An unannounced visit by US President Donald Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, has upset parents of students at a high school in the state of Connecticut, with some pulling their kids from class.
Parents said they were troubled for not being told in advance that Trump’s daughter, who is also a senior White House adviser, was paying a visit to Norwalk Early College Academy at Norwalk High School on Monday.

An alumna of the academy, Monica Mercuri, also disapproved of Ivanka’s visit to the school
