While she serves as an adviser to the President, Ivanka Trump doesn’t make public political statements very often. She has often been accused of leaking her and her husband, Jared Kushner’s opposition to some of her Father’s more troubling initiatives.
The first daughter recently appeared with Fox News Sean Hannity to talk about the job the President has been doing. During the spot, Ivanka Trump said that Democrats should be celebrating America’s accomplishments and that there refusal to do so is “unforgivable.”
The senior adviser to the President began by touting his economic success. She told Hannity, “The fact that of all the new jobs created last year, 73 percent of them went to Americans that were marginalized, that were on the sidelines of the economy, not even those that were unemployed, completely on the sidelines. The fact that 10 million Americans have been lifted out of welfare. It is amazing. And he wants that for all Americans.”
There is no proof of this statement. In fact, the Trump administration changed the rules for welfare, essentially kicking millions of people off the program.
Trump closed the segment by saying, “For us not to come together as a nation and celebrate America’s success is not forgivable. And I think that’s why the viewers who were watching today and realizing and celebrating alongside the president, alongside the rest of this country, what is happening. Because we have completely changed the trajectory of this country.”
