Ivanka Trump's Business Wins Approval for 16 New Chinese Trademarks Despite Shutting Down

Presidential adviser Ivanka Trumpís fashion brand won first trial approval for 16 new trademarks from the Chinese government in October. These approvals come about three months after Ivanka announced that her brand was shutting down, and mark the largest number of new Chinese trademarks she has received in a single month since President Donald Trump took office.

Ivanka announced the immediate closure of her brand in July 2018, citing her official government responsibilities in Washington, DC. However, her trademarks remain a potential conflict of interest as she continues to work on policy in the White House and meet with foreign leaders.

Despite shutting down, Ivanka Trumpís brand will continue to seek new trademarks, according to public reports. This leaves open the possibility that she could resume her business after leaving her role in the White House. She retains ownership over all of her existing trademarks, and many of her trademarks will remain active as late as 2028.

The newest Chinese trademarks cover fashion items including handbags, shoes, wedding dresses, and jewelry. (Ivankaís business has previously relied on a Chinese manufacturer to supply handbags, shoes, and clothing.) The trademarks also cover items including nursing homes, sausage casing, and voting machines. Ivankaís business applied for these trademarks in 2016.

Is that kosher? How and why do you trademark sausage casings?

6. Collagen and plant-based casings are kosher, as are beef intestines...

I might call the brand "Trump's Guts".

For more than you ever want to know about sausage casings:

5. Hopefully she'll be in prison and/or bankrupt before she reaps any rewards from this.
