Now Watch the Conservatives Yawn

From Axios:
Ivanka Trump told me yesterday from Berlin that she has begun building a massive fund that will benefit female entrepreneurs around the globe. Both countries and companies will contribute to create a pool of capital to economically empower women.

"The statistics and results prove that when you invest in women and girls, it benefits both developed and developing economies," she said. "Women are an enormous untapped resource, critical to the growth of all countries."
  • Under the radar: Canadians, Germans and a few Middle Eastern countries have already made quiet commitments, as have several corporations, a source said.
  • How it'll work: The fund will provide working and growth capital to small- and medium-sized enterprises. 
  • Who's involved: President Trump is a huge supporter of his daughter's idea, and she has consulted with World Bank Group President Jim Yong Kim about how to pull it off in a huge way.
So, to recap, Ivanka Trump's going to operate a private foundation out of the White House and she's accepting donations from foreign sources.

If Hillary Clinton had tried that when she was the First Lady, you guys on the Right would have lost your goddamned minds.

Hillary took HUGE donations after Bill got out, then ran for President......She (and Bill) took big bucks while she was SecState....and you ignored it....and supported her for President knowing she was crooked.

Don't get all Holier than Thou now.

OK, so if Hillary was crooked (your standard), the Don-net is guilty too...more so, because of her position, Since Donnie approved Don-net's position, he's guilty too, by your standard.

Hillary didn't get Chinese trademarks approved after meeting with the Chinese president during a state visit.
