Buckle up—we have another "Fox and Friends" interview where both the interviewer and interviewee praise President Donald Trump. Monday's interview with Ivanka Trump, the president's oldest daughter and one of his senior advisers, resulted in some interesting answers.
"I try to stay out of politics," Ivanka said, when asked about the president's use of social media. "I don't profess to be a political savant, so I leave the politics to other people and really lean into the issues that I care deeply about." We get it, she's focused on the issues, rather than the "politics" of the situation. However, as one of the people with possibly the most influence on the leader of our country, it's simply false that she's uninvolved in politics.

In fact, it's bordering on offensive to shrug off politics as something she doesn't want to be interested in. The issues she says she cares about (i.e. women's rights) are deeply rooted in the political process, and in the party her father represents. If she can't come to grips with that, maybe she shouldn't be so close to the Oval Office. Her job—literally a senior adviser to the POTUS—means she doesn't get to "leave politics to other people."
When asked what specifically she and her father disagree on, she refused to go into detail. "Naturally, there are areas where there's disagreement," Ivanka said. "We're two different human beings, so I like to focus instead on areas where I can add positive value, where I can contribute to the agenda."
She wasn't asked if there was disagreement; she was asked what they disagree on. A smart answer to protect her father, especially as the next day's headlines would probably be all, "Ivanka and her father disagree on ____."
Lastly, she gave the president an 'A' for his performance, even though she believes she is slightly biased, according to CNN. Um, yeah, given that she's Trump's daughter, "slightly" is probably an understatement.
