Donald Trump may not be invited to an Orioles game anytime soon, but his daughter seems to be taking a liking to Baltimore.
Just a handful of weeks after relocating to the nation’s capital in DC, Ivanka Trump made a pair of trips last week. There was a little work, and a little monster truck mayhem.
Ivanka Trump was in West Baltimore on Thursday at the invitation of National Urban League President Marc Morial. She visited the Greater Baltimore Urban League’s Raymond V. Haysbert Center for Entrepreneurship for a roundtable with business owners.
Meet Lisa Phillips. Once homeless, Lisa turned her life around when she founded her company, @CeleebrateUs — an event planning and gift basket company in Baltimore. Today, she serves her local community, mentors homeless youth and stands as inspiration for what one woman can accomplish with passion and perseverance. Lisa, I am in awe of you. Thank you for sharing your incredible story! #SmallBusiness #WomenEmpoweringWomen #NationalUrbanLeague
Morial has been critical of the president, but told the AP that he reached out to his daughter because of a shared interest in the area of economic development.
“We will oppose those things that we are duty bound to oppose, but we will keep our doors open to look for areas of commonality,” he said.
On the trip, it appears she was the latest to discover that it’s a good place to get out of DC and enjoy yourself, too. On the weekend, she returned. It was time to see some big trucks crush some cars. Ivanka and her son went to the monster truck rally at Royal Farms Arena. She wrote on Instagram that it was, in a word, “epic.”
By night, it was back to DC for the Governor’s Ball and observations about what she wore.
