Ivanka Trump Visits Kennedy Space Centre with her kids.
Ivanka Trump visited the Kennedy Space Centre on May 27, 2020, even when NASA advised everyone to stay at home. It was even more surprising to see that she risked the life of her kids brought them along with her husband. This act has received widespread criticism as leaders around the world are practicing social distancing and quarantine to lead their people with an example. It was a relief to see that they were at least wearing a mask.
Why Did Ivanka Trump Visit The Kennedy Space Centre
Ivanka Trump visited the Kennedy Space Centre to attend the launch of Elon Musk’s SpaceX mission. SpaceX and NASA are heading this mission jointly. The SpaceX rocket ship was supposed to launch with NASA astronauts. The launch postponed to a further date due to unfavorable weather conditions. NASA advised people to stay inside their houses and watch the launch of the rocket. The postponement was a huge bummer, but the citizens are waiting for it to rescheduled.
Who All Accompanied Ivanka Trump?
It was interesting to note that Ivanka was not alone. She came to the event with her husband and kids. US President Donald Trump came to the event with first lady Melania Trump. It was disappointing to see both Trump and Melania walking inside the Kennedy Space Centre without a mask. US Vice-President Mike Pence also came for the event with his wife. This showed that the top administrators are still not serious about the virus. Even when Ivanka faced criticism, her family was still the best among all for at least wearing a mask.
Ivanka Trump Faces Twitter Heat
Ivanka Trump herself tweeted, “The launch of the SpaceX Crew Dragon to the ISS was scrubbed 17 minutes before the scheduled launch due to inclement weather. Leaving Kennedy Space Center now disappointing, but safety first! The launch will be rescheduled!” Twitteratis were quick to respond to this. They pointed out that the leaders of the US, especially POTUS and FLOTUS, were being bad examples to its citizens. Ivanka was heavily trolled for her casual approach and for taking her kids to the event instead of quarantining them.
