Senior White House adviser Ivanka Trump is under fire for violating government ethics rules after she tweeted a photo of herself endorsing Goya Foods while clutching a can of black beans. The first daughter captioned the photo, “If it’s Goya, it has to be good.” Her endorsement came amid a boycott of Goya Foods, sparked by CEO Robert Unanue, who lavished praise on President Trump at a White House event last week. Ivanka Trump’s tweet appears to violate a federal law prohibiting the use of public office for private gain. On Wednesday, as U.S. coronavirus deaths topped 137,000, Donald Trump’s Instagram account tweeted a photo of the president grinning and flashing a “thumbs up” over an array of Goya food products on the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office.
