Ivanka Trump tweets with a packet of Goya provokes a backlash
Ivanka Trump faces a violent reaction after she tweets a photo of her carrying a box of Goya. The president's daughter tweet includes the Goya motto, "If it is Goya, it must be good" in English and Spanish. The photo was also posted on her Facebook and Instagram page.

Trump's social media post comes days after Goya CEO Robert Onano praised Mr. Trump during an event last week at the White House. Ono said: "We all really enjoy at the same time that we have a leader like President Trump, who is a builder."

Unanue's comments sparked calls for Goya, which sees itself as the largest Spanish-owned food company in the United States, in response, Unanue said he "does not apologize" and described the #BoycottGoya campaign as an attempt to "suppress speech".

Many on Twitter asked if Trump's tweet would add to Goya's problems.

Others have questioned Trump's ethics, apparently endorsing Goya's products by using the company's logo in a tweet and holding a box of black beans.

Representative Alexandria Okacio Cortez also tweeted about potential conflicts of interest, writing in Spanish that "if Trump is, he must be corrupt."

According to the Ministry of Justice, “An employee may not use his public office for his own gain or for the benefit of the persons or organizations with which he is personally associated. The employee’s position or title of coercion may not be used to support any product, service, or enterprise, or to give an appearance of government sanctions. "

According to the White House website, Trump and her husband Jared Kushner are advisers to the president.

In 2017, Killian Conway, Mr Trump's advisor, was investigated in a similar incident when she encouraged Americans to buy Ivanka Trump's branded products after they were dropped from Nordstrom stores. Conway was acquitted of any wrongdoing, as Deputy Presidential Adviser on Compliance and Ethics Stephen Basantino said she "acted unintentionally" and "without a sinister motivation."
