Donald Trump, unlike the majority of his predecessors, has heavily involved his family in his administration. Sons Eric and Don Jr. frequently appear at campaign rallies and on cable news. Daughter Ivanka actually has a role in the White House, serving as a Senior Adviser to the President.
There has been heavy criticism over Ivanka Trump’s role in the White House and attendance at important global functions. One of these critics is Chelsea Clinton who critiqued the President over his daughter’s position in July of 2017. One “like” of Clinton’s tweet came from the US Mission to the European Union in Brussels. According to a report from the Daily Beast, this action led to a State Department investigation into who had pressed that like button.
In 2017, Ivanka Trump attended the G-20 Summit alongside her father. Donald Trump was upset by critics who said his daughter’s appearance there was inappropriate.
The President responded via Twitter, “If Chelsea Clinton were asked to hold the seat for her mother,as her mother gave our country away, the Fake News would say CHELSEA FOR PRES!”
Clinton shot back, “Good morning Mr. President. It would never have occurred to my mother or my father to ask me. Were you giving our country away? Hoping not.”
