Ivanka Trump just publicly defied her father when asked about the media (WATCH)

- 08.39

Despite her father’s incessant and dangerous references to the media as “the enemy of the people,” the First Daughter claims to not share Donald Trump’s views on the subject. While speaking with Axios’ Mike Allen, Ivanka Trump explained that she does not feel that the media is the enemy of the people, signaling a public break with the president, for whom she serves as a senior adviser.

Trump, for his part, has not only tweeted his disdain for a media intent on holding him accountable for his misdoings, but has gone so far as to stoke disdain for the press at his rallies, inviting a chorus of jeers and threats from his supporters onto the assembled press.

It has become clear that those who are not blindly loyal to the president will invite his ire. The media, by virtue of pressuring him to answer for his seemingly endless list of crimes, has done just that. Ivanka’s admission, however, serves as a bold rebuke to an otherwise unified administration.

Perhaps she’ll admit next that her father is clearly more of a threat to the people of this country than those who seek to hold him accountable.
