Ivanka Admits She's Taken Aback By "Level Of Viciousness" Surrounding Her Father

It’s been nearly five months since President Donald Trump took office, and that time frame has been anything but boring. There has been an endless amount of news surrounding the Trump administration, and the vast majority of it falls on the negative side. Trump entered office with some very big plans, but he’s been unable to make too much headway. White House staff seems to spend an inordinate amount of time responding to the various controversies swirling about, and that doesn’t look like something that will be changing anytime soon.

As The Hill shares, the whole experience has been a little surprising for First Daughter Ivanka Trump. She notes that it’s been a little harder to focus on some of the things she’d prefer to prioritize, and that’s a byproduct of the negativity.

"There is a level of viciousness that I was not expecting," she said. "I was not expecting the intensity of this experience, but this isn't supposed to be easy."

Ivanka made her comments during an appearance on ‘Fox & Friends,’ and she’s hoping that this won’t be the story for her father’s entire term in office. She notes that Trump "intends to be transformative. And we want to do big, bold things and we're looking to change the status quo.”

That’s partially why her father was able to win the election in the first place, but his efforts to ‘drain the swamp’ have been met with resistance. The vast majority of the mainstream media reports things from a decidedly anti-Trump slant, and Democratic leaders carry through that narrative to Capitol Hill. In essence, Trump is portrayed as some kind of a dangerous man that simply can not be trusted because he has ulterior motives. That’s incredibly unfair, but the world of politics is not known for having hard and fast rules about what makes for a level playing field.

"So I didn't expect it to be easy. I think some of the distractions and some of the ferocity was, I was a little blindsided by at a personal level," Ivanka continued. "I'm trying to keep my head down, not listen to the noise. And just work really hard to make a positive impact in the lives of many people."

Ivanka has been subjected to a ridiculous amount of verbal abuse in her own right, and her greatest sin appears to be that she’s the daughter of a sitting president. To her credit, she manages to hold her head up high and carry herself with class in spite of it, but you can be sure it’s wearing on her deep down inside.

As for the viciousness surrounding the Trump presidency, it looks like it’s here to stay. That’s incredibly unfortunate, as he should at least be given the opportunity to prove his worth before earning such backlash. The ultimate goal of critics and detractors appears to be driving him out of office, or at the very least ensuring that he accomplishes nothing during his time as president. That’s an incredibly sad commentary on the current state of politics, which appears to have reached the lowest point in our nation’s history.
