The kerfuffle over Nordstroms cancelling Ivanka Trumps line highlights what I believe to be the biggest fault Trump has - his lack of grace, couth, and not knowing where he has no authority. Naturally, and rightly so, the media has attacked him and will no doubt continue to go over his behaviors with a fine-toothed, SJW comb. But the problem with Ivanka's clothing line made me realize something about the Trump presidency, and more so his children.
They're not losers.
And not only are they not losers, they're entrepreneurs.
This begets a whole host of potential conflicts of interest, back room dealing, and speculation about nepotism, but it also highlights a problem the American public has not had to deal with when it comes to presidential children in the past. Since Trump has trained his children to be businessmen, women, and entrepreneurs, this otherwise admirable trait, by necessity will call into question whether their dad is pulling strings for them or not. Every business move they make, every investment they take, America will be watching them. And there will always be the specter that Trump is somehow unfairly benefiting them through the office of the president.
But let's think about this for a second.
Had Trump's kids been the mere trust fund baby, spoiled brats that previous presidents' children have been, would America have batted an eye? Admittedly, a lot of this has to do with the fact that Trump is older and his children are adults (contrasted to say the Clinton's, Obama's, and Bush Jr's children), but if Trump's kids had been the typical blue blood losers and NOT the movers and shakers he brought them up to be, would their entrepreneurial endeavors even be in the news?
The truth is Trump should not be disgracing the office of the presidency by getting involved in his childrens' businesses. But the fact they have businesses in the first place to even get involved in is a step up from the "Chelsea the Magic 26 Year Old Hedge Fund Manager Clinton" or the Bush Trust Fund League children that we're typical of seeing in American politics.
