Adviser to POTUS and the admitted object of his lust, Ivanka Trump revealed that her time working for the White House may be ending. During an interview on Sunday morning with Face The Nation, CBS anchor Margaret Brennan asked daddy’s special girl about staying on in the administration where she serves as White House adviser along with her hairless husband, Jared Kushner. Ivanka told Face The Nation:
”I am driven first and foremost by my kids and their happiness. So that’s always going to be my top priority, and my decisions will always be flexible enough to ensure that their needs are being considered first and foremost. So, they will really drive that answer for me. I think for me, I came down here, it’s about the impact.”
During the interview, Ivanka gave herself credit for the new Federal Employee’s Parental Leave:
”…two and a half years of building our coalitions of support for this policy…”
But it’s her father’s opponents that government workers have to thank for the new benefits: House Democrats used POTUS’s bizarre drive for a Space Force to get the funding for the new paid leave policy.
The paid family leave bills that Ivanka supported aren’t anything like the straightforward 12 week guarantee in the defense bill. In the interview, Ivanka touted a bill that would offer families a loan of up to $5,000 to cover time off, and which would be repaid by cuts to the families’ child tax credits. A previous Ivanka plan, proposed by Senator Marco Rubio, would let families cover time off by paying for their leave out of their future Social Security income.
The new parental leave benefits for government employees in the FAMILY Act of 2019 would provide all workers with 12 weeks of paid leave. Yet in her interview, Ivanka dismissed the FAMILY Act as ”stale”.
Ivanka claims credit for the family leave policies at her own company:
”The fourth person I hired was pregnant when I hired her. So, we put a policy in place for her.”
Brennan pointed out:
”We went and looked, and Homeland Security says there are still around 900 children who remain separated from their families. Is that something you continue to remain engaged on when it comes to immigration?”
Feckless Ivanka countered with:
”Immigration is not part of my portfolio.”
Always the shining example of compassion, Ivanka went on:
”One of the things I’ve been most proud of is some of the work we’ve done around catalyzing the private sector to step up and invest in the skills and potential of American workers across the nation. Four million Americans will benefit from the pledges of over 350 companies to invest in their skills. It is incredible. That’s 14 million lives improved.”
