Recently, the CEO of Goya Foods appeared at a White House event. There, he thanked the president for his support.
Liberals, shocked that a Hispanic-American businessman would support Trump, called for a boycott of the company.
Democrats tried to shut down a Hispanic-owned company, because of politics. Let that sink in.
Conservatives quickly rallied to support Goya Foods. Ivanka Trump even showed support for Goya.
What did Democrats do next? They want to investigate the president’s daughter:
Sens. Tom Carper (D-Del.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) penned a letter to the Office of Government Ethics requesting answers to a list of questions including what disciplinary actions can be taken against Ivanka Trump…
Carper and Warren pointed out the rule enforced by the Office of Government Ethics against misuse of a position held in public office.
Former presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren and Sen. Tom Carper sent a letter to the Office of Government Ethics, demanding an investigation into Ivanka’s tweet.
Both senators are Democrats. They appear to be accusing Ivanka Trump of violating ethics codes, for simply supporting a company recently praised the United States.
These Democrats appear to be suggesting that Ivanka was either influenced or encouraged to do this. Or perhaps she is showing a conflict of interest, as an advisor to the president.
But it appears these Democrats are themselves showing bias, given the circumstances.
Elected officials frequently voice support for companies, products, and services. That’s especially true when companies back the political agenda of a leader.
Government is frequently partnering with the private sector. So, why are Warren and Carper so upset?
Considering what transpired over Goya Foods recently, Ivanka was supporting the company to combat calls for a boycott.
It is unlikely she was violating ethics rules or revealing a conflict of interest.
Given Warren’s history—and the fact that it is an election year—these smacks of an underhanded attempt by Democrats to slander the presidents’ family.
Democrats and the media have routinely attacked Trump, his wife, and his children. There appears to be no limit to what they will do or say to hurt the president’s closest loved ones.
What will result of this request remains to be seen.
- Democrats demand an ethics investigation against Ivanka Trump, one of the president’s advisors.
- Warren and Carper accuse Ivanka over a tweet featuring Goya Foods.
- This comes after liberals tried to shut down Goya with a boycott.
