The first daughter's various social media accounts have been active since she joined the White House in March. An analysis performed by the Journal and celebrity fashion website Star Style found that Ivanka Trump's fashion brand was featured in 68 percent of her Instagram, Facebook and Twitter posts between March and October.


President Trump's eldest daughter placed her company into a trust managed by her brother-in-law Josh Kushner and sister-in-law Nicole Meyer when she took the White House job this year.

Still, a report from July found that Ivanka Trump was making millions from the brand, which recently opened its first brick-and-mortar store in Trump Tower.

In Ivanka Trump's case, however, the first daughter stands to personally benefit from wearing her own clothing line in social media postings.

In a statement to the Journal, Ivanka Trump denied that she sought to grow her business while simultaneously performing White House duties.

“If what motivated me was to grow my businesses and make money, I would have stayed in New York and done just that,” she said.

A spokeswoman for Ivanka Trump's brand stated that Ivanka Trump does not give the company advance warning of her outfits, and that the company does not seek to use her postings in advertising.

The company has not used Ivanka Trump's image in official advertising since an incident in November 2016, for which the company apologized.

In April, Ivanka Trump said she refused to sell her fashion brand because it would allow someone to engage in “licensing and leveraging the name of the 45th president of the United States of America — completely unfettered.”
