Halsey claps back at Ivanka Trump for insensitive tweet amid reports of missing children
The musician took serious issue with Ivanka's timing and slammed the 36-year-old in a tweet of her own
Ivanka Trump must have been oblivious to the shocking news that the US Office of Refugee Resettlement "was unable to determine with certainty the whereabouts" of almost 1,500 children when she decided to post a picture of her son and herself on social media on Sunday.
The First Daughter captioned the image, "My #SundayMorning" where she, along with her son, is seen in their pajamas staring into each other's eyes.
Not just the missing children, the tweet came after there were reports earlier this month that families are being separated at the US-Mexico border under Trump administration's 'zero tolerance' border enforcement policy.
As soon as Ivanka posted the picture, singer Halsey ensured that Ivanka got a piece of her mind.
The musician took serious issue with Ivanka's timing and slammed the 36-year-old in a tweet of her own. “I wonder what #SundayMorning is like for the parents of 1500 lost children your father is responsible for. F*** your #SundayMorning,” she wrote.
Donald Trump has since shrugged the blame for all the missing children off his shoulders, and in turn, has put the blame on the Democrats.
He tweeted, “Put pressure on the Democrats to end the horrible law that separates children from there parents once they cross the Border into the U.S. Catch and Release, Lottery and Chain must also go with it and we MUST continue building the WALL! DEMOCRATS ARE PROTECTING MS-13 THUGS.”
However, what he failed to realize was that the policy to separate children from their parents at the border is actually his own administration's policy, something that people are well aware of.
As a response to the President's tweet, ACLU wrote, “No law requires this — separating parents and children is your administration’s choice. Hundreds of kids as young as 18 months are in danger of suffering lifelong trauma. We won’t let you shift the blame or use families as bargaining chips for your wall. #EndFamilySeparation.”
However, the backlash from netizens continued and Ivanka found herself at the receiving end.
