Ivanka Trump blew off homeless women whom she promised to get in touch with from a viral video. Ivanka Trump met with a homeless woman and her mother in Washington, while they were at the DC Dream Center. The center aims to inspire youth and adults “to dare to dream, equipping them to reach their God-given potential.”
Kiesha Davis, the homeless woman can’t help but feel she was used by the first daughter and Trump’s White House.
“My mother and I, we’ve been homeless,” Davis explained. “We’ve been sleeping out of a vehicle. But I’m a community advocate, and so, yes, it has been depressing and debilitating, but I’m so grateful and thankful for Ivanka, coming here with everyone today to partner with DC Dream Center. That has been awesome to get food out into the community. They’ve allowed me to come and pick up food to be able to deliver to people that are shut-in, that are needy, that are homeless and disabled, you name it.”

Some commentators told Davis she was just a pawn in the Trump PR game.
“This is too sad to watch. She doesn’t see that Ivanka only used her for a photo op,” said one reply.
Davis ignored it, thinking positively about their interaction and remembering how “genuine” Ivanka seemed.
It’s been more than a month. Davis and her mother are still homeless and they haven’t heard a word from the first daughter. So, Davis tried calling.
“There was hope in the moment, and then after that, it was like, ‘Okay, I’ve been through this before,’ ” Davis told the Post. “I’m used to people blowing me off.”
