First Lady Melania Trump’s White House Bio Promotes Her Products

A lengthy biography posted on whitehouse.gov highlights Melania Trump’s jewelry line, yet another example of the newly-minted first family plugging their product in political, and now official, settings.

“In April 2010, Melania Trump launched her own jewelry collection, ‘Melania™ Timepieces & Jewelry’, on QVC,” the bio notes, after listing a slew of modeling gigs and philanthropic positions.

Previously, President Donald Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, came under fire for plugging her own products following campaign appearances. After her speech at the Republican National Convention, Ivanka Trump advertised the dress she’d worn during the speech on her Twitter page. Reporters also received an email from a representative of her company advertising the bracelet she wore during the Trump family’s first post-election interview.

At his first press conference on Thursday, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer also hawked Trump’s Washington, D.C. hotel to reporters.

“It’s a beautiful place. It’s somewhere that he’s very proud of. And I think it’s symbolic of the kind of government he’s going to run,” Spicer said. “It’s an absolutely stunning hotel. I encourage you to go there if you haven’t been by.”
