It looks like the family drama is about to get real good!

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is choosing to NOT send a top delegation to accompany Ivanka Trump to a business summit in India because he doesn’t want to promote her on the world stage.

Next week, in what will be her highest profile international event, the first daughter is attending the three-day Global Entrepreneurship Summit in Hyderabad, sponsored by the State Department and India.

A theme of the summit is female economic empowerment.

A senior State Department source told CNN that “no one higher than the deputy assistant secretary is allowed to participate” in the India trip, and Tillerson’s staff “won’t send someone senior because they don’t want to bolster Ivanka.”

While the President has spent precious Twitter time boastinf about Ivanka's journey.





Tillerson has a contentious history with the White House already having contradicted several of '45's plans and at one point calling the Donald a moron. This could spark the next round of drama.

Some are already seeing this as a very public swipe at the administration.





Ivanka's participation in the summit is already controversial. Hyderabad has forcibly removed beggars from the streets ahead of her visit. In the U.S., critics are also questioning her credentials as a promoter of women in business. 

Twitter had some thoughts about the first daughter's trip as well. 













Oh this is going to play out like a Shonda Rhimes episode for sure.
