An activist investigating a company that manufactures shoes for Ivanka Trump and other Western brands has been detained by police in China -- and two of his colleagues remain unaccounted for.
The activists were working undercover at two factories in southern China, according to China Labor Watch, the New York-based advocacy group for which they were carrying out the investigation. It lost contact with them on Saturday.
... Li said he is sending video footage shot by Su at the Jiangxi factory to Ivanka Trump's company.
"We appeal to President Trump, Ivanka Trump herself, and to her related brand company to advocate and press for the release our activists," he said.
There's nothing to suggest that Ivanka Trump has any connection to what happened to the China Labor Watch investigators. She resigned from her management role at the clothing and accessories company when she took a job in her father's administration, but she still owns part of the business.
