Oops! President-elect Donald Trump tweeted at the wrong Ivanka on Monday, January 16, and the woman on the receiving end was quick to hit back.
The real estate mogul, 70, quoted a supporter’s tweet praising his eldest daughter, Ivanka Trump. “@Ivanka Trump is great, a woman with real character and class,” the message read. However, Ivanka’s Twitter handle is @IvankaTrump, while @Ivanka belongs to British digital consultant Ivanka Majic.
Early Tuesday, January 17, Majic replied to the former Celebrity Apprentice host’s tweet, writing, “And you’re a man with great responsibilities. May I suggest more care on Twitter and more time learning about #climatechange.” Since posting her reply, Majic has gained thousands of new Twitter followers.

The council worker saw the mistake as an opportunity to use her voice. “The interesting thing about my being dragged into a Twitter conversation with Trump is that my politics are very different than his,” Majic told CNN of the President-elect, who has repeatedly claimed that climate change is a hoax.
“It’s not every morning, well it’s never really, that I wake up and find that lots of international news agencies want to talk to me,” the researcher for Brighton & Hove City Council continued. “I had many, many mentions. I normally try to reply politely, but I’m not going to be able to get back to everyone today.”
The other Ivanka, meanwhile, was enjoying a date night with her husband, Jared Kushner, in New York City when her father posted the tweet. “Bright lights, big city #datenight,” she captioned an Instagram photo on Monday night.
PEOTUS has yet to delete the erroneous tweet, as of Tuesday afternoon.
