First Daughter Ivanka Trump has a new nickname. The daughter of President Donald Trump and senior White House advisor revealed her father's executive order on Friday, which revamps the federal hiring process. Which ended with social media giving her the moniker of "Nepotism Barbie."
The executive order, which President Trump signed on June 27, will require federal agencies to prioritize skills over a college degree when hiring. "President Trump has always been a champion for the American worker and ensuring that nobody is forgotten or left behind," Trump said in the clip, which was tweeted out by the White House. "It's part of why through the pledge to American workers he's focused on skills training and enhanced career opportunity in a private sector-led approach."
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.June 26, 2020
This isn't the first incident of the First Daughter getting a nickname, including from First Lady Melania Trump. However, given that the message was delivered by President Trump's unelected daughter, the underlying message of nepotism wasn't lost on people. Here's a look some of the conversation that was being held online.
Thank God Ivanka doesn't know the definition of nepotism or else she'd be pissed. #NepotismBarbie— Michael Blackman (@MikeRBlackman) June 27, 2020
1) We are making the federal hiring process better.
2) Here, to describe the process, is someone who got a federal job because of who her father is.#NepotismBarbie— JRehling (@JRehling) June 26, 2020
