Ivanka Trump may have found herself at the center of controversy over Ivanka HQ, her fashion business that she separated from before moving to the nation’s capitol.

That time in American history has past. Donald Trump is the president and along with hollowing out American norms, institutions, and reality, he is going to make money from being president. He is making money from being president. Mar-a-Lago, which Trump has dubbed the “Winter White House,” doubled it...
