What on earth was this inexperienced, overprivileged, undereducated grifter doing, on the taxpayers' dime, pretending she's some sort of Barbie Doll diplomat?
Trump forces his daughter on the world, and the world laughs at him and her.
Other than hiring people to design earrings and handbags for her label, what has she done? And how does that qualify her to be among the world's leading diplomats and leaders?
Ivanka, like her father, is impressed with herself and her pseudo skills and knowledge as a international player.
"Beyond ridiculous is the only way I can describe this situation.
The Trump progeny have no credentials, no experience, and absolutely no reason to be on their daddy's current business trip. Ivanka can certainly stand around and look elegant, just as her brother, Donald Jr., can be expected to say/tweet comments indicating his astounding ignorance, but, other than their questionable "entertainment value," I see no reason whatsoever (as a taxpayer!) to have to foot the bill for these freeloaders as they travel the world. Pretend diplomats? Hardly. Overindulged children, definitely."
Nepotism at its worst, and problem with nepotism is that it is not merit based. Relatives displace better-qualified people. She is not qualified for this. It is not ok for the US to bring along clearly unqualified people to international gatherings only because they are blood relations.
Chelsea Clinton has a Ph.D. in international relations, Ivanka hires people to design handbags.
