Conway says Trump has her back amid Ivanka comment controversy

"It is just a wonderful line".

The White House has "counselled" a top aide to President Donald Trump after she promoted Ivanka Trump's fashion line during a national cable television appearance from the White House.

"I hate shopping, and I'm going to go get some myself today", the counselor to the President told the hosts of "Fox and Friends".

The announcement led to an online rebuke from Donald Trump who on Wednesday tweeted: "My daughter Ivanka has been treated so unfairly by @Nordstrom".

Kellyanne Conway, a special adviser to the President and former manager of Trump's election campaign, was on Fox and Friends this morning when the topic of Ivanka's retail woes came up.

"This endorsement of specific merchandise would appear to violate ethics laws and regulations, which clearly bar federal employees from endorsing any product or enterprise for private gain", the senators said.

Nordstrom said last week that it would no longer carry Ivanka Trump's line of clothing and accessories because of "brand performance".

On Saturday , there is a chance of snow before 8 a.m. "Sleet may mix briefly during the transition from rain to snow". The snow, according to the weather service, will start Thursday morning and last through the day into the evening.

Nordstrom reportedly plans to stop carrying Ivanka Trump's line of womenswear due to flagging sales.

Maryland democratic congressmen, Elijah Cummings said Conway's pitch for the line "appears to be a textbook violation of government ethics laws and regulations".

Later on MSNBC, Eisen accused Conway of breaking §2635.702, which forbids "use of public office for private gain". "Terrible!" Mr Trump tweeted on Wednesday. In fact, the company's stock price had climbed more than 7% (as of Thursday afternoon) since Trump tweeted his displeasure with the company. Trump is making an unnanounced trip to Dover Air Force bace in DE to pay his respects to Chief Special Warfare Operator William "Ryan" Owens, who was killed during a raid in Yemen.

Federal employees are banned from using their public office to endorse products.

Mr. Trump's complaint also raised questions about how he might handle the moves of numerous other companies as their relationships with Trump brands change.

The Trump administration has faced repeated criticism for an apparent lack of concern over possible conflicts of interest over his personal business empire.
