San Francisco fashion boutique Modern Appealing Clothing, known as MAC (not the makeup brand), filed a class action lawsuit in the San Francisco Superior Court on Thursday. The lawsuit claims that Ivanka Trump gets an unfair advantage in the marketplace because by leveraging power and prestige of the White House to promote her handbags.
The suit alleges that Ivanka Trump The Brand is getting an unfair advantage "from Donald J. Trump being the President of the United States and from Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared, working for the President of the United States."
There's no doubt that Ivanka Trump The Brand has gotten extra attention recently, especially from the White House. President Trump famously took time out of being Commander in Chief to blast Nordstrom, which discontinued selling Ivanka's line.
