All these days the official version of holding GES organized by India and US in Hyderabad has been “a testament to the strong friendship” of the two countries, as well as an event to spotlight “the growing economic and security partnership between our two nations”.  At the same time the inner circles of white house officials are treating IVANKAs visit as a holiday trip.

The preceding events of GES were previously attended by former Secretary of State or the President himself curiously this time the State Department is not sending any senior officials to accompany Ms Trump to India.

The three important officials accompanied Ms. Trump to India are the State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert, as well as US Treasurer Jovita Carranza, administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs Neomi Rao (Indian American) are neither High level State Department Officials nor in the Inner Orbit.

In recent months, both Ms Trump and her husband Jared Kushner, have taken a front seat in several international settings where Mr Tillerson believes, that as the US’s top diplomat, he should represent the country.

“Rex doesn’t like the fact that he’s supposed to be our nation’s top diplomat, and Jared Kushner, a Senior Advisor and fiancée husband of Ms. Trump have stepped all over Rex for a long time. So now, he’s not sending senior people from the State Department to support this issue.

Her company’s use of facilities in these countries clashes with the White House’s public promotion of products made in the U.S. In 2016, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recalled “Ivanka Trump”-branded scarves because they did not meet federal flammability standards. A 2016 analysis found that most of the fashion line was produced outside the U.S. As of February 2017, department store chains Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom dropped Trump’s fashion line, citing “poor performance”.

Like ‘Made in India’ slogan of the present BJP Government, the President Donald Trump has highlighted “Made in America” in the week of July. Whereas the critics pointed out that many Donald Trump brand products aren’t actually made in US and developed much hue and cry added with ire among Americans.

While her trip to India comes amid questions about how her eponymous clothing line does business, on the contrary to give a fillip to Trump’s brand which saw wholesale revenue rise to $47.3 million in 2016 — is manufactured entirely overseas. There are facts that some of Trump’s clothes are made in India, as well as in Bangladesh, China, India, Indonesia and Vietnam. Her visit is leverage to the business advantages.

Vast majority of Ms Trump’s clothes are not manufactured in US, but in China and Vietnam. More than 25 different items of Ms Trump’s range at the Macy’s flagship store in New York City, found not a single one was produced in the US. Out of the 838 Ivanka Trump products that were advertised on the Trump.Com website, 628 were said to be imported and 354 were made specifically made in China.


So, one can imagine that Modi’s invitation to Ms. Trump has worked out to be a show time for India or a business boost for her Asian co-traders who are tough to be identified and does not seem to be an official trip rather seems to be a holiday trip.

After all, her forthcoming book is called Women Who Work, not Women Who Whisper in the Ears of Powerful Men – is becoming a reverse reality in the White House circles.
