If any other president proposed a $100 million fund to help train and empower impoverished women in foreign countries, I would be 110% behind it. But Trump’s Women’s Global Development and Prosperity Initiative is so dirty and so disgusting, my blood goes cold while writing this article.

For starters, Ivanka Trump, his daughter is in charge of the initiative. That alone should smear it with red flags and caution tape. I’ve written so many articles about how Ivanka Trump is really the very last person in the entire world to be a spokeswoman to empower women.

I get it. Now that she is the first daughter, she has been given unlimited power. If she wanted, she could use that power to truly benefit women around the world.

Michelle Obama, for example, used her position as first lady to increase healthy foods on the school menus, built more than 6200 tennis courts across the country for urban areas, made the nation’s biggest food manufacturers to make their foods healthier, the American Beverage Association committed to Michelle to start putting calorie labels on the front of their products and so much more.

The achievements of Hillary would need numerous articles to encompass. My personal favorite was the speech she gave at Beijing Olympics in 1995 about women’s rights. Check this BBC site out, 7 Speeches that Changed the World in the 20th Century. Hillary’s Beijing speech is considered one of the greatest and meaningful speeches of the 20th century.

Women out there could curse Hillary for the make believe Benghazi scandal, but in reality, you should thank her for what she did for women around the world. Shame on you if you don’t!

And now we have Ivanka, the self declared female emancipator. Oh yeah, Ivanka has done so much to help the plight of women. Before daddy tricked a third of America (uneducated) into the White House, Ivanka had a clothesline. She made shitty hand bags and clothes.

In 2018, she decided to close the business.

“After 17 months in Washington, I do not know when or if I will ever return to the business, but I do know that my focus for the foreseeable future will be the work I am doing here in Washington, so making this decision now is the only fair outcome for my team and partners,” Trump said in an emailed statement.

Ivanka has traveled across the world, promoting her women initiative. Like when she spoke at a German women’s conference, alongside real women liberators, Lagarde and Merkel. While Ivanka spoke about her wishes to help women, the audience managed to restrain their laughter. However, as soon as Ivanka said,

“I’m very proud of my father’s advocacy,” Trump said, adding that he is “a tremendous champion of supporting families and enabling them to thrive.”,

the audience began booing her. What a phony!!!

She made her crappy clothes in a dilapidated factory in an alley of Jianxi, China. Apparently, her young female employees do not deserve the respect Ivanka tries to gain for women in her speeches.

According to a report by China Labor Watch, Ivanka’s factory was considered the WORST labor rule violator in the area. The report stipulates that Ivanka’s children employee only had two days off a month. Plus, they had to work 15 hours a day!!

The factory’s employees were verbally and sometimes physically abused, and had to wait until late April to receive payment for hours they worked in March, the report said. Additionally, the workers were paid roughly $352 for 350 monthly work hours, below that China’s labor law stipulates, the report added. USAToday

And the WOMAN in charge of this disgusting factory is getting $100 million of our taxes to start an initiative for women!!!!????

Plus, Ivanka intends to use this money to help FOREIGN women!!!!!!

I have no problem with that, but remember Trump’s entire campaign was about America First, and that we SHOULDN’T be helping foreigners. According to the Oompa Loompa we need to help AMERICA FIRST.

According to the US Department of Education, here are the biggest sources of funding for Trump’s budget. These are the agencies Trump will practically deplete in order to pay for his increase in military expenditures as well as Ivanka’s initiative to help women in foreign countries.

Supporting Effective Instruction States Grants

21st Century Community Learning Centers

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants

Student Support and Academic Enrichment Grants

Teacher and School Leader Incentive Grants

Comprehensive Literacy Development Grants

If reading that list did not make you as angry as I am, you are either a republican or you have no heart. Or, chances are, both. Disgusting! This is a bold statement, but Ivanka is probably my least favorite in the Trump clan.
