The Trumps joined their dad on his first official state visit to the United Kingdom this week. Some of them are still jaunting about Europe.
Ivanka Trump tweeted Wednesday morning that she is heading to the Netherlands. But, unlike most children bouncing around the continent on their parent’s dime, she’s not heading to Amsterdam.
En route to The Hague! 🇺🇸🇳🇱#GES2019

She’s attending the Global Entrepreneurship Summit. The Hague is also home to the International Criminal Court, where the world’s most heinous dictators and mass murderers have stood trial for their crimes.
You can see where this is going.
“I have a feeling you’ll be tweeting this a lot in the future,” wrote Forbes science contributor Dennis Merserau. He wasn’t the only one to notice the obvious opening for a joke.

Ivanka Trump has been criticized for her complicity in some of the administration’s highly criticized moments, staying silent through most of the past summer, when the Trump administration was separating migrant children from their families.
The U.S., however, has long refused to recognize the International Criminal Court’s authority, a policy both parties endorse.
