In a Thursday morning interview on “Fox & Friends,” President Trump’s senior adviser, Kellyanne Conway may have violated the federal government’s ethics rules by giving Ivanka Trump a ‘free commercial.’

Following the aftermath of Nordstrom — and other clothing companies, including Belk, Jet, ShopStyle, TJ Maxx, and Marshall’s — dropping Ivanka’s clothing line, President Trump took to Twitter to call out the retailer for “mistreatment” of his daughter.

Trump’s tweet can be seen below:

Conway then followed similar rhetoric to Trump’s during her live video chat interview from the White House. She, essentially, used her platform to promote the Trump’s daughter’s clothing line, insisting consumers “go buy her stuff.”

Conway’s full statement in the interview can be read below:

“Go buy Ivanka’s stuff, is what I would tell you. I hate shopping but I’m going to go get some for myself today. This is just a wonderful line. I own some of it… I’m going to give a free commercial here. Go buy it today, everybody. You can find it online.”

Liberal media outlets are calling foul.  They claim that according to federal government ethics rules, it’s strictly prohibited to use the status of public office for private gain.

Many critics on social media took grievance with Conway using the White House briefing room as a promotional advertisement for Ivanka’s products.

Conway’s statements can be watched in the video below, along with some of the tweets criticizing her actions:
