Ivanka Trump Facing Backlash After Dressing Like a Queen During Taxpayer-Funded 3-Day Trip to Morocco

White House adviser Ivanka Trump spent the week in Morocco to promote women’s economic empowerment in the North African country.

Donald Trump’s daughter was welcomed by Princess Lalla Meryem and Morocco’s foreign minister Wednesday during an airport meeting in the capital of Rabat.

During the three-day visit, Ivanka Trump promoted the U.S. government’s Women’s Global Development and Prosperity Initiative.

Launched in February, the program aims to help 50 million women in developing nations advance economically over the next six years.

Ivanka Trump is traveling with Sean Cairncross, CEO of the Millennium Challenge Corp., an independent U.S. foreign aid agency that’s working with the Moroccan government to promote economic growth, reduce poverty and strengthen institutions.

The trip comes after Morocco updated land rights laws that critics say shortchange women.

Ivanka has been busy promoting herself on Twitter, from the time she departed to Morocco:

To arriving and being treated like a princess:

We saw photos of people actually kissing the hands of Ivanka:

Ivanka tried to debrief us with her whispery-baby voice, but I still have no idea why she is spending so much taxpayer money:

Oh now we know…Ivanka got to be the Belle of the Ball and dress like a queen. Take a look:

America actually fought a big ol’ war so we wouldn’t have royalty, and Twitter was pretty pissed off that Ivanka is overseas playing princess:
