President Trump Wednesday receiving dozens of new Trump trademarks in China. He applied for them while campaigning for office.
FOX's Alastair Wanklyn reports from the Asia Bureau:
China granting preliminary approval for 38 new brands, from Trump hotels and insurance to Trump golf clubs, bodyguards and even escort services. That's according to the Associated Press, citing Chinese government documents.
The President applied for the trademarks in April last year, while he was running for office. It is unclear if there's a conflict of interest, as the U.S. Constitution bans the President from accepting anything of value from a foreign government.
But a lawyer who represents the Trump Organization in China is quoted saying, "it's a good idea to take out trademarks defensively, even if the owner has no plan to use them."
