President-elect Donald Trump's proposed 35 percent tariff may hit close to home and could end up hurting daughter Ivanka's business.
In a series of tweets Sunday, Trump said any business that leaves the country would face "retribution or consequence." The Ivanka Trump Collection has several imported dresses listed on its website, implying they are manufactured abroad.
@JuddLegum: Dear @realDonaldTrump Will you impose a 35% tariff on the Ivanka Trump Collection? She's manufacturing clothes abroad, importing to US
Harvard Law professor Robert Lawrence had previously conducted an analysis of Ivanka Trump's clothing items and accessories. Of 832 examined, he found at least 628 were imported, including 354 made in China.
Earlier this year, the Consumer Product Safety Commission recalled 20,000 Ivanka Trump scarves because they did not meet federal flammability standards and posed "a burn risk" for the people wearing them.
A spokesperson for the Ivanka Trump brand said the brand is interested in bringing more manufacturing jobs to the U.S. and looks forward to being a part of the conversation.
