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.
One commenter claimed that it appears that Ivanka is taking a vacation of the taxpayer’s dime.

Trump’s Bankrupt Atlantic city casino left many businesses and families losing their livelihood because he paid $.04 on the $1 for work completed or didn’t pay at all. He also used undocumented workers and paid them in vodka. pic.twitter.com/zdZaIVbZur

Yes, it is! So, why are you photo bombing?

Poor dress choice. It clashes with the grandeur and beauty. It pulls focus.

Why are American #taxpayers paying for Ivanka to be in India?
It’s incredible to see how the #Trump family continues to leverage presidency for personal profit

Another vacation on tax payer money. What are you scouting a new hotel or slave labor?
