After more than a decade in the fashion industry, Ivanka Trump is leaving her namesake brand behind to focus on policy in Washington.
On Tuesday, the Wall Street Journal reported that the first daughter was shutting down her clothing and shoe collection due to her growing frustrations over ethics complaints and accusations of conflicts of interest that pervaded the collection.
Although Trump’s eldest daughter—and special assistant to the president—formally separated from the day to day operations of her fashion brand over a year ago, Ivanka still owned the company through a trust.
Here’s a timeline of some of the biggest headlines affecting the company in recent years
UNDER THE WARM ASPHALT of West Los Angeles, beneath bumper-to-bumper traffic and swaying palm trees, Elon Musk is searching for answers. There, a boring machine named Godot may soon grind away at a 2.7-mile tunnel to run below Interstate 405, a key reason that L.A. retains its crown as the U.S. city with the worst traffic.
The market opened Tuesday morning with Goldman Sachs Group Inc. shares up .61, or .26% at 232.05 shortly after the company announced veteran investment banker David Solomon would replace Lloyd Blankfein as CEO and chairman in October. Pre-market shares spiked 1.27% to 234.38 at 7:31 a.m. ET.
Lions and tigers and bears, oh my—but not before a security checkpoint.

In the latest allegation of Scott Pruitt using his political office for personal gain, former policy chief at the Environmental Protection Agency, Samantha Dravis, revealed to a congressional committee that Pruitt asked her to help find his wife, Marlyn, a job with a six-figure salary.
According to an individual with knowledge of the matter, Dravis told congressional staffers that Pruitt asked her to reach out to the Republican Attorneys General Association—a group he chaired for two terms while he was Oklahoma Attorney General—to look into a possible fundraising job which he believed would pay his wife upwards of $200,000 a year.
