The tweet sparked backlash from users who soon started ridiculing her “privileged” lifestyle.
One angry user responded: “I’m glad you’re finally acknowledging your privilege.”
Another user said: “Privilege about covers it.”
Another user responded: “Is that the nepotism dance?”

Many tweets included images and gifs describing the irony of Ivanka’s tweet.
During her visit, Ivanka also interacted with local businesses and politicians.
After leaving the continent, Ivanka tweeted farewell to the Ivory Coast in their native language: “Au revoir, Côte d’Ivoire!”
It comes as the First Daughter revealed she turned down an offer from her father Donald Trump to lead the World Bank.
During her trip to Africa, Ivanka confirmed her father had offered her the role which went to David Malpass.
However, she refused to answer questions on whether her father had offered her any other roles within the White House.
She responded to the questions by saying it is “between me and my father”.
Currently, Ivanka serves as a White House advisor to her father and undertakes work on issues such as workforce development and women’s empowerment.
