Ivanka Trump, daughter of Trump, singlehandedly violated the federal ethics laws by posing with a can of Goya beans. She posted the picture on Tuesday and mentioned the company slogan in the caption. For those who don’t know, federal officials are forbidden from using their position to promote any product. And considering she’s the senior advisor to her father, this was something.
The CEO of Goya – Robert Unanue is a huge Trump supporter. In fact, he’s the one who received major backlash when he told a press conference that the country is "truly blessed... to have a leader like President Trump."
After this statement, the Hispanic community boycotted this product despite the fact that this is a staple product in every Hispanic household.
To show his support, Trump Tweeted: "The Radical Left smear machine backfired, people are buying like crazy!"
Of course, there is no data or evidence to support that Goya sales were actually up. Classic Trump!

Hospitals are overflowing with critical patients, parents are terrified that the schools are reopening, there’ major uproar and violence on the streets, but Trump is busy promoting Goya beans on his social media.
Oh Trump, why are you like this?
