As president, Donald Trump reworked his daughter Ivanka Trump from a businesswoman and occasional “Apprentice” choose to one among his high advisors. She targeted her efforts on bettering life for working ladies by proposals for broader paid household depart, little one care funding, equal pay, and different quality-of-life points.
Then in 2018, then-President Trump made good on his plans to handle the migration disaster by separating undocumented kids from their dad and mom on the Texas border with no monitoring system to allow reunions. Footage of shrieking infants and weeping moms tugged at heartstrings worldwide. But the primary daughter remained silent on the problem, and Maria Shriver known as her on it on Twitter. “Now can be time for Ivanka Trump to point out what it means to be an advisor on ladies’s points, a proponent of feminine empowerment,” she wrote. “You may’t be an advocate for girls, moms and never converse up about what is going on to ladies and youngsters at this second.” The next day, Shriver famous Ivanka had but to reply. “Step up or step down,” she tweeted bluntly.
Shriver was no fonder of first son Donald Trump Jr., notably his makes an attempt to discredit the liberal media. Simply months after her messages to Ivanka, the previous first niece reposted a clip of Anderson Cooper debunking Don Jr.’s claims he had faked footage of a scene of hurricane injury. “Let’s all cease calling the information what it’s not,” Shriver demanded.
