Has Ivanka Trump finally lost all credibility?
‘I don't know that the critics who say I am complicit, if they found themselves in this very unique and unprecedented situation that I am now in, would do any differently than I am doing’
I have found myself unhealthily fascinated by Ivanka Trump’s Instagram account in the seven months since her father Donald Trump officially took office.
Through every political hand grenade Trump Senior has lobbed from the Oval Office – his controversial immigration ban, sacking FBI director James Comey amid a growing Russian collusion scandal, threatening to remove healthcare from 20 million Americans – Ivanka has kept up a consistently sunny picture of life in Washington: shots of her children skipping across the White House lawn, ‘go get ’em’ feminist quotes and round table photo ops with world leaders to prop up the flawed pro-women agenda she first began to peddle in her tone deaf book,Women Who Work.
A few of these posts have landed Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner in hot water, including a badly timed ‘date night’ shot and glimpses of a million-dollar art collection the couple had apparently failed to disclose in financial documents.
But more than anything else, I’m fascinated by the account as a potential window into the mind of a woman arguably closer to the President than his own wife, and whose work at the forefront of his election campaign last year presented a tiny sliver of hope that a Trump Presidency could be tempered by her more liberal influence.
All hope of that has of course long vanished, and Trump’s comments following last weekend’s events in Charlottesville not only serve to underline his daughter’s toothless influence on him, but his direct betrayal of her own community puts her in a more exposed position than ever before.
Ivanka met property developer-turned-White House advisor Jared Kushner in 2005 and completed an Orthodox conversion to Judaism before their marriage in 2009. Since then she has reportedly kept a kosher diet and observes Shabbat each weekend, beginning at sunset on a Friday when she and Kushner switch their phones off for 25 hours.
