Ivanka captioned the pictured displaying the canned black beans in the tweet in both English and Spanish “Si es Goya, it has to be good”.

This possibly is a violation of federal ethics rule that says “An employees position or title should not be used to coerce; endorse any product, service or enterprise or to give the appearance of a governmental sanction”.
In a Rose Garden event last week, Unanue praised Donald Trump saying “We are all truly blessed … to have a leader like President Trump who is a builder.” “We have an incredible builder, and we pray. We pray for our leadership, our president” he added.
Later in a Fox news interview, Unanue said he was “not apologizing”.
