Exclusive w/ Ivanka Trump: Women key to global stability

Trump Makes Last Appeal for Wall Funding in State of Union Address

The president signed a memorandum on Thursday establishing the Women's Global Development and Prosperity Initiative (W-GDP) which will help women receive job training, financial support, and regulatory reforms to develop entrepreneurship.

Calling it a "historic step", the president signed a national security memorandum to officially launch the effort, framing it as a way to promote stability around the world.

Earlier in an op-ed in The Wall Street Journal, Ivanka said this new initiative will for the first time coordinate America's commitment to one of the most undervalued resources in the developing world-the talent, ambition and genius of women.

The goal of the initiative is to reach 50 million women in the developing world by 2025, using $50 million from the U.S. Agency for International Development and private partners such as UPS and Pepsi.

Emiliano Sala remembered by footballers after body found in plane wreckage
The plane had been en route to Cardiff from Nantes , France when it vanished from radars near the Channel Islands. Dorset Police have now confirmed that a coroner has officially identified the body as the former Nantes striker.

"It's a culmination of a lot of hard work but also really the beginning because the program's now stood up and we have to execute on a very ambitious goal", Trump said in an exclusive interview with ABC Abby Huntsman, co-host of "The View", following the launch of the initiative.

"We're proud of our legacy of being a generous nation, looking to uplift others around the world".

President Donald Trump discussed investing in what he called "industries of the future" as part of expanded infrastructure investment in his State of the Union address Tuesday evening. The Obama administration established an Office of Global Women's Issues at the State Department and established an ambassador-at-large for global women's Issues. Past global initiatives she has studied include the U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief, started under President George W. Bush in 2003.

A new White House effort aims at helping 50 million women in developing countries to get ahead economically. "We can not tolerate a leaky valve or a back-door into these networks", Senator Maria Cantwell, a member of the committee, said during her opening remarks, calling on Trump to provide Congress with "a real, quantifiable 5G threat assessment".
