South Korea is preparing well and hard to give a lavish reception and red carpet welcome for Ivanka Trump’s visit next week. Ivanka will receive the kind of treatment usually reserved for a first lady or head of state.

Ivanka is visiting Pyeongchang on February 25 for the closing ceremonies of the Olympics.

South Korean officials are hoping to get in the good graces of the first daughter and Special Advisor to POTUS with the goal of lobbying her father, President Donald Trump, to visit North Korea on a diplomatic trip. Relations between Washington and Pyongyang have worsened the past year with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s continuous nuclear arms aggression.

Local media reports in Seoul are saying that their officials are planning to host Ivanka as if she were First Lady. According to The Chosun Ilbo , officials would like to “flatter” Ivanka by having South Korean President Moon Jae In no less to accompany her to watch a skiing competition. They are also planning to get First Lady Kim Jung Sook to show her around the country.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">South Korea&#39;s biggest newspaper on preparations for Ivanka&#39;s arrival: &quot;Trump runs the White House like a private fiefdom,&quot; and Ivanka &quot;is to all intents and purposes the first lady of the U.S. rather than Trump&#39;s reluctant wife Melania.&quot; <a href=""></a> <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Anna Fifield (@annafifield) <a href="">February 19, 2018</a></blockquote>

Ivanka also happens to be a keen skier and has already hit the slopes at least twice since her father took office last year.

Local media reports also say that South Korean officials are also poised to go out of their way to “lavish” Ivanka’s three young children with gifts.

Seoul has no diplomatic obligations to host Ivanka on such a grand level but officials are said to be considering “exceptional measures” because of Ivanka’s undisputed influence in the White House, and in enjoying her father’s top confidence and trust.

Local reports are also saying that Ivanka is set to get a much more elaborate and warmer welcome than the one received by Vice President Mike Pence when he arrived for the opening of the Winter Olympics two weeks ago.

She is the de facto First Lady after all.

She deserves it. Remember SKorea needs the US more than the US needs SKorea.
