After taking a shot at the job credentials of President Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, Socialist Rep.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez got mocked in response.
A former waitress and bartender, Ocasio-Cortez wasn’t happy that Ivanka Trump escorted the president on his trip to the G-20 summit. She was also included in photos alongside other powerful world leaders.
Ocasio-Cortez wrote on Twitter: “It may be shocking to some, but being someone’s daughter actually isn’t a career qualification,
“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.”
According to Fox News that before joining the administration, Ivanka Trump was the CEO of her clothing and accessories empire and an executive vice president with the Trump Organization.
During the G-20 Summit, President Trump’s daughter “represented the U.S. in meetings with leaders from China, Japan, Russia, India and Australia” and “led the U.S. delegation in a special discussion on women’s economic empowerment.”
Ivanka Trump also noted that the US was the only country that was bringing a female team to make negotiations at the G-20.
The United States is the only country in the G20 with an entirely female negotiating team representing President Trump and advancing his priorities,” Ivanka Trump wrote on Twitter. “Looking forward to heading to Japan tomorrow! #G20Japan #WGDP.”
Ocasio-Cortez was widely mocked for complaining about Ivanka Trump’s job credentials.
Piers Morgan replied: “Could be worse… Ivanka could have been a bar-tender 18 months ago.”
John Thomas tweeted: “I didn’t realize being a bar tender was a qualification to be a member of Congress?”
Paris Dennard wrote: “Remind us how being a bartender qualified you to be a member of Congress creating laws, voting on bills that impact Americans & the world. Let’s not go there & start comparing your resume to @IvankaTrump’s experience & resume. She also takes no salary. Way to support women…”
Carol Roth said: “Well, if anyone would know about getting a job with lack of qualifications…”
Jessie Jane Duff wrote: “This is rich. A woman who was a bartender degrades a woman who had a thriving career prior to joining Office of Economic Initiatives. Ivanka’s initiatives created millions of opportunities for workers by legislative & Admin action. How many jobs did AOC initiate? Zero. #Amazon.”
