Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner invited to visit China

Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump are considering visiting Beijing following an invitation from the Chinese government, the White House confirmed Friday.

The invitation, first reported on Tuesday, is meant to facilitate a future trip by President Trump to the country. The president's elder daughter and son-in-law were verbally invited by Chinese President Xi Jinping during his stay at Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort in April, and the invitation was the formal extension of that offer.

Kushner and Ivanka Trump, both senior advisers at the White House, also hosted Terry Branstad, Trump's newly appointed ambassador to China, at Trump Hotel in Washington, D.C., last weekend, according to Bloomberg News. Branstad, formerly the Republican governor of Iowa, is expected to arrive in China next week as he assumes his role as Trump's ambassador.

Kushner has been under increased scrutiny in recent months for his foreign work following reports that he attempted to set up a secret backchannel for communications with Russia during the transition period after the election. Meanwhile, Ivanka Trump's fashion line, which has a shoe factory in China, has recently been criticized for labor rule violations
