Twitter took notice of Ivanka Trump’s recent trip to Dubai—since it seems like more taxpayer-funded “corporate” marketing and profit for the family.

Trump’s Dubai golf course was made by Damac Properties, who paid Trump a $10 million licensing fee in 2016.  Trump still profits from it today, and yet it is costing taxpayers each time the family visits.

Ivanka’s trip was suspiciously scheduled for just a few days before the club’s 3rd anniversary. So it was free PR. Well, free for Trump, but not for us.

That’s why Twitter imploded:

1. Taxpayer sponsorship
