The 2016 presidential race was certainly one of the most unusual battles in U.S. history. But, despite the many scandals and tall tales covered in the media, it's safe to say that the world has yet to see a battle quite like the Trump underwear war in China.
Thats right, Chinese industry groups are fighting over Ivanka Trump's name in order to push products like diet pills and underwear. One cosmetic-surgery firm is even working to develop procedures so women can look more like the First Daughter.
Thus far, 258 trademark applications have been filed at the Chinese Trademark Office since Trump moved to the White House. Fortunately, Ivanka has not invested in any of these foreign companies and appears to be straying far away from the situation.
Though, underwear and diet pills are just the tip of the iceberg. The Washington Post reports that some manufacturers are looking to put her name on - milk powder, canned food, honey, candy, coffee, wine and beer; mirrors, mattresses and sofas; medical equipment; and even agricultural technology.
Li Jun, founder of successful Chinese distribution company Foshan Bainuo Sanitary Products said, "I first saw her giving a speech on television to support her father’s election. I was captivated by her incomparable disposition and air, even the way she tucked her hair behind her ear. Her speech was full of elegance and charisma.” They simply can't get enough of the Trump celebrity. Some Chinese citizens may not agree with the family's policies but they still love their style!
As of 2016, Ivanka Trump has moved on from the marketing industry. Once her father was elected, her and her family removed themselves from any ties to her company Ivanka Trump Co. However, the company does have applications pending in China, including 9 approved trademarks under the fashion line. Twenty-six applications are still in processing and three have been rejected.
Liberal boycotters have tried to stop her former company from growing but have ultimately failed thanks to the devotion of Trump fans. After being stripped from department stores, her perfume line soared to number one on Amazon. China's demand for her trademark is further evidence that there are millions of Trump fans out there that are being neglected by the media.
