Ivanka Trump Faces Backlash For Conducting White House Business Without Official Title

The Trump administration has not gotten off to a good start by any possible standard. Not only has The Donald ruffled feathers all across the globe with his selfish “America First” pronouncements, his domestic agenda has also gotten off to a very slow start. He has not managed to get almost anything done legislatively, but he has signed a series of executive orders that have led ending a lot of regulations relating to big businesses and the environment.

One of the major criticisms of the Trump Administration has been that he has hired so many family members and close associates in senior positions. New presidents are of course expected to clean house and bring in new blood to help develop and promote their policies, but no other president has brought so many family members, including his daughter Ivanka, into pivotal spots in his administration.

Relating to this, a pic of Ivanka Trump leading a White House meeting on human trafficking earlier this week has generated a lot of controversy online.

Ivanka posted an image of the attendees around a conference table on Twitter with the caption: "Human trafficking is a pervasive humanitarian epidemic both domestically and abroad. Together we are working to combat this critical issue."

That said, an eagle-eyed user noticed that Ivanka’s name tent on the conference table did not have a title like the others, so he commented: "the White House staffer in charge of printing out these things doesn't know what Ivanka does either."

Not surprisingly, the response to Ivanka’s tweet on social media has been largely critical, with many posters using it as an opportunity to poke fun at her.

For example, one Twitter user tweeted back a photoshopped name tent that includes a website address and the words "All 'Ivanka' bracelets 20% off."

Another Twitter user filled in her title on the name tent as "Ministry of Kleptocracy & Nepotism."

Of note, Ivanka’s official title is the rather generic “assistant to the president”.

Other commenters also noted that the body language of Democratic Senator Amy Klobuchar, who was seated next to Ivanka, seemed a bit odd. One poster tweeted: "Amy Klobuchar's reaction to Ivanka speaking here is priceless. This eye roll should be on a campaign mailer for @amyklobuchar in 2020."
