Ivanka Trump Calls Herself A ‘Force For Good’ As Her Dad Guts Protections For Women

As Donald Trump eliminated protections for women when it comes to equal pay and sexual harassment, the most high-profile woman in the Trump White House is saying she is a “force for good.”

In an interview with Gayle King of CBS, Ivanka Trump, who claims to be an advocate for women, said she simply wants “to make a positive impact” on the new administration, though she may want to take a look at what her dad’s been up to.

After being asked by King what she thinks of the accusation that she is “complicit” in her father’s dangerous agenda, Ivanka Trump said:

If being complicit is wanting to be a force for good and to make a positive impact then I’m complicit. I don’t know that the critics who may say that of me – if they found themselves in this very unique and unprecedented situation that I am now in – would do any differently than I’m doing. So I hope to make a positive impact. I don’t know what it means to be complicit, but I hope time will prove that I have done a good job and, much more important, that my father’s administration is the success that I know it will be.

Of course, the claim by Ivanka Trump that she is a force for good rang hollow on Tuesday as the president recently signed an executive order that would be anything but good for American women.

Just days ago, as NBC News reported, Donald Trump undid President Barack Obama’s 2014 Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces executive order that ensured companies with federal contracts adhered to more than a dozen labor and civil rights laws.

Two rules, in particular, were included in Obama’s order and specifically helped women – one requiring wage transparency and another making it more difficult for men to get away with sexual harassment. Nonetheless, the president didn’t hesitate to gut the protections.

If Ivanka Trump thinks she is a force for good in this White House, particularly for women, then she isn’t paying very much attention to what her father is doing. She may, indeed, want to make a positive impact, but she certainly hasn’t yet.
