A White House spokesman says top adviser Kellyanne Conway has been "counseled" after she urged people to buy Ivanka Trump products during an interview on Fox News.
Sean Spicer says: "She's been counseled, and that's all we're going to say."
Conway spoke on Fox News Thursday morning from the White House briefing room. She encouraged people to "go buy Ivanka's stuff." She made the comments a day after Trump attacked Nordstrom on Twitter for dropping his daughter's fashion line.
While Trump himself is not subject to the standards of ethical conduct for federal employees, Conway is. Among the rules: An employee shall not use his or her office "for the endorsement of any product, service or enterprise."
Spicer was also asked about a Reuters report that President Trump in his recent phone call with Russian President Vladimir Putin denounced the START treaty, calling it a "bad deal."
Spicer refused to comment on the question, saying the "president's conversation with President Putin is a private call between the two of them and I'm going to leave it at that."
On Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch, the White House spokesman said President Trump has "no regrets" about the pick, despite reports that Gorsuch told Senators he was "disheartened" by Trump's denigration of federal judges.
