Ivanka Trump Named ‘Most Powerful Jewish Woman’ — Twitter Says ‘Yeah, Right’

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

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.

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.
