    The trip It's just a pretext for Ivanka to search for a new source of cheap labor in Africa to manufacture her products since the labor cost in China is getting too high for her to maximize her's profits. It's a win-win for her and her family since the trip is paid by the taxpayers. Fleecing America Taxpayers is Trump family way to make money. Her father has done so many times through many of his BANCRUPCIES.

    Daddy won't like her doin' this in a S-hole country.

    "I think one of the most powerful tools for women's economic empowerment is the ability to choose when and how many children they have," Kenny said."

    It is THE single most important factor. If you cannot control your own body and its reproductive functions, you cannot control any other aspect of your life.

    Actions speak louder than words. Daddy has disparaged Africa, women, 's-- hole' places like Addis Ababa, you name it.
    The only people Mr Trump hasn't insulted are Vladimir Putin and the other Russian oligarchs. White House Barbie can't repair everything her father has screwed up with some photo-ops.

    Everything this barbie does is just for rebranding herself as a politician, since even she knows no matter what she can never go back to selling trinkets with the trump brand on them.

    Good luck to Ivanka with her Be My Sweatshop initiative.

  • Jane.Doug

    WHY NOT IN OUR OWN COUNTRY?????

  • Forward forward

    So what is really up? Trump Tower Addis Ababa doesn't really sound right.

    We know these grifters don't make a move if it doesn't line their own pocket or help themselves in some way.

    Let me know when the Feckless One decides to visit Harlem or South Central or any other predominantly black area within the U.S.

    Or, better yet, let's see the Feckless One go to Saudi Arabia and preach empowerment to Saudi women.
    Seeing that her daddy is so fond of MBS (Mr. Bone Saw), that ought to be a really successful venture.

  • Prophet With Honor

    Flying commercial? How quaint!

  • Forward forward

    Follow Ivanka's rules for success:
    Step 1, Be born to a crooked millionaire daddy.
    Step 2, Use daddy's money to set up a factory to exploit indentured Chinese workers to make shoddy handbags.
    Step 3, Have daddy give you an undefined job in government to play around without any real responsibility,
    Step 4, Go around lecturing people about the importance of self-reliance and hard work.

    "Investing in women is smart development policy and it's smart business," Trump said....sad this should be done here in the US

  • cvryder2000

    If "Baby" had done her research, she would have known that African women are the hardest working women in the world. They are farmers, small businesspeople, nurses, midwives, etc. They may not have the "big business" jobs like she was born into, but most work much harder than she does because many are the main support of their families.

  • theamericanway

    Ivanka and work are two words that do not work well in the same sentence.

  • Your Worst Nightmare

    Does her Daddy know that she is visiting "sheethole countries"?

  • Truthfully

    Another business trip paid by the Great USA. While princess invanka recruits workers for her new slave shops?
    Disgusting crooked family! And this same family warned us about the Clintons???
    They should have warned us about them.

    Anyone see how Stop & Shop rewarded their workers with their HUGE Tax Breaks??
    Cut Hours, No pay increases and trying to take pensions...………….another trump lie.

  • Ann

    Yes, what a waste of taxpayers money . What happened to America first?

  • poultrygeist

    Rich girl should take her "work programs" to the countries of the people who are desperately trying to cross our southern border.

  • newz4i

    "... She has spent two years promoting a family-friendly agenda ..."

    Trumps? Family friendly? Come on.

  • Harry Gaffney III

    Ivanka? Who cares!

    Most nepotism, corruption and sleaze filled administration ever. Impeach, Indict and Imprison the lot!!

  • Don'tBotherMe

    Ivanka's advice about women working: Have daddy get you a job for which you aren't qualified.

  • Robinmd

    She thinks she's the rose among the thorns. WRONG! She's just as wicked and evil as the rest.

  • Rebecca Hancock

    There is something up here. The Trumps never go anywhere unless it makes them and their friend money. Need more details on the policy and how it to be implemented.

  • Joe Mac Pherson

    White House Barbie, why can't you focus on women right here? They need help in Appalachia, in the Ozarks, in the Dakotas, in Wyoming, in the Deep South, across rural counties where farms are in trouble. They need help in big cities, where crowded tenement apartments and neglected apartment buildings provide poor living conditions. No; you'd rather have the U.S. taxpayers foot the bills for your globetrotting adventures for Ivanka Entrepreneur, Limited. I guess you should forget all about the living conditions in many apartment complexes. Jared Kushner is so busy with global affairs, when he's not evicting tenants in his many, many properties.

  • The Kid

    Please stay there!!!

    I have to admit, White House Barbie would look pretty good in a pith helmet and leather boots. Be Best I, Be Best.

  • Lee Thompson

    Are we watching a segment of the "Borgias"?
    If she wants to help women, she could start in the WH with 'Daddy Dearest'.

  • FlorMedDoc

    When someone like Ivanka who remains silent while her daddy verbally assaults women she in essence condones that behavior. You can't further women's rights in a foreign countries when you remain silent at home as the republican party and it's leader tries to dismantle them here

  • mikevietvet68/69

    she should start trying to help african american women in this country first,her daddy stated that africa was a s-hole country so why is she there? maybe she is making nigeria an oil deal for her daddy's benefactors,the whole family is a joke.

  • disqus_VTtXsRxSgB

    I'm not sure if Ivanka's trip is a PR stunt to clean up daddy's racist image (we all know Trump has utter contempt for people who aren't white - unless they're rich of course) or out of genuine concern for women in these African countries.

    If Ivanka's trip is truly genuinely motivated - thanks Ivanka for your efforts.

    The media needs to stop running these puff pieces on Ivanka and pretending this is normal. We don't even know what she does all day and yet we are paying for a staff of people for her, with several making six-figure salaries. Meanwhile, she didn't even get security clearance without daddy's help.

  • sane one

    I'd prefer women to work in central America!

  • mtntrek3

    Personally I'd like to know what the Trump family has done for much of anyone except for themselves. ... They haven't even really done much to earn any of their fortunes either; DJT has been a flop mostly in his "business" life and relied on his dad's estate for monetary rescue after all of his screw-ups along with evading taxes. Trump's daddy Fred was a weasel also as I have read. They're all a bunch of spoiled upper class crooks.

  • ROBOTIX JONES

    Little miss silver spoon daddy's rich girl that has her trinkets made in China.

    Any conservatives care to list her credentials for being a White House adviser?

  • mtntrek3

    Ivanka and her daddy still have their products made in foreign lands at slave labor wages, ... so what (or why) is she going to Africa and other impoverished nations to say or do? "Good job, keep making our products for us/ making us wealthier while you struggle to eke out a living" ... ?

  • mtntrek3

    What/how is daddy's girl who knows little more than how to put on her make- up going to teach them/help them ? And, the "predatory practices" of China comment by Trump. Really? He doesn't take advantage of illegals at his resorts? He has also said he believes the minimum wage in our country is too high now. Hmm...
