Why I Don't Speak Out Against My Father, Ivanka Trump Breaks Silence

Ivanka Trump is pushing back against people who criticize her for not publicly condemning President Trump’s caustic statements and controversial proposals.
“Some people have created unrealistic expectations of what they expect from me,” Ivanka, first daughter and special White House adviser, said in an interview published Thursday in the Financial Times. “That my presence in and of itself would carry so much weight with my father that he would abandon his core values and the agenda that the American people voted for when they elected him. It’s not going to happen. To those critics, shy of turning my father into a liberal, I’d be a failure to them.”

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.”
