Ivanka Trump awarded 5 new trademarks in China as her father’s trade war rages on

Published

Even as US industries suffer as President Donald Trump continues his trade war with China, his daughter and senior White House advisor Ivanka Trump may be profiting from Chinese markets.

CBS News reports that the Chinese government approved five preliminary trademarks linked to Trump’s companies in January. They include child care centers, sunglasses, wedding dresses and charitable and art valuation services.

Although Trump put aside her leadership role in the companies when she joined the Trump administration, experts tell CBS that the trademarks lay the groundwork for future profits.

“Ivanka receives preliminary approval for these new Chinese trademarks while her father continues to wage a trade war with China,” noted Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington.

“Since she has retained her foreign trademarks, the public will continue to have to ask whether President Trump has made foreign policy decisions in the interest of his and his family’s businesses,” they wrote.

Trump’s televised ‘petulance’ is driving a key voting bloc away from the GOP amid the coronavirus pandemic: columnist

Published

on

Writing in the Washington Post this Monday, columnist Karen Tumulty writes that when it comes to the reliable voting bloc of Americans who are 65 and older, President Trump is on shaky ground, thanks to his bungled response to the coronavirus.

Recent polling has shown a notable shift in support for Trump from America's senior citizens. According to Democratic pollster Geoff Garin, "Trump is blowing what had become an important Republican advantage."

Tumulty writes that this slip in support is also the fault of Republicans in general, who've been sending subtle messages to older Americans that their lives are not worth as much as a strong economy. Nevertheless, older Americans have been paying close attention to Trump's handling of the coronavirus crisis.

Fox’s Chris Wallace rips into Kayleigh McEnany for questioning faith of White House reporters

Published

There aren’t many people at Fox News who President Donald Trump angrily rails against on Twitter, but Chris Wallace is an exception. Wallace, although conservative, isn’t shy about being critical of Trump and his administration at times — and on Sunday, May 24, Wallace called out White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany for questioning the faith of White House reporters.

Trump is demanding that governors in the U.S. allow churches to fully reopen sooner rather than later — and McEnany, at a press conference, joined him in that assertion. Reporters, however, brought up a very legitimate concern of governors: crowded religious gatherings, governors worry, could promote the spread of coronavirus. And McEnany accused White House reporters of being anti-religion — a claim that Wallace stressed was way out of line.

Lawmakers discussing possibility that ‘freaked out’ Trump won’t accept election loss

Published

on

President Donald Trump's increasing attacks on election integrity have raised new alarms about his efforts to delegitimize the results in November.

Just as he did in 2016, Trump has been flinging baseless accusations of "rigged" elections and has, as president, threatened to withhold funding from Michigan and Nevada for going ahead with plans to allow voting by mail during the coronavirus pandemic, reported Politico.

"He is planting the seeds for delegitimizing the election if he loses," said Vanita Gupta, a former head of Justice Department’s civil rights division under President Barack Obama. "It’s from the playbook. It’ll get more intense as he gets more freaked out."
