Ivanka Trump Cancels Book Tour Over 'Government Ethics' Concerns

Just Ivanka: As her fame skyrockets, Trump daughter launches legal battle to protect her first name

IVANKA TRUMP has been clear about her reasons for pulling out of her forthcoming tour for the book she penned prior to her father, Donald, becoming president past year, telling People that she doesn't want it to become a conflict of interest having officially joined the Trump administration. "I wrote it at a different time in my life, from the perspective of an executive and an entrepreneur, and the manuscript was completed before the election last November", Ivanka wrote in a Facebook post Thursday afternoon.

She will also donate her quarter million dollar book advance to a variety of charities, including the Boys and Girls Clubs of America and the National Urban League. She is now an official, unpaid federal employee - a role she took after Democratic lawmakers said in March that her previously unspecified position raised questions about how she'd avoid conflicts.

Ivanka Trump, right, walks with her husband, Jared Kushner, senior adviser to the president, to a news conference with President Donald Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, at the White House in Washington.

Ivanka has been the subject of a few ethics concerns, most notably when Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway told consumers in February 2017 to buy clothing from Ivanka's personal line after Nordstrom announced they would no longer carry it, according to Newsweek.

Trump said her book aims to supply advice and tips on leadership, entrepreneurship, juggling work and family and building cultures where multidimensional women can thrive now and in the future. But as the book's publication nears, Ivanka's new line of work-and the strict federal ethics guidelines that come with it-has complicated the usual promotional tour she had planned.

"This is a new situation so far as her relationship and her status", Brand said of Trump, who is subject to federal ethics rules.

Earlier this month, Ivanka's stake in a D.C. hotel renewed ethical concerns.
