Ivanka Trump is being trolled online after she tweeted she was ‘en route to The Hague’ — home to the International Criminal Court and the United Nations’ International Court of Justice.
The city in the Netherlands is where people are often tried for genocide, international war crimes, and other crimes against humanity, and Twitter users went wild when they learned the first daughter was headed there.
After Ivanka took to Twitter to say she was on her way to The Hague on Wednesday, people were quick to joke that she was headed there as a criminal rather than a guest.

Her father, President Donald Trump, has been accused of human rights violations at the U.S.-Mexico border, where migrant children were separated from their parents and put in cages.
Six migrant children have died in federal custody since September, and people couldn’t resist pointing out Ivanka’s proximity to the famous courts.
‘So you waived extradition?’ one person asked, while another commented: ‘Enjoy your stay.’
‘Voluntary Surrender. Didn’t see that coming,’ political consultant Philippe Reines tweeted.
‘Well, this one’s a layup,’ joked Charles P. Pierce.
And Tufayel Ahmed noted: ‘This will age well.’
Writer Emma Kennedy called Ivanka a ‘tease’ for posting the tweet, while Jana Lynne Sanchez, a Democratic nominee for US Congress, wrote: ‘Don’t taunt us like that.’
Some chose to believe Ivanka’s tweet is foreshadowing into the future.
‘Tweets from a future timeline,’ John Maguire wrote.
‘A glimpse into the future?’ Liam O’Hare asked, and Alyssa Hertzig added: ‘Nice! Hopefully next stop will be Rikers.’
There were also a few people who thought Ivanka was trolling her critics with the tweet.
‘The irony isn’t lost. I’m 80% sure she wrote this on purpose knowing exactly what it meant,’ one person insisted.
The mocking tweets came just one day after an eerie photo of the first daughter and her husband Jared Kushner inspired a series of memes.
President Donald Trump, 72, and his family arrived in London on Monday for his three-day state visit, and during his welcoming ceremony at Buckingham Palace, Ivanka and Jared were photographed gazing outside with blank expressions on their faces.
The haunting picture quickly became a meme, with Twitter users comparing the image to scenes from famous horror movies, including The Shining, The Omen, and Flowers in the Attic.
