Majority says Ivanka, Kushner's White House roles inappropriate

Following the approval of the trademarks, Ivanka Trump and her husband dined with Jinping and his wife at their father's Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.

The AP said three had been filed, including one for jewelry. That clears the way for Ivanka's jewelry, bags and spa services to be sold to a market that includes more than 1.3 billion people.

The Trump Organization, meanwhile, recently won Chinese trademarks of its own. According to The Guardian, they received preliminary approval for 38 trademarks in areas like hospitality, mining, construction, and even escort services earlier this year. He says normally it takes 18 months to two years to have a trademark registration application issued. Even since her father took office, her own fashion brand has continued to look overseas, filing four new trademarks in Canada and the Philippines, according to a New York Times analysis of trademark records. As the AP report shows, Ivanka Trump could also be seen as trying to curry favor with world leaders in order to help promote and expand her brand.

Her brand said in a statement that Trump herself did not sign off on the new applications, adding they are "not necessarily" an indication of planned expansion.

China has defended how it handled trademark applications by the company of First Daughter Ivanka Trump, saying the matter was handled fairly and equally. Since Donald Trump was elected president, sales of Ivanka Trump merchandise have surged, and her company has applied for several new trademarks in the Philippines, Puerto Rico, Canada and the USA, signs that the commercial engine of her brand is still humming even as the first daughter builds a new career from her West Wing office.

Ivanka Trump resigned from management at her clothing and accessories company to take a job in her father's administration.

"She is very amiable, with a tender disposition, and not like her father who is quite unpredictable", said Geng Baoqiang, 36, a senior manager at a foreign investment company.

Her attorney, Jamie Gorelick, told CNN last month that the assets have been moved into a trust - the best choice from a hard series of options. She and her husband Jared Kushner are constantly portrayed as a kind of collective voice of calm, poise, and reason, who are prevailing over the tempestuous Stephen Bannon and his efforts to push President Donald Trump over the edge of the precipice of extremism. Unlike President Trump, his daughter is subject to federal rules that prohibit her from participating in matters in which she has a financial interest.

Divided between gender, she's also more popular with men, 37% of whom view her favorably, versus 32% of women, with margins of error of plus or minus 4.1% points and 4.5% points, respectively. Trump also maintains a stake in the Trump International Hotel in Washington, just down the street from the White House.

Ivanka Trump is fast becoming a cult figure for many in China, her popularity spiking so much there is already an online fan club dedicated to "Goddess Ivanka" with thousands of followers.
