Ivanka Trump holds an important position in her father, Donald Trump's administration. She serves as her father's adviser on issues particularly concerning women and children. She sits in meetings with Heads of States like Justine Trudeau of Canada, Angela Merkel of Britain and Shinzo Abe of Japan.

Ivanka is the dynamic person behind their family business, heading the Trump Organization, and representing her father in the family's businesses overseas.

Recently, the White House adviser was criticized for being actively involved in the management of their various businesses despite that fact that she manages them through a trust. Decision-making and major functions still belong to Ivanka Trump. Aside from her family's businesses, she and her husband Jared Kushner, also a White House staff, continues to operate their business in different parts of the world especially China.

Ms.Trump continues to have her own trademarks approved by different countries like Japan, China, Europe and the Philippines as reported by New York Times. She has been accused of breaking government ethics code by working at the White House and at the same time running her business. This was seen as a conflict of interest for her part although her father being the president is exempted.

According to Newsweek, managing both the business and her White House job could further complicate the presidency which has become controversial because of his businesses all over the world.

Ivanka's father's first year in the office has proved to be beneficial for Ivanka Trump's business assets. Imports of her merchandise across the globe and in China have surged, her perfume was the No. 1 seller on Amazon, and her sales have already reached record highs in 2017 during her father's first 100 days in office.

Norman Eisen, a former White House ethics lawyer said that she should have discontinued her transactions with China. He added, "For their own sake, and the country's, Ivanka and Jared should consider stepping away from China matters."
