US girl accessory retailer says it won’t carry Ivanka Trump’s products

The American Girl accessories store says it is not carrying Ivanka Trump products. 

The company announced the decision after being asked by The Associated Press to comment on its decision to pull Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner’s jewelry from its shelves. 

“It’s disappointing that we’re not in the same situation as some of our competitors,” American Girl owner Susan Schmid told the AP. 

She also said the brand would continue to stock items that were made in China. 

Schmid said she planned to continue to support the company by selling the Ivanka Trump collection. 

Trump, the daughter of President Donald Trump and her husband Jared Kushner, has been criticized by critics for her business dealings, including her partnership with her father in a luxury hotel in Beijing. 

A spokesperson for the president did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Schmid is the latest prominent American Girl brand to pull products from the White House since Trump took office in January. 

In April, The Wall Street Journal reported that Ivanka Trump had been asked to resign from her role as chairwoman of the Trump Organization, citing her financial conflicts of interest. 

Last month, The AP reported that American Girl would be selling Ivanka Trump jewelry to make ends meet. 

And on Saturday, Trump said that he is no longer considering Ivanka Trump for a Cabinet position. 

 “Ivanka has never been one of my top choices for Secretary of State,” Trump said in a statement. 

American Girl was founded in 1982 by Sarah M. Schmid and Julie W. Stahl. 

They began selling products in 1992.
