Your father says that climate change is a conspiracy invented by the Chinese. Shilling skincare products is not a good response right now

“The sun starts to heat up” — those Trumps and their bigly understanding of science. ????????

In April, the first daughter also faced scrutiny when a report surfaced that the Chinese factory that produces Ivanka Trump clothing underpays and overworks its employees.
Ever since President Donald Trump’s June 1 press conference (for which Ivanka was noticeably absent) to announce the United State’s withdrawal from the Paris Agreement — a deal between 196 nations to reduce emissions and prevent global warming — Ivanka, who serves as an adviser to the president, has been criticized for failing to sway her father from his stance on climate change.
During her father’s presidential campaign, Ivanka met with activist Al Gore, Environmental Protection Agency administrator Scott Pruitt, and Leonardo DiCaprio, the latter of whom gave Ivanka a copy of Before the Flood, a 2016 documentary on climate change that the actor co-produced.
On Wednesday, Us Weekly ran a cover story on Ivanka with the headline, “Ivanka Takes a Stand: Why I Disagree With My Dad.” While the article didn’t include an interview with Ivanka, an unnamed source told the magazine that she was “disappointed” by her dad’s decision to withdraw from the Paris Agreement “but she’s learned to take such defeats in stride.”
The article was mercilessly ridiculed on social media — including by people who believe that Ivanka is actually aligned with her father’s politics — and the hashtag #WhyIDisagreeWithMyDad was born.
