In yet another example of blatant nepotism, Ivanka Trump replaced ousted Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in a meeting with South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha on Friday.
British publication Express reports that Ivanka and Kyung-wha met during her three-day visit to Washington in a last-minute effort. Sources at the White House confirmed that Ivanka and Kyung-wha discuss planning two summits, one between the U.S. and North Korea, and the other between North and South Korea, though refused to discuss further plans, or when the meet would happen.
Ms. Kang said she and Ivanka Trump had a “very good conversation” over lunch, although no further details were released about what the pair discussed.
South Korea’s Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha will meet with Ivanka Trump during her three-day visit to the U.S, according to South Korea’s Foreign Ministry. Kang was supposed to meet with Rex Tillerson too, but will now meet with the deputy secretary John Sullivan instead.

Ivanka first met Kyung-wha in Pyongyang during the Winter Olympics and the two reportedly “hit it off.” Kyung-wha seemed to agree.

But it’s not just that Ivanka could be doing what Trumps do best in abusing power to increase their fortune. She is supposed to be the only “redeemable” Trump in the entire clan that some call a freak show. The world thinks that she has the power to influence her completely unhinged father.
On the contrary, she has been unable to properly babysit the child-in-chief of a father, or exact any useful influence from her questionable role in the White House.
Kushner’s business dealings and meetings with major diplomatic leaders put him square in the middle of Special Counsel Robert Muller’s Russia Investigation.
As a result, he had his security clearance downgraded, and he’s a cipher inside that sea of sycophants.
Trump seems to still be under the impression that he’s on The Apprentice and continues to shame America on both the national and world stages by hiring his cronies, clowns, and otherwise completely unqualified family members like Ivanka.
She might want to go back to being a failed purse spokesmodel as rumors continue to swirl that both she and Jared are on their way out.
