Two years ago, when Trump took office, there was little evidence of a toy company in the Oval Office.
Now, with Trump’s White House under scrutiny, we’re finding out just how close he is to one of the biggest toy companies in the world.
But who is the biggest player in the toy industry?
According to an analysis by The New York Times, toy company Hasbro has been in the news a lot during the last two years.
As recently as last November, when the company released a campaign video for the new Trump toy line, a reporter tweeted out a tweet saying that the campaign had paid Hasbro to produce the campaign ad.
That tweet prompted the company to pull the ad.
The tweet came after the company’s CEO, John Levenson, publicly declared his support for Trump.
Levensons endorsement was met with backlash from critics.
Hasbro has also made a splash in the presidential race in recent months.
In February, the company partnered with Hillary Clinton to promote her presidential campaign.
While the deal was ultimately not finalized, it did include an endorsement for the former secretary of state.
In addition to Clinton, Hasbro also has partnered with Bernie Sanders and Democratic presidential candidate Martin O’Malley.
“The President’s vision of a strong middle class is one that Hasbro shares,” Levensen said in a statement.
“With the help of President Trump, the toys we create will benefit working families and strengthen our communities.”
According to a New York Times analysis of corporate filings, Hasbrook has had at least seven executives who were involved in the Trump administration.
While the company has not officially endorsed a candidate in the race, it is rumored that the company is supporting Hillary Clinton.
For more than a decade, HasBro has been a supporter of the president, donating at least $20,000 to the Clinton Foundation and $1 million to his campaign, according to The Times.
As Trump takes office, he has faced criticism for his ties to Hasbro.
The company has been accused of supporting his daughter Ivanka Trump, and it has been criticized for supporting his controversial immigration policy.
Since the election, Hasbro has been sued for violating its fiduciary duty to its employees.
