    President Donald Trump has repeatedly expressed concern over flows of migrants coming to the United States through Mexico, insisting that a border wall should be in place in order to prevent criminals from entering the country.

    During an interview with CBS News’ “Face the Nation” on Monday, Ivanka Trump preferred to dismiss a question about the separation of migrant families by the Trump administration, saying that she has nothing to do with the issue.  

    “Immigration is not part of my portfolio. Obviously, I think everyone should be engaged, and the full force of the US government is committed to this effort of border security, to protecting the most vulnerable. That includes those being trafficked across our border”, she noted.

    This immediately caused uproar from netizens who were united in their condemnation of Ivanka’s remarks.

    “Ivanka’s portfolio only covers photobombing and lots of vacations”, one user claimed, with another netizen blaming President Trump’s daughter for “constantly lying”.

    While almost all users pointed the finger at Ivanka, some preferred to draw attention to what they slammed as “softball questions in order to get her on air”.

    Face the Nation should be ashamed of itself for calling that “news”, one angry user wrote on Twitter.

    After about 2,700 migrant children were separated from their parents during the implementation of Washington’s “zero tolerance” policy last year, US President Donald Trump ordered a halt to the separations.

    POTUS is highly concerned over flows of migrants coming to the United States through Mexico, calling for a border to be built in the area in order to prevent criminals from entering the country.

    The situation at the southern US border escalated last fall, when a caravan, including thousands of people from Central America, attempted to cross into the US through its border with Mexico. Additional US troops have been deployed to the border area in order to counter the attempted migrant invasion.
