Ivanka Trump, whose audacity is only dwarfed by that of her father, wrote an op-ed for The Wall Street Journal titled ‘Training for the Jobs of Tomorrow’ in which she touted the importance of creating America products in America. This effort would include in-sourcing manufacturing which is currently outsourced.
This is not the first time Ivanka has been tapped to to send this message on behalf of the Trump administration. And this recent effort was no better received than any of her prior attempts.
The Democratic National Committee immediately seized on Ivanka’s piece and issued a statement titled IVANKA TRUMP IS A HYPOCRITE:
“While Ivanka Trump is busy writing op-eds calling on American companies to ‘create more jobs’ … workers in countries like Indonesia, China, Vietnam, Bangladesh, and India are busy, too — working in conditions below industry standards to manufacture othing and shoes for the first daughter’s namesake brand.”
“The first daughter and special adviser to the president loves to portray herself as a champion for working women, but one look inside the overseas factories where she chooses to manufacture her products proves that she is anything but. The women manufacturing ‘Ivanka Trump’ clothes and shoes are paid so little that many of them are forced to live without their own children.
“The American people will not be fooled by the Trumps’ political publicity stunts calling for the creation of more American jobs, and they won’t fall for Ivanka’s faux feminism. The reality of how this family runs its own businesses is clear: choosing not to buy American, hire American, or make meaningful investments in American workers.”
The response on Twitter indicates Ivanka’s op-ed wasn’t well-received by those users either.
I’m guessing your company wasn’t one of them. pic.twitter.com/Grz1R5Y1El

Was your company one of those? Will you be bringing jobs back to America? Didn’t think so

When will the Trump administration realize that total lies coming from Ivanka Trump are no more palatable than those uttered by her father?
