Ivanka Trump was persecuted because of the advertising of black beans

Advisor to the presidential administration and daughter of Donald trump Ivanka may appear before the ethics committee. And all because of the picture in which she holds a tin can with black beans in her hands, whose producer is the Spanish company Goya.

In the commentary on the photo, she left a concise note in English and Spanish: "If it's Goya, it has to be good".

The post was published after the brand was boycotted by users of social networks and some Spanish leaders in response to the eulogy of the CEO of the company to President Trump, which he delivered last week.

We are all truly blessed ... to have a leader like President Trump who is a builder. We have an incredible builder, and we pray. We pray for our leadership, our president.”he said.

Commenting on his speech later, the general director of the company stated that he was not going to apologize and called the boycott “suppression of speech”.

Last Wednesday, July 15, the president supported the brand by uploading a photo that shows himself in his office and the company's products - cans with beans, coconut milk, and chocolate waffles.

In a commentary on the picture, Trump wrote that the company works perfectly and compared the attacks of the extreme left with madness.

However, his daughter violated federal ethical standards because of a similar photo, according to the US Ethics Administration, whose goal is to "prevent a conflict of interest in the executive branch."

“Executive branch employees may not use their Government positions to suggest that the agency or any part of the executive branch endorses an organization (including a nonprofit organization), product, service, or person,”  the office's guideline says.

Trump spokeswoman Carolina Hurley defended Ivanka, saying that she demonstrated “personal support” for the brand: “Ivanka is proud of this strong, Hispanic-owned business with deep roots in the US and has every right to express her personal support.”

However, Walter Schaub, former director of the Ethics Administration at the government, regards Ivanka’s tweet as a violation.

He noted that while the president’s and his daughter’s Twitter and Instagram accounts are positioned as personal pages, “it was  a bad idea to include your title in the bio because that's a factor weighing in favor of finding a violation occurred. If, as Ivanka Trump does, you use an otherwise personal social media account to tout official activities of the administration, that's another factor.”

Thus, it will be difficult for Ivanka to prove that the post was personal and, most likely, she would have to face proceedings. Another thing is her father, to whom these restrictions do not apply, writes CNN .
