State Department under fire for retweeting Ivanka Trump's post promoting her new book

Weeks after a State Department website promoted President Trump's Mar-a-Lago club, the department is under fire again.

The Daily Beast reported on Thursday, "the U.S. State Department's Office of Global Women's Issues on Wednesday retweeted the Trump daughter's personal message promoting her book, Women Who Work..."

Ivanka's tweet read, "Thank you to my beautiful sisters for the support of my #WomenWhoWorkBook! @TiffanyATrump @LaraLeaTrump."

Following criticism, the retweet has reportedly been removed by the department.

According to ABC News, "The retweet does not break any laws, ethics experts say, but it could violate federal rules against using public office to promote commercial products or using government resources, like Twitter accounts, for unauthorized purposes."

Ivanka Trump in her new White House role

Amid ongoing scrutiny over possible conflicts of interest between her businesses and her influential role as a top adviser at the White House, Ivanka announced a few weeks ago that she does not plan to go on a promotional tour for her new book.

Ivanka said on her Facebook page on April 20, "Empowering women has been central to my mission throughout my career, and with my book, Women Who Work, I hope to do just that."

She also wrote, "Out of an abundance of caution and to avoid the appearance of using my official role to promote the book, I will not publicize the book through a promotional tour or media appearances."
