    Family businesses still pay Ivanka Trump, raising ethics questions

    he president isn't the only Trump with potential conflicts of interest in the White House.

    Donald Trump's daughter Ivanka - a senior White House adviser with such duties as lobbying the Senate on tax policy and representing her father at a Group of 20 summit of world leaders - will collect more than $1 million a year from the family business that has continued to develop luxury resorts around the world during the Trump presidency.

    Some of those Trump-branded developments are hiring state-owned companies for construction, receiving gifts from foreign governments in the form of public land or eased regulations and accepting payments from customers who are foreign officials.

    Ivanka Trump's continued relationship with the businesses affiliated with the Trump Organization creates potential conflicts of interest prohibited by federal law and federal ethics standards as she works as a special assistant to the president. And just like her father, she is being accused of violating the emoluments clause of the U.S. Constitution, which forbids government officials - not just presidents - from accepting gifts from foreign governments without the approval of Congress.

    More evidence that Trump did not become president for any purpose other than his own enrichment.
