Ivanka Trump has been caught in the cross hairs of a Diplomat and it’s not looking very good. What has been spoken about her shows exactly what our allies think of her role in her father’s administration.
Ivanka Trump will be leading a delegation to India at the Global Entrepreneurship Summit in November where she is expected to make speeches and represent the United States. She was invited to this summit by the Indian Prime Minister Modi during his recent visit to Washington. India is an emerging economic powerhouse and a potential trading partner with the US. The developing country has it’s own problems but is a big market for US goods and services. And as a nuclear power, it is also a potential ally in an increasingly volatile world.
The Indians ofcourse have been watching and following the developments in Washington, following Trump’s speeches and of course Ivanka Trump’s role in embattled administration.
When Trump announced that his daughter Ivanka would be leading a delegation to India, one of India’s top diplomats provided an analysis of how Ivanka is regarded, describing her just as “half-wit” as the Saudi princes.
“We regard Ivanka Trump the way we do half-wit Saudi princes. It’s in our national interest to flatter them,” the diplomat told Bobby Ghosh, editor of the Hindustan Times.
“Yes,It is a shame that the US should be compared to a Kingdom. But that is America’s shame, not Modi’s, or India’s.”
According to Independent , the US Department of State says the three day event encouraged collaboration between American entrepreneurs and investors with International counterparts “to form lasting relationships.”
Ivanka Trump has carried out official duties representing the US since her father appointed her as adviser. She famously sat in for her father during the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany.
Political pundits have always hoped that Ivanka Trump will guide her father in making policy changes at the White House. They claim that she is a modern young woman who may understand better the policies that may affect many young Americans and women in particular. So far, Ivanka has failed to have any influence on her father’s policy making. It is said that Donald Trump does not listen to any advisers!
