We have all been able to see how much of a scourge that the Trump administration has proven to be for the underprivileged minorities in the United States — all of us, apparently, except Ivanka Trump.
For example, although the administration has presently been ordered by a judge to again begin accepting applications for renewals of protections, the White House has moved to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA program, which is meant to protect young undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children from the threat of deportation.
In addition, the president has repeatedly sought to undercut the nation’s health care system for the sake of increasing the profitability of the health insurance market. Those affected by millions potentially getting kicked off of their health coverage because of these moves include large swaths of U.S. minority communities. It’s not as though people use their health coverage for fun — they need it to survive, and yet the Trump administration doesn’t mind the reports of their moves potentially taking health coverage from millions of Americans.
The issues go on from there, with the president routinely stoking tensions in the United States and widening the divisions in the U.S. through his incendiary racist rhetoric — but in Ivanka Trump’s world, it’s not clear if any of these issues actually exist.
For Martin Luther King Jr. Day this Monday, Ivanka took to Twitter to offer a message of support for the late civil rights activists’ legacy, even though the administration run by her father that she participates in is the antithesis to the meaning of Dr. King’s life work.
‘Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was one of the world’s great heroes. Today we honor his profound life and legacy.’
Someone should tell her that if she’s so concerned about advancing Dr. King’s ideals, she should distance herself from her father’s administration — or maybe she’s not so concerned with it after all.
