White House Officials Under Fire Again for Promoting Ivanka’s New Book (Tweets)

Media, News, Politics

Ethic rules NEVER seem to apply to the White House when it comes to the Trumps! On Tuesday, Ivanka Trump released her latest book ‘Women Who Work‘.

@GenderAtState, which is an Official State Department Twitter account, decided to retweet a tweet promoting the new book.

The tweet, which has since been deleted (no surprise there), shows a side-by-side photo of the Trump sisters, Tiffany and Lara, reading (more like pretending to read) the book in support of their sibling.

 

According to CNN, @GenderAtState is run by the Office of Global Women’s Issues, a policy office within the State Department focused on women’s rights and empowerment through foreign policy.

You would think the State Department would learn their lesson after being under fire less than two weeks ago for a blog post that pushed President Donald Trump’s personally owned private Florida club, Mar-a-Lago.

Last month the heiress posted a message on her Facebook that insisted she would follow ethic rules. She suggested that she would not use her official role in the White House (doing nothing) to promote the book.

“In light of government ethics rules, I want to be clear that this book is a personal project. I wrote it at a different time in my life, from the perspective of an executive and an entrepreneur, and the manuscript was completed before the election last November.”

“Out of an abundance of caution and to avoid the appearance of using my official role to promote the book, I will not publicize the book through a promotional tour or media appearances.”

Meanwhile at the White House, the President didn’t get that memo. He took time away from firing away his twitter finger about the nation’s issues to promote his daughter’s book. His promotion on social media included a retweet from the State Department tweet that’s already in question.

So what will come of Trump breaking the ethic laws…again? Probably just a tweet from the @realDonaldTrump account promoting more failing Trump merchandise.
