Ivanka Trump to fly to check on migrants in Colombia — but she’s never visited kids her dad put in cages

Published

on

Jennifer Jacobs, the senior White House reporter for Bloomberg News, is reporting the first daughter is heading to Colombia to meet with refugees from Venezuela on the border.

The situation in Venezuela has caused falling oil prices, international sanctions from leaders, and years of corruption from leaders. Currently, 1.4 million Venezuelans have rushed to the border of Colombia, begging for help.

“Ivanka Trump will visit the Colombia-Venezuela border on Wednesday ‘to see Colombia ongoing efforts to address the migrant crisis,'” Jacobs quoted the Colombian embassy.

Meanwhile, Trump’s child hasn’t been to the border in the United States to meet with migrant children her father is keeping in cages.

Ivanka has always been an advocate of children, yet when given the opportunity to do something about the children taken from their parents and kept in cages without any hope for release, she has done nothing. Ultimately, a judge informed the White House that it was illegal to snatch the children and hold them indefinitely in substandard cages. The Border Patrol has been forced to follow the law on the children, as it searches for alternatives.

The president announced at the end of August that they would enforce an old rule that would allow the U.S. to detain migrants and their children indefinitely without any due process. They claimed it was to “protect” the children. In reality, however, the Department of Homeland Security has lost many of the children that were taken from their parents at the border. While they’ve been able to locate some of them, they still can’t find 1,100 children.

It’s unclear why Ivanka is not interested in meeting with the children in the cages at the border to comfort them, but she’s willing to fly to Colombia to meet with Venezuelans. The migrants coming to the United States are similarly fleeing economic instability, violent gangs, kidnappings, and a slew of other concerns. The administration has been more focused on building the wall than stopping the flow of migrants from Latin America.

‘Money hungry mannequin’ Ivanka Trump buried for her taxpayer-funded ‘field trip’ to India with her dad

Published

on

Ivanka Trump was hammered on Twitter for posting pictures of her trip to India where she praised the "grandeur" of the Taj Mahal -- with herself featured front and center before it.

Donald Trump's daughter, a senior White House adviser, has taken to using her Twitter feed to promote herself (usually via photos or video clips) as she travels the world, presumably representing the United States. Monday morning's tweet was no exception, with the two pictures accompanied by, "The grandeur and beauty of the Taj Mahal is awe inspiring!" followed by emojis of the American flag and India's flag.

Bill Barr’s former classmates: AG has long been motivated by ruthless ambition and ‘fascist’ instincts

Published

on

Attorney General William Barr recently expressed frustration over President Donald Trump’s interference in the criminal case of veteran GOP operative Roger Stone, who on February 20, was sentenced to three years and four months in federal prison on charges ranging from jury tampering to lying to Congress. But journalist Adrian Feinberg, in an article for the Independent, expresses great skepticism over the possibility that any real tension is developing between Trump and Barr — whose authoritarian leanings, according to Feinberg, make him make him a perfect attorney general for the president.
