Ivanka Trump shocked millions of her father’s supporters today when she announced that she plans to use her role as first daughter to promote “liberal causes” such as combatting climate change.
The Blaze reported that Ivanka wants to make climate change “one of her signature issues,” which is surprising given the fact that Donald Trump has repeatedly called climate change a “hoax.”
NBC News just called it the great freeze – coldest weather in years. Is our country still spending money on the GLOBAL WARMING HOAX?

“The issues she’s talking about are ones she’s always talked about,” a source close to Ivanka told Politico. “These are totally consistent with what she’s developed with her brand. She is playing a critical role in being able to have issues that moderate and liberal women care about — and creating a bridge to the other side.”
The source added that Ivanka is “in the early stages of exploring how to use her spotlight to speak out” on climate change.”
Politico reported that though Ivanka has no plans to move to Washington D.C., she is “searching for a chief of staff and other hires to help shape her new role.” She also may perform some of the roles that are traditionally carried out by the first lady.
