House of Cards
Ivanka Trump is closing her clothing brand Ivanka Trump, a Senior White House advisor and daughter to President Trump, announced she would be closing her clothing brand after 18 months in Washington, D.C. Ivanka has faced criticism of having a conflict of interest since joining the White House staff. Former White House National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor and former Obama speechwriter Ben Rhodes attacked Ivanka Trump on their "Pod Save The World" podcast Thursday and compared her to villain Claire Underwood from "House of Cards." Vietor began by citing Ivanka's presence at the G20 summit and mocked her for trying to connect with world leaders.

"I think we can't get over the embarrassment here. The G20 is the most important collection of countries in the world, " he said.
