"While many U.S. companies are spiraling to adjust to Donald Trump's new tariffs on Chinese-made goods, it appears his daughter Ivanka Trump's fashion line is operating without any disturbance. This week, HuffPost reported that Ivanka's Chinese-made fashion products will not be negatively impacted by her father's recent Chinese tax sanctions, which include higher tariffs on medical supplies, auto parts, transportation vehicles, and $34 billion worth of other Chinese-made goods.

Ivanka, who also serves as a senior adviser to the president, stepped down from running her fashion company last January to join her father in the White House.
