Ivanka may have massively downplayed her role in her father’s presidential campaign 🐷
"Friday brought another reminder that Ivanka Trump may have massively downplayed her role in her father’s presidential campaign, transition and White House administration."
"While Ivanka famously said she didn’t like to get involved much in politics, it appears now that she and her husband Jared Kushner have been major influences in some of President Donald Trump’s most controversial hiring and firing decisions, including the decision to fire former FBI Director James Comey, which led to the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller."
"In November 2016, three days after Trump won the election, Ivanka announced she had invited Flynn, a loyal supporter, to attend a transition meeting that was then chaired by New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. At the time Ivanka had worked in her father’s real estate company and as a lifestyle entrepreneur, but she had no experience in government service. Nonetheless, she was a member of the transition team’s executive council."
“Praising Flynn’s ‘amazing loyalty to my father,’ (Ivanka) turned to Flynn and asked, ‘General, what job do you want?’ A participant at the meeting said, ‘It was like Princess Ivanka had laid the sword on Flynn’s shoulders and said, ‘Rise and go forth.’ "
