image for China Approves 5 New Trademarks For Ivanka Trump Business As President Forges ZTE Deal

Ivanka Trump’s business has won approval from the Chinese government for at least five new trademarks.

The approval came just days before President Donald Trump announced he was working on a controversial deal to drop U.S. prohibitions against China cellphone manufacturer ZTE.

The trademarks grant Ivanka Trump operations exclusive rights to market a variety of products in China that could potentially amount to millions of dollars in profits.

Ivanka Trump Marks LLC received approval last year for several other trademarks after she began working in the White House.

Three of them were granted the same day she dined with Chinese President Xi Jinping at Mar-a-Lago.

The applications for the trademarks were submitted over a year ago, and the trademark registrations were accepted May 7.

Just five days later Trump announced he was working on a deal to lift U.S. business barriers against ZTE in order to save Chinese jobs. »
