CBS Reporter Attempts To Embarrass Ivanka, Immediately Regrets Her Decision

The president's daughter sat down for her first interview since she was promoted to the role of her father's assistant. Critics have charged Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, as being 'complicit' with President Donald Trump. Ivanka tried to defend her family, but it didn't go very well. She just handed her critics fuel for the fire.

When CBS 'This Morning' asked Ivanka and her husband were being 'complicit' with president Trump, she responded, "If being complicit is wanting to, is wanting to be a force for good and to make a positive impact then I’m complicit.

"I don’t know that the critics who may say that of me, if they found themselves in this very unique and unprecedented situation that I am now in, would do any differently than I am doing,” said Ms. Trump. “So I hope to make a positive impact. I don’t know what it means to be complicit, but you know, I hope time will prove that I have done a good job and much more importantly that my father’s administration is the success that I know it will be.”

After admitting she didn't know what 'complicit' meant, and saying that she was 'complicit', her father's critics raked her over the coals in the news the next day. While most would understand what the first daughter was trying to say, it was a poor choice of word and subsequently a mistake.

For the rest of the interview, Ivanka came off much better. When she was asked why she doesn't challenge the POTUS's positions on things such as Planned Parenthood, gay rights or climate change, she responded, "I would say not to conflate lack of public denouncement with silence."

She explains that protests or denouncing issues on the news every night are not the only way to make your point. "So where I disagree with my father, he knows it, and I express myself with total candor," she explains. "Where I agree, I fully lean in and support the agenda and hope that I can be an asset to him and make a positive impact. But I respect the fact that he always listens. It’s how he was in business. It’s how he is as president.”
