Ivanka Trump 'signed up to an exercise class under an alias' and the owner isn't happy
The owner of a gym studio has lashed out at Ivanka Trump for reportedly signing up to an exercise class under an alias.
The US First Daughter is said to have signed up to a Solidcore class in Washington D.C using a different name, according to owner Anne Malhum.
While department stores including Nordstom, Neiman Marcus, Sears and K-mart have all dropped her eponymous fashion line, all crediting poor sales, which seems to be reflective of her father's increasingly controversial policies; most businesses are careful about forging any new relationships with the Trumps.
Which is why Malhum was particularly upset about Ivanka joining her class.
She wrote a statement on Facebook, saying she asked for a meeting with the mother-of-three.
"What you do when you find out Ivanka Trump just took [Solidcore], but used an alias to sign up for class? You reach out and ask for a meeting.
"While I don’t know her and I always seek to understand...I do know her father is threatening the rights of many of my beloved clients and coaches and as a business owner, I take my responsibility to protect and fight for my people very seriously."
She received backlash for "outing" Trump, Malhum responded that some of her employees and clients had been "adversely effected, directly or indirectly, by the President’s decisions."
Meanwhile, on Sunday night, K-Mart and Sears said they will also be pulling her ranges from its stores, but some lines are available online.
A spokesman for Sears Holdings Corporation told ABC News in a statement: "As part of the company’s initiative to optimize its online product assortment, we constantly refine that assortment to focus on our most profitable items.
"Amid that streamlining effort, 31 Trump Home items were among the items removed online this week. Products from the line are still offered online via third-party Marketplace vendors. Neither Sears nor Kmart carries the line in brick-and-mortar stores."
