Ivanka Trump is falling flat in Germany this week. After being booed on stage for saying her father is a “tremendous champion of supporting families”, it was then revealed that her fashion line uses a company that exploits Chinese laborers, and NOW she wants foreign leaders to donate to a charity she has created.
Axios is reporting that Ivanka is creating a foundation to help female entrepreneurs and it will accept contributions from countries and business. She’s already gotten a few bites from some in the Middle East and some large corporations.
The Trump campaign had major issues with the Clinton Foundation because of its acceptance of funds from foreign governments. Clearly, now that it’s one of the Trump family, this practice is acceptable in Trump’s eyes.
With Ivanka’s place close by her father there could be some real concerns here for who is gifting her foundation and getting her attention.
It’s funny to see someone working to help female entrepreneurs when they are doing so poorly in the eyes of the public. She’s reportedly been using a Chinese factory who pays their employees about $62 a week for 60 hours worth of work. While the factor’s contractor doesn’t only work with Ivanka, and its unclear how much she knew about this, perhaps she should be taking notice.
Maybe if she wasn’t running around playing president with her father she would know more about what’s going on in her actual business. No one’s going to invest in her charity because they believe in her leading this cause, it’s only going to be another way to funnel foreign money into Trump’s pocket and gain influence on our country’s decisions.
