Ivanka Trump was one of the members of the family that remained silent after Trump was impeached. According to PopCulture, she is finally speaking out and revealing what she truly thinks about the impeachment.
Most of the Trump family has stayed loyal to the patriarch. Eric Trump was very vocal on twitter lashing out against Washington Post and other outlets that celebrated the impeachment. Donald Trump Jr used the impeachment as an opportunity to push his Trump Christmas wrapping paper and ornaments.
On the other hand, Donald Trump is feigning indifference claiming that it doesn’t even feel like he’s being impeached. Apparently Ivanka Trump is right there with him and strongly believes that her father won’t be impeached.
“He said it didn’t even feel like he was being impeached,” Ivanka said parroting his father’s rally speech to “Face the Nation’s” Margaret Brennan.
“It is pretty unprecedented that support for impeachment has decreased over time as more information was presented to the American people,” she continued.
Ivanka is also refuting the claims that support for his impeachment has decreased even though it has increased to 54%.
“It’s decreased, not increased. So with all of this time spent, with all of these witnesses who didn’t have firsthand knowledge, with all of these people that have been paraded in front of the American people, support for this action has decreased. So, you know, I think he sees it for what it is, which is really just raw partisan politics,” she added.
Ivanka Trump, like her father and his supporters, believes that the means for impeachment are biased. The democrats have been accused of wanting to impeach Trump ever since he was elected and would’ve have used anything as an excuse to impeach him calling these trials a “sham.”
“This is historic, as you note. And in many ways, including the fact that it is the first purely partisan impeachment,” Ivanka said. “In fact, the only thing bipartisan was the vote against proceeding forward.”
While Donald Trump has been impeached by the House of Representatives, the other half of Congress, the Senate, has to vote to impeach Trump. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has already claimed that he and the majority of the Senate will be voting in favor of Donald Trump so it is highly unlikely that the president will be impeached.
Regardless of the outcome of the impeachment trial, Trump will be running in the 2020 election against whichever democratic candidate comes out on top.
