Why did Ivanka Trump escape her daddy's tariff pain?

Think Progress - Exempt from the proposed tariffs against China is the clothing manufacturing industry.

Exempting clothing from the tariffs provides a big break to American clothing companies that hold trademarks in China. One of those clothing companies belongs to the First Daughter of the United States, Ivanka Trump.

Her dual role as adviser to the president and private business executive has continuously raised ethical red flags... The clearest example of this ethical line-blurring comes from early in the Trump presidency, when Ivanka dined with Chinese President Xi Jinping at the Trump family’s resort in West Palm Beach on the same day China approved three new trademarks for Ivanka’s company.
