In just a single tweet, President Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka proved that she and the rest of the Trump clan take pride in separating thousands of children from their families in the United States.
On Sunday, Ivanka tweeted an image of her holding her son in her arms:

Ivanka’s tweet comes shortly after her father’s policies caused 1,500 immigrant children to be ripped out of the hands of their mothers and put into homes of sponsors, which is a prominent issue in our country right now, causing outrage from all sides.
Steven Wagner, a top official with the Department of Health and Human Services, disclosed the number to a Senate subcommittee last month while discussing the state of the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) that oversees the care of unaccompanied immigrant children. In his testimony, Wagner said during the last three months of 2017, the ORR reportedly lost track of thousands of immigrant children.
Ivanka, who claims to be a loving mother, obviously had no sympathy for the helpless children and their loved ones. As expected, the internet broke into a raging storm over her selfishness:
An actual mother would have compassion for the children harmed by your father’s policies.
Your contrived photo ops are absurd.

Personally I found this to be offensive when #WhereAreTheCHILDREN is on everyone’s mind!

You better do some homework before tweeting!! You are wrong and DONT YOU CARE WHERE THE CHILDREN ARE!!?

Hundreds of children have been forcibly removed from their parents, kept in jail cells, abused by ICE guards, & lost in the system
But go ahead, tone deaf Barbie. Enjoy your snuggles while your deafening silence to your father’s inhumane policies reveals you#WhereAreThChildren

WTF is wrong with you. Seriously, I would really like to know. How you can post this picture while your father’s Administration rip’s babies and children out of their mother’s arms and then loses them. Some to sex traffickers, some to Farms as slaves. Your whole family sucks!

Now imagine, the Government ripping him from your arms and taking him away, maybe never to be held by you again.

Absolutely. She is purposely mocking the #WhereAreTheMissingChildren issue by posting this photo. The rotten orange doesn’t fall far from the rotten orange tree.

How fortunate you are that you can enjoy this morning with your adorable child. I wonder if he understands that his grandfather is behind a policy whereby people legally coming to this country seeking asylum are having their own children get from their loving arms?

Ivanka Trump is either extraordinarily cruel or astonishingly obtuse. Either way, her tweet is just another example of how the Trump family is the epitome of white privilege.
