#ShitHole: A trip to Africa would inspire my dad ~ Ivanka Trump

Ivanka Trump, daughter of Donald Trump, president of the United States, says a trip to Africa would inspire her dad because she has been “deeply inspired.”

Ivanka, who works as Trump’s senior adviser, said this on the last day of her four-day trip to Ethiopia and Ivory Coast.

In an interview with Associated Press, she said the White House should be judged by its actions toward a continent that her father has privately disparaged.

“Our commitment to Africa is clear. I am here now reinforcing the fact that our relationship with the continent is strong and growing,” said the president’s daughter.

“Our actions are speaking for themselves in terms of our dedication to seeing Africa prosper.”

“I’m very excited about continuing my work to specifically focus on advocating and advancing the role of women on this continent and beyond.”

She added that she hopes the president will visit Africa.

“I’ve been deeply, deeply inspired by my trip here. And I think he will be as well,” she said.

Ivanka’s statement is coming a year after her father was under intense criticism after his private comments referring to “shithole countries” in Africa and other regions were leaked to journalists.

The continent has also been on the receiving end of Trump’s tough stance on immigration with the recent measure reportedly being the possible visa ban for countries whose nationals overstay their short-term visas.

The president’s daughter was in Africa to champion the women’s global development and prosperity initiative (W-GDP), a “whole-of-government” approach that aims to promote women’s economic empowerment (WEE) across the globe.

The initiative, which was announced by the US president in February 2019, seeks to economically empower 50 million women in the developing world by 2025.
