Donald Trump makes a $110 billion dollar arms deal with the Saudis and Ivanka gets $100 million dollar donation to the World Bank Women Entrepreneurs Fund from Saudi Arabia and the UAE...

This seems totally legit.


Trump attacked the Clinton Foundation for accepting donations from the very same group of people. The hypocrisy knows no boundaries any more.


World Bank President Jim Yong Kim announced the contribution to the World Bank Women Entrepreneurs Fund at a meeting in Riyadh between Ivanka Trump and 15 Saudi women Sunday, during the president’s trip to Saudi Arabia.



Trump first announced her plans for the fund in April, raising questions about whether it would cause conflicts of interest given her role in the White House, and drawing comparisons to the Clinton Foundation’s controversial donors.



The foundation received contributions from both the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia, two countries that have oppressive laws restricting women’s rights.

Ivanka has her unnamed position in the White House, travels with the President abroad, gets to converse with foreign officials and high to do important types, gains a huge donation to her project...... If that's not exploiting the office of the President of the United States I don't know what is. It's obvious. It's blatant. It's disgusting.

Two countries with the worst records in history regarding women's rights just donated 100 million bucks to a womens foundation the same day they make a huge arms agreement with the President... Who happens to be Ivanka's daddy. We are now entering the twilight zone. If Chelsea Clinton, or the Clinton foundation were in this position Trumpers would be freaking the hell out. Nepotism and an exploitation of the White House. There's no other way to put it.

Interesting. I've never heard of a "World Bank Women Entrepreneurs Fund". Does this mean that Trump owns the World Bank, the spin you're putting on this here?

Well with the Clinton Foundation closing down, they need something to do with all that money


Seriously though, have to wait and see. If Ivanka starts jetting around and draining the fund, that's bad and she should be taken to task. I'd prefer to see her and her husband walk away from Trump's administration and this would be a good reason: bad optics.

Ivanka Trump helped inspire the fund, which will be led by the World Bank. Early reports had suggested she would take a more active fundraising role, but it was later reported that she would not be directly involved in raising funds or deciding how the money would be spent.


As ol' Paul Harvey would say, "and now you know the REST of the story!"

So Ivanka is a direct recipient of that money? Or will she just get to use it for things like the kids weddings and such?

Or..... is this just a charity she is working with? I'd hate to ask for an honest hit piece, but damn, why not, it's Sunday.

From what I've read it was a proposal from Ivanka herself. The question is would she have any oversight. I'd hope not.

Always remember, the truthfulness of a story is directly proportional to how bad you want it to be true. (Unless you are pro Trump, then anything pro trump is cool) Backstory-be consistent and un-douchey.

We need to have a lot more context to this issue before we knee-jerk too quickly.

No spin.

You don't think it's odd that while Ivanka tours the Middle East with daddy President she's able to generate $100 million in donations for a project she initiated with the World Bank while she was in Germany?


While Ivanka Trump would advocate for the project, she wouldn’t be involved in soliciting funds, nor would she have a role in its management, the White House official said.


Bloomberg

The White House said she would not be soliciting funds for any of her projects, yet here one month later she goes and chats with the Saudis and they donate 100 mint?

Give me a break.

See the Bloomberg link I posted.

Ivanka is not the direct recipient. She shouldn't be traveling abroad with her dad, the President, and talking to people in high places about her pet projects that have nothing to do with US interests.

Even when they are about Saudi Arabian Women and they are in Saudi Arabia?

If you want to # on Donald, by all means, enjoy, but have some integrity.

Saying she won't be involved in soliciting funds, and then her being present in the country that just donated 100 million dollars to the fund disproves that statement.

It sounds like you're comparing apples to potatoes here.

Clinton Foundation was putting loot literally into the hands of the Clinton's, on good faith it wasn't a total profit skimming / power consolidation / money laundering / criminal enterprise / etc scheme.

vs.

Some do-gooder project someone thought up for some other institution to actually establish, enact, conduct.

Gee, did you even think to read your sources articles?
More fake news! And this is why it needs to go either in the Trash or HOAX bin.

From WaPo The Popo.
www.washingtonpost.com... ee-3e08-11e7-adba-394ee67a7582_story.html?utm_term=.d9d22c0fd7d9
"The German government has been deeply involved in the effort, and the World Bank has increased its involvement after critics suggested that any role for Trump in soliciting funds would conflict with her White House role." Another despicable spin from this liberal CIA rag.
Here is W.G E F. wgefund.org...
"Here is W.G E F. Executive Director: Karen Sugar, she has worked for social justice and improving the lives of women for most of her adult life. While in graduate school, Sugar was introduced to the concept of microfinance. She became passionate about the potential for poverty alleviation and women’s empowerment. Before she even walked across the stage to get her diploma, she was planting the seeds for Women’s Global Empowerment Fund, which she founded in 2007.
Program Director: Bukenya Musa: developed an urge to do something to help people suffering in his country. After receiving his Bachelor’s degree in journalism and a certificate in counseling he set up a fledgling non-profit in Gulu, northern Uganda. He joined Women’s Global Empowerment Fund in the fall of 2007, and his excellent leadership skills and dedication have enabled the organization to loan money to over 1900 women to date. Not only does he act as Program Director in the Gulu office, he is thought of as stable and caring to WGEF clients, always providing encouragement and support.”
I’ll bet that if Lady Diana was a Republican she would too have been demonized by you and the radical socialist Democratic (hijacked) Party.

Is this the same story here?

She is accompanying U.S. President Donald Trump on his first international visit since taking office in January, and told 200 female employees she tried to find balance between her role of First Lady and mother. "It is about finding the balance," she told the women, who took pictures of her with their smartphones. Later on Twitter, she wrote "Enjoyed talking to the incredible women working hard @GE_Saudi service center. Great strides being made towards the empowerment of women." Dressed in a tan knee-length dress, Melania shared a photo of herself with seven women dressed in abayas, the loose-fitting, full-length robes local women are required to wear in public in Saudi Arabia. She earlier visited the American International School of Riyadh and gave out books. The school, unlike most others in the conservative kingdom, has both male and female students of different nationalities. Saudi Arabia is well known as the world's most gender-segregated nation, where women live under the supervision of a male guardian and need his permission to travel, study and get some health treatments.

So, all you have is speculation. Speculation that you hope leads to cries of nepotism. How do we know it wasn't donated out of respect for the President? Oh right, who could respect him /s.

There's no hoax here. The president of the World Bank announced it. How is that a hoax?

I never said Ivank is the direct recipient. In a follow up post i cited an article from Bloomberg a month ago that included a White House statement about how Ivanka would not be involved in raising funds, yet here she is in the UAE and they just donated 100 million dollars to the fund.

That pretty much negates the White House statement that she wouldn't be involved in soliciting donations.

So you disagree with the source you posted? That is where it is from and why I didn't provide.

How is this her project outside of the idea? Is she profiting?
