Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner are spending the long holiday weekend in the Hamptons, on New York’s Long Island, and they were spotted at a party rubbing elbows with billionaire Democratic financier George Soros and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer.
The couple were among the guests at Lally Weymouth’s Southampton home Saturday, where the former Washington Post editor — whose family owned the newspaper for decades — was holding a star-studded annual party.
Kushner and Trump are both advisers to Donald Trump. Soros, a major donor to Democratic causes and an ardent opponent of Trump, has been accused by a number of Republicans of funding anti-Trump protesters.
Soros is usually blamed for liberal protests, with conservatives, especially the more conspiracy-loving ones, say that Soros pays people to protest Trump.
Ivanka broke her silence for the first time, and tweeted, “This Admin. is committed to creating 25M jobs & skills based education is critical to our job creation efforts.”
She linked to a story in the new York Times, which her father says is a failing newspaper and fake news.

Twitter was quick to respond:
Ma'am, you're acting as a surrogate for perhaps the cruelest – yet seemingly most poorly led – administration in modern era.

Hey Ivanka: Your shoe company has horrific working conditions overseas. Your headline is very hypocritical, considering…

You may be committed to that but your dad is too narcissistic to be committed to anything but his ego.

He won't get anything done. Too many investigations. Too many hours spent on twitter and television. Cannot wait for impeachment
