Ivanka Is Called a HYPOCRITE for Her Complete Silence Over Trump’s Cruel Ban on Trans Service Members—and TWITTER TELLS HER SO!

In June, Ivanka Trump, the president’s daughter and one of his most trusted advisers, tweeted her support for the LGBT community in recognition of LGBT Pride Month:

On Wednesday, the oldest Trump daughter undermined her previous claims of support for LGBT people when she remained silent following her father’s ban on transgender people in the military.

According to Newsweek, Ivanka Trump’s silence has some people questioning her ability to influence any decisions made in the White House, despite a number of media stories that describe her as having the president’s ear and being able to sway him on important social issues.

For example, Ivanka strongly advocated for gender equality and climate change research when her father was campaigning. But since landing her White House role as “senior advisor,” she has been unable to convince her father to stick with the Paris Climate Agreement, nor has she been able to influence decisions surrounding Planned Parenthood, which was cut from the Trump administration’s budget proposal.

Granted, there’s a chance she could be keeping any frustrations she may have with his recent transgender military ban in private. In an April interview with CBS, Ivanka said Americans shouldn’t “conflate lack of public denouncement with silence”:

I think there are multiple ways to have your voice heard. In some cases it’s through protest and it’s through going on the nightly news and talking about or denouncing every issue in which you disagree with. Other times it is quietly and directly and candidly. So where I disagree with my father, he knows it, and I express myself with total candor. Where I agree, I fully lean in and support the agenda and hope that I can be an asset to him and make a positive impact. But I respect the fact that he always listens. It’s how he was in business. It’s how he is as president.

So basically, she says she tells him what she thinks, but that’s the end of the story. As an “influencer,” she apparently isn’t very good at all.
