WASHINGTON (AP) — President Trump’s 2020 budget proposal will include $100 million for a global women’s fund led by his daughter Ivanka Trump.
A White House official told The Associated Press that the budget, expected to be released Monday, will include the funding for the Women’s Global Development and Prosperity Initiative. The administration launched the government-wide project in February, led by the Republican president’s daughter and adviser.
The White House official was not authorized to speak publicly about budget details and requested anonymity.
The initiative aims to help 50 million no women in the developing world get ahead economically over the next six years. The U.S. Agency for International Development initially set up a $50 million fund for the effort, using already budgeted money.
