The White House web site is promoting Melania Trump's jewelry line

Why am I even surprised at this? Right there on First Lady Melania Trump's official biography page, there is a mention of her having a jewelry and watch line on a certain television channel. Surely that has to be a conflict of interest to be promoting your business on a government-run web site?

She's not the president. The president can't do it.

It is a government-run web site. It is inappropriate. I bet it doesn't last long on there.

@NJChicaa I suppose that any page has been closely controlled by lawyers before putting it online, so I would bet the opposite.

@NJChicaa It will be interesting to see how long it's on there or if it is forced down. I don't think it will be though.

You are a bit picky, it is just a biography, I do not see why she would not mention that.

What she sells and where she sells it? on a government web site? Inappropriate.

@NJChicaa A first lady does not have to fulfill any official task and is not paid, do you think that she should stop to sell jewelry or to not tell a word about her job ? I do not want to defend Trump and his family, but I think that you are going too far.

@topffer oh she can still sell her jewelry of course. But mentioning where to buy it on a government-run web site is inappropriate in my opinion.

They mention so many details about her so it seems to follow the rest of the biography. But they could have left the brand name out of the bio.

Not really, since they are just facts...now, if there were links to them, I would be pissed.

I think a mention more like "and she is a successful jewelry designer" would be more appropriate.
