Government-funded news agency Voice Of America has posted a story about first daughter Ivanka Trump’s new book, “Women Who Work: Rewriting the Rules for Success” on its website.

The agency also tweeted a link to the story, written by The Associated Press, from its official Twitter account. It describes the book as “a breezy compilation of workplace advice, stories about her dealmaker dad and a hefty dose of celebrity namedropping.”

In New Book, Ivanka Trump Gets Serious About Women at Work

{mosads}Voice of America often posts articles from the AP and other news sources. But posting a story about Trump’s book raises questions about the president and his family using government sources to promote private business interests.

Trump even addresses those worries in her book. The AP story notes that she has “opted not to do any publicity to avoid any suggestion that she is improperly using her White House platform.”

She is also donating proceeds from the book to charity.
