President-elect Donald Trump mistakenly tweeted at a woman named Ivanka in Britain, instead of his own daughter in New York.
The former reality TV star was posting a shout-out Monday night to his eldest daughter, but instead listed the handle of Ivanka Majic, a digital consultant in Brighton. Ivanka Trump had been the subject of a CNN special.
Majic responded Tuesday with a dig at the president-elect, saying, “And you’re a man with great responsibilities. May I suggest more care on Twitter more time learning about #climatechange.”
The British woman told CNN that she woke up to thousands of Twitter messages about Trump’s misguided posting.
“The interesting thing about my being dragged into a Twitter conversation with Trump is that my politics are very different than his,” she said.
Trump had been quoting another Twitter user’s praise of his daughter. Massachusetts chiropractor Lawrence Goodstein had written “@Ivanka Trump is great, a woman with real character and class.”
Donald Trump retweeted the post, apparently not realizing the tag doesn’t belong to his daughter. Hers is @IvankaTrump.
The real estate mogul’s post was shared more than 5,000 times and generated more than 8,000 replies.
Goodstein has since made his account private.
Neither Trump has responded on their respective Twitter accounts.
