Outgoing White House press secretary Sarah Sanders came to Ivanka Trump’s defense on Twitter, after Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez criticized the president’s daughter appearing at last week’s G20 summit.
Defending Ivanka Trump and her father, Sanders accused Ocasio-Cortez of “phoning it in” herself by “wasting” time on social media and “destroying jobs” in New York.
Ocasio-Cortez made headlines back in February after online megastore Amazon scrapped plans to build an additional head office (HQ2) in Queens, New York.
Ivanka Trump, needless to say, has not created “millions of jobs.” Aunt Lydia is just going to keep lying no matter where she is. Pity Arkansas.
It may be shocking to some, but being someone’s daughter actually isn’t a career qualification.
It hurts our diplomatic standing when the President phones it in & the world moves on.
The US needs our President working the G20. Bringing a qualified diplomat couldn’t hurt either. https://t.co/KCZMXJ8FD9

Phoning it in @AOC is wasting your time on Twitter while destroying jobs in NY. @realDonaldTrump & @IvankaTrump actually created millions of new jobs and continue to make the US stronger on the global stage but thank you for reminding Americans everyday why they elected Trump. https://t.co/uGN4GXgAsC
