A few weeks ago, Ivanka Trump gave a speech about the “difficult journey” she’s taken to be the daughter of immigrants.
And then there was the speech she gave last week in Iowa where she called for all Americans to be “patriots” and that she’ll “never, ever” abandon her country.
In this case, that didn’t go over well with the political class.
“She made it very clear that she’s not just running for president.
She’s running for the presidency to be a champion for the American people, to be an advocate for the people,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told CNN.
“I mean, it’s kind of a little bit disturbing.”
“We should all be very concerned about the fact that Ivanka Trump wants to be president of the United States.
She should be able to do that, but we should all remember that she is a woman and she’s a daughter of the people.
She doesn’t deserve to be in that position.”
In a statement on Friday, the White House said that Ivanka “is not a candidate for president and is not affiliated with the White Houses campaign.”
“She has never run for public office,” the statement said.
“She is a proud American and a valued member of our community.”
