Since Trump moved into the Oval Office his daughter, Ivanka, and son-in-law, Jared Kushner, have been criticized for being handed plum positions within the White House despite having zero experience in anything government-related.
Kushner has been repeatedly scrutinized for being given a massive amount of responsibilities including overhauling the entire executive branch. He was also placed in charge of trying to bring peace to the Middle East and try to control the spread of the coronavirus.
Donald Trump recently made Ivanka the face of the “skills-based hiring” campaign his administration is pushing. The White House announced Ivanka’s involvement and shared a video of her discussing her new mission on Twitter.
Today, President @realDonaldTrump will sign an executive order to transform the federal hiring process—and replace one-size-fits-all, degree-based hiring with skills-based hiring.— The White House (@WhiteHouse) June 26, 2020

The video received major criticism on the social media platform.
Twitter user @Montyboa 99 responded, “If POUTS believed in skills, none of his cabinet or advisers would have jobs. Incl. Kushner, who’s botched a dozen projects, e.g. the Pandemic Fiasco Force. Or Ivanka, who trampled the 1st Amendment w/ her Lafayette Sq Assault.”
Actor Michael Rappaport tweeted, “Who is this lady? We want ELECTED officials not Nepotism Losers.”
Russell Drew tweeted, “Yeah, putting Grand Duchess Ivanka out there like she is an expert on anything beyond inheriting other people’s money and handbags is insulting to people who actually do have expertise in skills-based hiring and jobs. It’s a reminder how corrupt this current regime is.”
“Hiring based on skill? Ivanka better pack her things,” replied Twitter user the Hoarse Whisperer.
The Resistant Sister responded with, “@VP is 100% DELUSIONAL Who ELSE finds it “insulting to our intelligence” for Mike Pence to stand up in front of We The People and tell us “what a Great Job” the Trump WH has done?? @realDonaldTrump has FAILED America on EVERY POSSIBLE LEVEL!! 126,932 Americans are DEAD.”
Helen Kennedy tweeted, “Yes, Ivanka, who never had a job that wasn’t given to her by daddy, please tell us more about how you’re getting rid of qualifications in favor of “passion.” Was it your idea to be the face of this?”
Alice Evans tweeted, “There’s something wrong with her head. It’s too large and her eyes are too far up the front of it. I never condone criticism based on physical appearance except in very special circumstances but fortunately #NepotismBarbie meets the criteria.”
