There is no way a Trump presidency can exist while the Trump children are running his business.
This was proven just this week when Ivanka Trump used her appearance on 60 Minutes to plug her jewelry line, specifically a bracelet that costs $10,000.

And now, the future first daughter’s company is seemingly backtracking after being accused of conflating her father’s presidential interview with her own personal business.
A “fashion alert” was initially sent to journalists on Monday by Monica Marder, vice president of sales for Ivanka Trump Fine Jewelry. It promoted Ivanka Trump as wearing “her favorite bangle from the Metropolis Collection” on the CBS News show. The bracelet costs $8,800 to $10,800. “Please share this with your clients…” the email said.
As a result, the company was accused of trying to make money off the election results through the interview.
The interview was not the first time Ivanka Trump used her father’s political spotlight to highlight her brand. In July, the former model marketed a blush pink sheath dress she wore at the Republican National Convention. The dress, which retailed at a more affordable $138, quickly sold out.
