Ivanka Trump was declared “America’s most powerful Jewish woman” in an article on CNN.com today. Twitter had a few things to say.

If Ivanka Trump is my “most powerful” ally as both a gay man and a Jew, I should start packing for one of her dad’s camps.— Steve Silberman (@stevesilberman) June 2, 2017
There was also Trump’s tweet today that she was “proud to support my LGBTQ friends and the LGBTQ Americans” on the same day that her father skipped a seven-year-old tradition of declaring June to be Pride Month. The response was swift.

You openly supported and campaigned for the most anti-LGBTQ+ presidential ticket in recent times. Your words mean nothing to us.— Jordan (@jordansdiamonds) June 2, 2017
Many more skeptics referred to the first daughter’s supposed “moderating” influence on her father. In an interview with the New York Times last month, Ivanka Trump had listed “climate, deportation, education and refugee policy” as the areas where she would try to guide the president. The Trump administration has since pulled out of the Paris Agreement, dramatically increased the number of undocumented immigrant arrests, cut arts education funding significantly, and continued to stand against refugee intake.
