Oh, Ivanka! “Everything about this arrangement signifies privilege and a special position for a presidential daughter that is nothing other than nepotism.” – @amandacarpenter #NeedtoImpeach #Nepotism #GaslightingAmerica https://t.co/V6LX5cj5RZ pic.twitter.com/kA2IYrhiKv

Amanda Carpenter, former senior staffer to Sen. Ted Cruz, had this to say about Ivanka Trump:
The only reason she’s getting West Wing space and the security clearance is because she is the President’s daughter. Because she’s a direct bloodline to the President. No one else has the kind of privilege that she does in this position.
What is most worrisome to me is the fact that she says as a way of smoothing over any concerns over this, they’re saying that she will “volunteer” to abide by ethics laws. No one else gets to volunteer to abide by ethics laws. You are expected to comply with them. Will she volunteer to go to jail if she does not comply with them? I don’t think so. Everything about this arrangement signifies privilege and a special position for a presidential daughter that is nothing other than nepotism.
By placing unqualified relatives in some of the nation’s most important positions, Donald Trump has put our country in danger and allowed his family and friends to profit off the White House, showing us the dangers of nepotism.
