President Donald Trump said Wednesday that he would not take part in a visit to the White House by his daughter Ivanka Trump.
Trump, who had previously made a rare trip to the capital last week to attend a joint session of Congress, tweeted: “The next time I go to the WH, I won’t go as a family member.
Not a surrogate, not a friend.
It’s not the people.”
The president’s daughter has been a vocal critic of his policy toward North Korea, saying it threatens the lives of people in the region and could lead to a nuclear arms race.
Trump’s comments came after he made the first trip by a sitting president to the U.S. in more than two decades, a move he has praised as a major achievement.
But he made no mention of his eldest daughter during his tweetstorm.
Trump and his daughter have had rocky relations.
During his visit to Capitol Hill last week, Ivanka Trump was booed as she walked into the Senate chamber, according to ABC News.
