AOC SLAMS Ivanka Trump: Being Someone’s Daughter ‘Isn’t a Career Qualification’

On Saturday, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez criticized Ivanka Trump on Twitter after video emerged of the president’s daughter speaking with world leaders at the G20 summit in Osaka, Japan.

“It may be shocking to some, but being someone’s daughter actually isn’t a career qualification,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “It hurts our diplomatic standing when the President phones it in & the world moves on. The US needs our President working the G20. Bringing a qualified diplomat couldn’t hurt either.”

The video, posted on social media by the BBC’s Parham Ghobadi, shows Ivanka Trump speaking with world leaders such as French President Emmanuel Macron, United Kingdom Prime Minister Theresa May, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and International Monetary Fund Chairwoman Christine Lagarde.

“Ivanka Trump appears to be trying to get involved in a talk among Macron, May, Trudeau and Lagarde (IMF head). The video is released by French Presidential palace,” Ghobadi wrote on Twitter.

Democratic Congressman Ted Lieu (D-CA) also criticized Ivanka Trump and called her out for blocking him on Twitter. “I would like to hear Ivanka Trump’s explanation about this video. Oh wait, Senior White House Advisor @IvankaTrump blocked me. Can you forward the below video to her and ask for her response? Thanks.”

“P.S. Can you also ask her why Jared Kushner still has a security clearance?” Lieu added.

At the G20 summit, Ivanka Trump spoke at a meeting called the “Special Event on Women’s Empowerment.” At that event, Mrs. Trump said women’s talents were “one of the most undervalued resources in the world.”

This is something AOC herself could have said.

“If we propose bold solutions and challenge the limits of the past, we’ll empower women to lift their families out of poverty, to grow the economies in their countries and to deliver greater peace and prosperity to millions around the world,” Trump also stated.

What is wrong with Ivanka Trump speaking on any of these issues. Furthermore, shouldn’t it be an American as high profile as she is making such pronouncements.

Not to mention, does anyone think Hillary Clinton would have had an easier time or harder time becoming a U.S. Senator and later a presidential candidate if she hadn’t been First Lady first? Merely being married to the president?

What’s the difference in being First Daughter?
