Many leftists are not happy at all following news that Ivanka Trump will be getting her own West Wing office and security clearance to boot.
According to The Guardian, Trump advisor Jamie Gorelick confirmed the news earlier today, stating that although Ivanka does not have an official title in the White House, she will be gaining access to classified information in addition to her own office.
Gorelick also reportedly states that Ivanka will be her father’s “eyes and ears” on a wide range of issues.
Ivanka allegedly delivered a statement to Politico which reads:
I will continue to offer my father my candid advice and counsel, as I have for my entire life. While there is no modern precedent for an adult child of the president, I will voluntarily follow all of the ethics rules placed on government employees.
Politico’s article on the topic also states that numerous ethics watchdogs are questioning whether or not Ivanka will be able to effectively follow those ethics rules.
Some are also questioning why Ivanka Trump cannot join Trump’s administration as a paid employee.
While these are all arguably valid questions, many liberals on social media appear to have made their attacks against Ivanka personal via vile statements about her.
