First Daughter Ivanka Trump garners a lot of criticism.

From her unqualified position as a White House adviser to her and husband Jared Kushner's $135 million earnings while on the White House staff to her attending and interrupting meetings with world leaders to trademarks and patents for voting machines and other products from China—all exempt from daddy's tariffs—liberals and conservatives find plenty to call out about Ivanka's job at the White House.


Now the former head of the United States Office of Government Ethics is calling a trip by Ivanka to Dubai a corporate event funded by taxpayers. The Trump Organization is promoting the third anniversary of their Dubai golf club and Ivanka's visit.


People once again noted that President Donald Trump and Republicans made much of a private citizen being hired by a private company while his father was Vice President.

FYI, that's favoritism on the part of the private company for hiring the child of a famous person, not nepotism by the parent.

Let's take a closer look at that mountain next to the mole hill.

People were appalled at the money spent by taxpayers to promote and profit Trump Organization properties.

Others pointed out Ivanka's lack of training, credentials or qualifications to be an official spokesperson for the United States at gatherings of international world leaders.

Others once again asked, what exactly is Ivanka's job at the White House?




Trump currently faces a lawsuit for violating the emoluments clause of the Constitution.

It bars federal officials from accepting payments from foreign interests or governments. The clause guards against conflicts of interest when a President decides between personal profits and the interests of the nation.

The Trump Organization has plans for a second golf course in Dubai.
