined-at-the-hip connection to her president father, Donald Trump.
On Tuesday, the Wall Street Journal reported the business was closing down immediately with Abigail Klem, who took over as president of the brand, expected to break the news to the the company’s 18 employees later in the day at a staff meeting.
After spending the past year being pummeled for using her position to enhance her “brand,” the response to Ivanka’s “fail” on Twitter was … unsurprising.

Not so fast. What about Adrienne Vittadini? The brand @IvankaTrump is now selling her merchandise under. Are we to believe G-III approved of rebranding under the Vittadini label, without Ivanka being aware of this decision according to the Snopes article?https://t.co/65dGoivd2n pic.twitter.com/YcK0u8P5O6

Why did Ivanka Trump go through the trouble of getting those trademarks in China only to dissolve her company? Something doesn’t add up.
