Ivanka Trump Visits Ethiopia To Promote Women’s Global Development And Prosperity Initiative

Associated Press: Ivanka Trump promotes women’s empowerment in Ethiopia
“Far from the din of Washington, Ivanka Trump toured businesses run by women in Ethiopia on Sunday while promoting a White House global economic program for women. President Donald Trump’s daughter and senior adviser visited a coffee shop and textile company in Addis Ababa. It was her first stop in Africa on a four-day trip to Ethiopia and Ivory Coast on behalf of a White House project intended to boost 50 million women in developing countries by 2025. … This is Ivanka Trump’s first visit to Africa since the president launched the Women’s Global Development and Prosperity Initiative. It’s a program she hopes will outlast an administration better known for ‘America First’ isolationism…” (Lucey, 4/14).

Additional coverage of Ivanka Trump’s four-day visit to Africa is available from BBC News, CNN, Fox News, The Hill, Reuters, and VOA News.
