Senior White House Adviser Ivanka Trump, the daughter of U.S. President Donald Trump, arrived in the United Arab Emirates. The U.S. president’s daughter is in the UAE ahead of the Global Women’s Forum, where she will give a keynote address.— The Voice of America (@VOANews) February 15, 2020
Ivanka Trump is currently in Dubai where she is giving the keynote address at the Global Women’s Forum. She will be speaking about the W-GDP Act which would make the global economic empowerment of women a priority of U.S. foreign policy and ensure that Ivanka’s global crusade on behalf of feminism would continue beyond the Trump administration.
“Washington (CNN) – Ivanka Trump on Wednesday commemorated the first anniversary of her signature policy, the Women’s Global Development and Prosperity Initiative, with the unveiling of upcoming bipartisan legislation to support her efforts. However, the initiative drew criticism from advocates who see it as dissonant from the Trump administration’s broader global women’s policies.
Speaking at a State Department event — which featured a lengthy roster of Trump administration officials and lawmakers — the presidential adviser and first daughter announced the forthcoming introduction of the “W-GDP Act” into the House and Senate.
It will be written and introduced by Sen. Lindsey Graham, a South Carolina Republican, and Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, a New Hampshire Democrat, in the Senate. A companion bill will be introduced in the House by Reps. Michael McCaul, a Texas Republican, and Rep. Lois Frankel, a Florida Democrat, Ms. Trump said. …”
“DUBAI — Ivanka Trump, an adviser to her father U.S. President Donald Trump, began a trip on Saturday to the United Arab Emirates where she is due to speak at a conference to promote female entrepreneurship this week.
Trump is set to deliver a keynote speech at the Global Women’s Forum which is taking place in Dubai on Feb. 16-17.
On Saturday, she visited Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque and met with women business leaders at the Louvre Abu Dhabi before touring the museum …”
“On February 7, 2019, I signed National Security Presidential Memorandum-16 that directs members of my Administration to prioritize women’s global economic empowerment through the first-ever, whole-of-Government effort dedicated to this issue: the Women’s Global Development and Prosperity (W-GDP) Initiative. One year later, I am pleased to announce that we have impacted 12 million women in 2019 alone. Under the leadership of Advisor to the President Ivanka Trump, my Administration has taken bold action to increase the work of the Federal Government and our partners to unleash opportunities for women to participate fully and freely in the economy. The W-GDP Initiative seeks to economically empower 50 million women across the developing world by 2025, and, in so doing, boost economic growth and increase peace and stability around the world. Accelerating women’s access to economic opportunities ensures that our development assistance furthers countries’ self-reliance, yields dividends for us all, and supports my America First policy.
Today, 90 countries around the world still have laws on the books that restrict women’s ability to work in the same jobs and sectors as men. We can, and must, address these discriminatory laws and regulations. To that end, two of the most significant milestones of the W-GDP Initiative have been the Governments of Cote d’Ivoire and Morocco each amending laws in order to promote women’s economic empowerment by enhancing women’s property …
We commend those governments for making these important and bold reforms. The United States stands ready to assist in any government’s efforts to take action to address discriminatory legal and regulatory barriers that hold women back and impede economic progress for all. …”
I know what some of you are thinking.
Why is the president’s son-in-law in charge of everything from Middle East peace to American immigration policy? Why is the president’s daughter using the White House as a platform to lead globalist crusades on behalf of feminism and homosexuality? What does that have to do with big rightwing ideas like conservatism, populism or nationalism? Why is the Trump administration pressuring other countries to embrace feminism and homosexuality?
National Plutocracy isn’t opposed to increasing legal immigration, legalizing homosexuality or empowering women. These policies could have a tremendous impact on the GDP and Wall Street. Transforming the world into a shopping mall could make our bloated oligarchs even richer. Who needs wives and mothers? The world needs more female entrepreneurs like Ivanka who were born into privilege and whose clothes are made in Third World sweatshops!
Note: I haven’t ruled out voting for Andrew Yang in the Alabama primary. Abolishing the GDP was one of his better ideas.
