|Rabbit tortured in Chinese fur farm|
What most Americans do not realize is the lovely soft-spoken president's daughter, wife and mother runs a company that skins rabbits, many while still alive, to make hats.
The Ivanka Trump company "sells hats with pompoms made of fur from rabbits killed in China received a letter from PETA revealing that rabbits live in urine-encrusted cages before they are hit, hung up and skinned – sometimes while still alive."

PETA and other animal rights groups have begged Trump for years to stop this cruel practice, but their pleadings have fallen on deaf ears.
The Chinese fur farms used by Ivanka Trump's company have been investigated for cruelty. "Every single fur farm that PETA Asia has visited in China has been exceptionally cruel: A previous investigation in China revealed that rabbits were shocked with electrical devices, causing them to scream in pain. Investigators have also witnessed foxes being electrocuted, dogs bludgeoned to death, and raccoon dogs skinned alive. Selling fur from China – where there are no penalties for abusing animals on fur farms – means supporting the worst kind of unabated cruelty to animals."
Ms. Trump often peddles her daughter, Arabella, into state meetings to recite and sing songs in Chinese. It appears the Trump presidency has been quite lucrative for the beanie business.
The Trump family's White House presence has enabled Ivanka Trump to secure priceless Chinese trademarks to promote her business. How many millions has Ivanka Trump made from these Chinese business deals?
Not only are animals being cruelly abused, but outcry over low pay and long hours have dogged Ivanka Trump industries. The Washington Post reports, "workers at a factory in China used by the company that makes clothing for Ivanka Trump’s fashion line and other brands worked nearly 60 hours a week to earn wages of little more than $62 a week, according to a factory audit."
According to the House Rabbit Society "the 2012 American Pet Products Association (APPA) Pet Owners Survey, 2.5 million households now live with rabbits, who remain the favorite pet of the “small animals,” and, because they are often spayed and neutered, live as multiples in many homes. They also count 18 million small animals living in American homes, with rabbits being the most popular of those. That same year, the AVMA did their survey again, but found only 1.2% of American households (or 1.2 million American households) living with about 3 million rabbits."

A petition has been created to raise awareness of Ivanka Trump's companies' animal abuse. Do you approve of an animal abuser of this magnitude representing fellow Americans in the White House?
