Donald Trump, for all his tough talk, doesn’t respond well to criticism and it seems like that may be a trait that was passed onto his daughter, Ivanka. A United States congressman has reported that Ivanka Trump has blocked him on Twitter.
Ted Lieu (D-CA) has reported that Ivanka Trump has blocked him on Twitter. Lieu’s tweet includes a screenshot which shows his status on Ivanka’s page.
Hey look, a senior White House official is afraid of tweets from a Congressman. Ivanka blocked me. Also, why is she in the White House? pic.twitter.com/hTaagBF7MM

Lieu has been one of the many congressional Democrats who have been increasingly vocal in his opposition to Trump’s agenda. However, Ivanka Trump’s decision to block him is not only cowardly. It might be against the law as one of the replies on Lieu’s page shows.

Many of the other replies to Lieu’s post were of a similar nature and expressed frustration that Ivanka Trump seems to think the rules do not apply to her.
Throughout the course of her father’s campaign and presidency, Ivanka Trump has served as the more friendly face of her father. There seems to have been a hope that she would serve as a moderating influence, but, judging from Twitter, many people have decided that Ivanka is little better than her father.
If Ivanka Trump really did block Lieu then she needs to either unblock him or remove herself from her role as her father’s adviser. Like it or not, she is functioning as a public servant so she needs to act like one.
