Silent no more, Ivanka Trump thanks father for border action

MSNBC's Morning Joe hosts slammed Ivanka Trump for her silence over the president's "zero tolerance" immigration policy and the consequent family separations, telling her that she "should get on the plane this morning and go down to the border". "Congress must now act + find a lasting solution that is consistent with our shared values; the same values that so many come here seeking as they endeavor to create a better life for their families".

He noted that she had brought him pictures of young children who had been separated at the border from their families and pressed him to change the policy, which contributed to him signing an executive order on Wednesday allowing children to stay with parents caught crossing the border illegally.

Ivanka Trump has sought to promote a family-friendly agenda under a president whose comments on race, gender and inclusivity have drawn bipartisan rebukes.

"Ivanka feels very strongly", Trump said Wednesday. And it wasn't the first time that Ivanka Trump, as well as her husband and fellow influential presidential adviser, Jared Kushner, had tried to fly under the radar during crisis and tumult in her father's administration.

Ivanka Trump was targeted recently by late-night comedian Samantha Bee over immigration policy, though Bee apologized for using a crude epithet to describe her.

As might be expected, many people on Twitter had problems with her post.

She and her husband also got criticized by some in the West Wing for being absent during hard moments; they were off on a ski vacation when the GOP's healthcare plan collapsed previous year. "We don't like to see families separated".

The president has been getting pummeled as tensions rise over the immigration crisis.
