First Daughter Ivanka Trump was widely trolled when she posted a tweet congratulating America over the Dow Jones Industrial Average crossing the 30,000-point mark, with many giving credit for the milestone to President-elect Joe Biden.
The stock market hit the historic milestone at midday on Tuesday, and before President Donald Trump popped into the White House briefing room to take a weird victory lap, Ms. Trump hit “send” on a tweet trumpeting the accomplishment.
“Dow Jones Industrial Average hits 30,000 for the first time ever!” she wrote, adding “Congratulations America!” with a flag emoji.

Her post garnered a flood of reactions, many trolling Ivanka by crediting the accomplishment to Biden, and/or reminding her that her father has spent four years measuring his success from Election Day 2016, and taking credit for any gains past that date. Still others poh-poohed the accomplishment as primarily benefiting the rich.
Not clear if Ivanka understands that this rally is because her father is leaving office and better public health and economic leadership is settling in. https://t.co/mcllXbdWrA

Does she realize the market is celebrating the end of her father’s dalliance with power? https://t.co/VGqsvAjO93

Team Trump has insisted, for four years, that he should be credited for all growth in the stock market since *Election Day* 2016 (rather than his inauguration in Jan 2017) — and now wants credit for market gains in the weeks since he’s been voted out of office https://t.co/3WbD2csiPR

The Trumps will congratulate billionaires on getting richer but never apologize to the majority of America for making us sicker, poorer, and less safe. 😒 https://t.co/fEtoShyyXC
