Ivanka Trump Attends Global Entrepreneurship Summit in India…

President Trump’s geopolitical economic strategy is most often talked about regarding trade, China and resetting a massive U.S. trade deficit therein.  However, a critical part of that strategy, generally overlooked by U.S. media, is the relationship President Trump is building with India.

Expanded economic engagement with India creates more than just bilateral trade opportunities. A strengthened relationship, and possibility of moving India to the top of the trade priority list, also creates leverage toward China and ASEAN partner nations.

While most were paying attention to Thanksgiving’s ‘Black Friday‘ shopping; China quietly, lowered U.S. import tariffs.  BIGLY.  See Here [ <– That’s a big ‘effen deal]

Chinese media watch President Trump’s ongoing engagement with India far more closely than U.S. media watch it.  Chairman Xi Jinping and his economic advisers know the scale of risk inherent to their economy with a growing U.S./India trade relationship.

NEW DELHI, Nov. 28 (Xinhua) — Ivanka Trump, the daughter and adviser of U.S. President Donald Trump, has arrived in India for the annual global entrepreneurship summit, foreign ministry officials said Tuesday.

The summit scheduled to held in the southern city of Hyderabad Tuesday is being co-hosted by India and the United States.

Ivanka accompanied by several top administration officials reached India late Monday night.

The three-day summit, which is being held for the first time in South Asia, will also be attended by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The theme of this year’s summit is “Women First, Prosperity for All” and will include 1,200 young entrepreneurs, mostly women.

“It is a pre-eminent gathering of entrepreneurs, investors, and supporters from around the world,” officials said. “Ivanka Trump leading the U.S. contingent will be addressing the inaugural session and take part in two plenary sessions about women empowerment.”

Authorities have deployed more than 10,000 security personnel in the city as part of security measures around the high-profile summit.

Reports said during her visit, Ivanka is expected to visit the old city as well as the Charminar, the iconic symbol of Hyderabad city. (link)

    You nailed it sundance, India is the key to stop Chairman Xi’s belt and road neo-imperiaist choke on Asia Pacific ( like they are doing in Sri Lanka). Lots of work needs to be done, especially the ‘bribe states’ Cambodia, Laos and Burma. Vietnam is hedging bets, but I am confident are not wanting Chinese moneybags influence considering the war they fought with them in 1979.

    The bookend strategy, between India , Japan, with US may change the entire dynamic of the Indo-Pacific Region.

        I have been hugely disappointed by the cringeworthy wardrobe catastrophes that the Trump women have worn. T&A displays are a no-no. Short skirts, nipples/aereoles poking through the cloth of their tops, really obvious panty lines, peek-a-boo cutouts like the green dress Ivanka is wearing in the clip, are just plain unacceptable/inappropriate attire…and, for God’s sake, buy a slip!!
        MRO was the worst offender ever, but given her disadvantaged background, it was to be expected that she didn’t know any better and was too insecure and arrogant to listen to counsel. Watching her shovel food into her mouth at a televised luncheon was fascinatingly appalling.
        I fervently hope the Trump ladies get this figured out soon.

          prettyplease, where did you get the idea MO came from a “disadvantaged background” she came from a very comfortable middle class background and her father was a hack on the payroll with a patronage job. She hung out with Jesse Jackson familiy, lacked for nothing and ended up at the best colleges. As for the Trump women, the only ones I have seen poorly dressed are Ivanka and Tiffany with skirts way too short and generally undignified as you discuss. Frankly I find Ivanka to be underdressed in India and her hair looks like she just rolled out of bed. FLOTUS Melania has been spot on consistently.

            Ivanka and Tiffanyare definitely on the list. Tiffany is a kid and prone to silliness. She seldom appears except at family functions, and I will give her a pass. On the other hand,Someone described Ivankas dress today as looking like “green vomit.” They were right. There is a reason why media professionals wear solid colors. if Ivanka wants to dress like she did when she was CEO of her own company, or as a New York socialite, then she needs to go back to New York. When representing the White House, there is a certain standard of dress that is appropriate, that comes under the heading of business professional.
            There have been a couple of times when Melania has displayed more than she ought. The application of the proper foundation garments would have ameliorated that faux pas. Imho, Toddling around in 5 inch heels to the point that you can’t even walk down one step without help for fear that you will fall flat on your face is a little foolish, but does not cross the bounds of common decency. I think that Melania has progressed in leaps and bounds since coming to the White House, and I think, as she settles in to her new role, she Will do just fine.

    Wow SD what China 🇨🇳 recently did was HUGE!

    From the article linked above:

    Nor are these just-announced tariff cuts small. When the cuts kick in on Dec. 1, they’ll be sliced from an average of 17.3% to an average of 7.7%.

    They anticipate more corporations from the US to be able to take advantage of the Chinese market. This move by China 🇨🇳 will help their citizens in a big way. Our President always talks about a win-win scenario. This seems to be exactly that.

    From the article linked above:

    And it will be to Chinese consumers’ immense benefit. One of the problems China has had is its overreliance on exports for growth, while its own consumers have suffered high prices and, in many cases, a lack of consumer goods to buy locally. Chinese President Xi Jinping, seeking to reverse China’s flagging economic growth, pledged during the October Communist Party meeting to help Chinese workers improve their standard of living.

    Because Chinese workers have so few things to buy, it’s not unusual for them to save up to half their income: You can’t spend money if you have nothing to buy.

    India 🇮🇳 is huge when you think of what they mean both politically and economically to our country. TREX recently spoke at a summit about what the administration would like to see with India 🇮🇳. He said that it was our hope that the largest democratic country in the world could become the second strongest military in the world. Our military relationship with India 🇮🇳 is light years advanced in comparison with China 🇨🇳. He also discussed the possibility to become large trading partners. Especially through the Energy sector.

    Well worth the 40+ minutes:

    https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2017/10/18/bigly-important-secretary-rex-tillerson-discusses-u-s-india-relationship/

    He pointed out that the average age for the 1.3 billion citizens is 27. China 🇨🇳 is closer to 40. I get the sense that our President is trying to create a triangle between India 🇮🇳, Japan 🇯🇵 and us. I think that frightens President Xi as much as the possibility of losing some of our markets to them.

    Japan 🇯🇵 is on the cusp of reversing the defense only military. PM Abe won by such margins that his party has the required 2/3 votes needed to scrap that agreement. Japan 🇯🇵 is also spending like crazy in building up their military hardware. They are purchasing from us.

    What our President is doing is going to prevail long past his amazing eight years in office. This is Trumpism on a global scale. There is no going back because Americans have awaken.

      I agree that men do seem to get little attention many times. There is a genuine crisis in how our education system deals with our sons, who for years have been overmedicated because they are just being boys, and passed over for scholarships and college internships if they aren’t a minority.

      But as the mother of both a son and a daughter, I want each to be well educated and able to survive in a complex, often brutal world. I also have five young granddaughters I pray will be able to be do the same.

      Why do I feel so strongly about women having opportunities? My family history would perhaps explain it. During the depression my maternal grandmother was abandoned by her husband, left to raise five children alone. She, like most women of her time and social class, had no education or skills to adequately provide for her family. I have heard the family stories about hunger and holes in shoes which were long since outgrown. My mother lived her entire life emotionally damaged by her horrible childhood.

      I pray no one in my family will ever have to live through that deprivation again. Because of this I strongly believe every woman needs to have the education and opportunity to stand on her own two feet should her circumstances require that.

      I wouldn’t say you’re wrong. There never appears to be a balance. What these conferences focus on is more women at the top, around the world.

      In real life in the US and Europe, there are far more men at the top and at the bottom, and far more women in middle management. In the rest of the (third) world, there are almost no women at the top, few in the middle, and most at the bottom. I don’t see these conferences aimed at the US/Europe so much as they are aimed at the dictatorships and authoritarian regimes that populate the rest of the world.

    Ivanka is a symbol to other parts of the world that some in the West cannot grasp.
    This “women” stuff is going to happen, whether people like it or not. Women are the majority, and are still woefully ‘behind’ in key areas, even in some Westernized countries.
    We have already seen the status of women slipping in “developing” nations.
    What I’m seeing here is our president taking control of the whole ‘woman power’ narrative, using his own rather majestic daughter as a de facto ambassador of women.
    Who were we told was the highly respected face of American womanhood prior to this? Hillary Clinton.
    Remember all the “don’t the Americans know how admired she is?” articles in the MSM prior to the last election? We were supposed to allow European opinion to choose our next leader, because Women.
    We can see how phony that Women thing was.
    Well, here now is the real deal. An American president taking the lead, wresting the issue away from the fake and filthy globalists, and putting a non-politician, real woman out there in front.
    I won’t be sorry to hear the last from the “feminists” like Al Franken and Harvey Weinstein. They got owned.
    Don’t forget, President Trump has known all along what these people are like.
    President Trump loves women. I believe he really wants to be the president who did something of lasting value for the female half of the planet.
    This isn’t costing the US taxpayer anything we wouldn’t have been shelling out one way or another, either.
    BTW, I think Bannon’s problems with Ivanka are a little more personal than they should be.

      Keep in mind Trump is walking a tightrope regarding Moore, if you notice there has been no full throat-ed endorsement from our President. There is the possibility that he is just trying to avoid being tainted by baseless allegations. There is also the possibility Trump knows something that perhaps is not criminal but just more peculiar then has been discussed.

      I spent a little time in the south in the 70s and 80s it was different but…hmmmm…. well for now here is hoping Moore wins.

      I appreciate most of Moore’s positions BUT I do not want to be preached to by politicians. I find his stance on private behaviors awful. we are asked to accept a 1940s behavior from him in 1980 (yes I know Elvis and Pricilla in the 60s) and yet he has no tolerance for homosexuality and would attempt to legislate morality. I see a bit of Pot call the Kettle black.

        I discovered that by the time most Northerners warm up to a Southerner and figure out he’s worth knowing, his behavior has been so off-putting, the Southerner has figured out just the opposite.

        Your comment was unnecessarily RUDE. However being a Southerner, I have learned that being mannerly says as much about the person with manners as it does those without them.

    I think a critical angle to this is how Donald Trump is utilizing Entrepreneurship as a means to establish the economic self-sufficiency of the Indian people. With such a potential labor force as India has, it stands to reason that a self-sufficient economy would be a massive stumbling block to China’s economic domination strategy.

    Due to the fact that India is much more favorable to individual business proprietors than China (and India’s propensity for peace), I think the strategy here is clear. We have a benevolent superpower in the making.

Two of them have enough to do with their families and the third one has enough sense to stay out of my way unless she has a very good reason to “suggest” anything to me. My four sons also respect what I say and rarely try to counsel me. They have given me a lot of praise over the years (I tricked them) and they respect my authority as a spiritual leader and as a father which I believe are one and the same.

    Ivanka is a meddling young woman who needs to step down with her husband. Let them join their liberal buddies and do what they will but she needs to let her father run the country without her “sage counsel.”

      The President (except for his cabinet) is surrounded by backstabbers. He TRUSTS his family greatly. I think we should have the grace to go along with his choice to keep them close without un-needed name calling, just b/c we don’t like their seeming political leanings. P45 knows what he is doing ! Just my $.02
