Both Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, also a senior White House adviser, have come under fire for not speaking out publicly against the president’s controversial statements and policies.
In an interview with Refinery 29 earlier this week, Hillary Clinton was asked whether Ivanka Trump is “complicit” in the administration’s actions.
Clinton said that while President Trump should ultimately be held responsible for trying to impose a political agenda that turns the clock back on American values, “everyone associated with him … they’re either on board with that, or they’re not.”

“And if they’re not, they need to be speaking out or leaving,” the former Democratic nominee added. “But if they remain silent and just give lip service to contrary points of views, then they are part of his agenda and should be judged and held accountable for that.”
But Ivanka Trump says that speaking out against her father is not an option if she wants to remain in the White House.
“To voice dissent publicly would mean I’m not part of the team,” she said. “When you’re part of a team, you’re part of a team. That doesn’t mean everyone in the White House has homogeneous views — we don’t, and I think that’s good and healthy — but that doesn’t mean we’re publicly undermining [each other] and this administration.”
