Ivanka Trump has come into a position of prominence after her father’s ascent to the White House, but she’s not using her influence much better than her dad is.
On Wednesday, the member of the presidential family hosted a roundtable discussion on stopping human trafficking. The discussion included a number of legislative leaders who, according to CNN, have long been working on the issue of putting a stop to human trafficking. Those legislative leaders included House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Democratic Sens. Amy Klobuchar and Heidi Heitkamp, along with non-governmental experts on the issue.
Of the meeting, Ivanka commented:
‘We have been conducting interagency meetings to understand the scope of the issue (of human trafficking), as well as gathering recommendations from the academic, public and private sector. Today, we bring an additional and critical group to the table, legislative leaders, to discuss concrete steps through legislation.’
Unsurprisingly, since, one, this is the 21st Century and two, Ivanka’s last name is Trump, Ivanka posted a tweet about the meeting. The tweet includes a photo of the group assembled for the meeting, along with the caption, “Human trafficking is a pervasive humanitarian epidemic both domestically and abroad. Together we are working to combat this critical issue.”

Ivanka, unsurprisingly, sparked backlash on Twitter for her post. She is pretty much the literal living, breathing definition of the word “arrogant,” which is defined by Oxford as “having or revealing an exaggerated sense of one’s own importance or abilities.” Ivanka literally has no credentials beyond her last name, and her business practices routinely subjugate the concerns of third world people — who are often the victims of trafficking — to the monetary concerns of Ivanka’s businesses.
