Ivanka Trump news: POTUS daughter slammed for US taxpayers picking up ‘vacation’ bill | World | News

Ivanka Trump, daughter of US President Donald Trump, and her husband Jared Kushner are currently accompanying the US President on his trip to India. The US first family went to Agra to visit the Taj Mahal after attending the grand “Namaste Trump” event at Motera Stadium in Ahmedabad.

Ivanka Trump has come under fire for her recent post outside the “awe inspiring” Taj Mahal on Monday.

During her visit, she uploaded a snap of her posing in front of the ancient temple alongside her husband.

She captioned the image: “The grandeur and beauty of the Taj Mahal is awe inspiring!”

However, the “touristy” snap was torn apart on social media.

While her father is there touting trade and a $3 billion defence deal between the two countries, including at a joint rally with Indian prime minister Narendra Modi, Ivanka’s role remains unclear.

Many social media users slammed the pictures labelling is a ‘vacation’ on the US taxpayer.

“Why are you there???” quipped one user.

“Thanks for spending the hard-earned tax dollars of the American working class on your luxury dictator tour.

Many took to the comments section to welcome Ivanka to the country.

One user commented: “Another beauty infront of the real beauty.”

“you are the one that awe inspiring @ivankatrump” added a second.

The post comes after Donald Trump was urged to use his trip to India to help mediate growing tensions between the country and Pakistan over Kashmir.

Pakistan’s foreign minister asked Mr Trump to persuade India to open talks over the ongoing Jammu and Kashmir conflicts.

The US President’s administration has been repeatedly asked by Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan to persuade India to establish dialogues about the issue.

Both India and Pakistan claim the Jammu Kashmir region as their own, previously going to war over the regions before establishing a fragile ceasefire.

Tensions between the two countries mounted last summer after provisions of Article 370 were repealed.

The article allowed the Indian administered state of Kashmir to have a certain amount of autonomy, with its own constitution and freedom to make laws.

Pakistan has regularly urged the US to intervene in the conflict whenever both sides have met.

Pakistan’s foreign affairs ministry spokesperson Aisha Farooqui said: “We hope that during the US President’s visit to India, the issues being faced by the people of Jammu and Kashmir will be raised with the Indian government and the offer of mediation expressed by the US President is taken forward through some concrete practical step.”

A letter was written by at least four US senators to express concerns about alleged human rights issues in Jammu and Kashmir.
