Ivanka Trump talks about activities she took up during pandemic amidst increasing unemployment and poverty
White House adviser Ivanka Trump is currently on the campaign trail to boost her father Donald Trump’s reelection chances with less than two weeks to go until the elections. As more and more Americans suffer in this pandemic, Ivanka talked about the activities she took up.
In an interview this week, Ivanka talked about how she spent this pandemic so far, and the White House adviser shared that she was playing board games again as well as learning how to play the guitar. Her comments come as a recent report revealing that eight million Americans have now come into poverty since May.
“For a lot of us during this pandemic, we’ve reconnected to some of life’s simple pleasures -- board games for example. We’ve dusted off all of ours for sure,” said Ivanka. “I took up playing guitar because my husband was working very late nights I would come home and put the kids to bed and after I went back online and finished my work, I’d be sitting there. So I taught myself, or I am teaching myself how to play the guitar.”
Footage of her interview went around on the internet and many users criticized Donald Trump’s eldest daughter, saying that her comments were “tone-deaf.” One user noted that she does not have to worry about rent or food while other users noted how many Americans have succumbed to the coronavirus in several states or on a national scale. The US death toll for COVID-19 has reached over 220,000 and experts have warned that the number could reach 230,000 by the November elections.
That is not the only criticism that Ivanka has received this week, as a US ethics watchdog called CREW or Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington noted that she violated ethics regulations a total of eight times in two days. They pointed to Ivanka’s tweets from October 11 to October 13 where she promoted her father’s reelection campaign.
The watchdog cited that she is using her Twitter account for political aside from government purposes. This suggests that Ivanka is using her time, her title, and position as an executive employee to boost the Trump campaign.
