Ivanka Trump Pretends To Lament Family Separations

Politico reports:

President Donald Trump’s daughter and adviser Ivanka Trump came out Thursday against the family separations that resulted from her father’s zero-tolerance policy for illegal immigration, calling them a “low point” of her White House tenure thus far.”That was a low point for me as well,” she said during an interview with Axios. “I feel very strongly about that, and I am very vehemently against family separation and the separation of parents and children.”

Ivanka Trump has often been labeled as a champion for children and parents due to her involvement and advocacy for paid-family leave. The president’s daughter, however, was mum on commenting about the separations as they were ongoing. She added that she is a daughter of an immigrant, noting that her mother Ivana Trump grew up in communist Czech Republic. She was also quick to mention that her mother “came to this country legally.”
