Ivanka Trump took a two-day tax-payer funded trip to India.
While her father, President Donald Trump was busy mispronouncing the names of famous cricket players, the first daughter was seen posing away with her husband, Jared Kushner at banquets in the presidential palace and at the Taj Mahal.
What Exactly Is Daddy's girl Doing in India? I would say none of the people's business.
Huckster @IvankaTrump is probably advancing her extensive family business there, doing personal shopping, & sightseeing at taxpayer's expense

Just last week, Ivanka was flitting around Dubai for a taxpayer-funded business trip.
Anna Massoglia, a researcher at the Center for Responsive Politics tweeted that it coincided with the third anniversary gala of Trump’s Dubai golf club.
Ivanka Trump's United Arab Emirates trip comes days before the 3 year anniversary celebration of Trump's Dubai golf club that opened weeks after President Trump’s inauguration & doubled its income his 2nd year in the White House, raking in $43M+ since 2017 https://t.co/QAlyouGxzq https://t.co/5Tq6dZzO6f

The former chief of the U.S. Office of Government Ethics criticized Ivanka’s trip too.
How convenient. It was nice of you taxpayers to sponsor her corporate trip. It was nice of you to fund the propaganda video VOA disseminated too. Yer the best. https://t.co/2V2M5aPhHi

Incidentally, Washington Post noted that India is also home to most of Trump’s largest ventures outside of North America, that his family still has interests in. Coincidence?
Are taxpayers footing the Trumps’ trips?
Trump likes to take his family out on trips from time to time — like his infamous trip to the UK that is said to have cost taxpayers $3.5 million. He took his kids (and their spouses) to meet the Queen.
While some of them reportedly paid for themselves, taxpayers foot the bill for Ivanka and Jared who are both Trump-appointed senior advisers to the White House. And are hence on an “official trip.”

Gee, that’s what all my vacation pics look like, too! (said no one but a spoiled, vain, child)
Stop wasting our taxpayer dollars on your glamorous lifestyle, #NepotismBarbie.

Her delusion is that she is a Princess & member of a royal family. Dovetails nicely with her father's delusions of grandeur and his malignant narcissism. Holiday on the taxpayers dime. https://t.co/BNiX8NMfML via @HuffPostPol
