Hillary Clinton rips Ivanka Trump for giving “lip service” and “staying silent” to Donald Trump’s agenda, even when it is contrary to her points of view.
Clinton, who is promoting her new book, What Happened, was asked in an interview with Refinery29 if Trump’s daughter should be held responsible for her father’s actions. She replied:
“Everyone associated with him … they’re either on board with that, or they’re not. And if they’re not, they need to be speaking out or leaving. But if they remain silent and just give lip service to contrary points of views, then they are part of his agenda and should be judged and held accountable for that.”
Clinton also talked about Donald Trump’s sexism:
“When someone who is now our president in the White House gives voice to those kinds of degrading comments about women, who’s caught on tape saying those kinds of things, it gives a license to people to be more outspoken against women, against our progress, against our rights. And I think it’s really important for young women to recognize yes, we’ve made progress, but we have to all continue to stand up for ourselves, to stand up for each other, to stand up for the laws that we need, and to take on the the sexism that is so prevalent and which has been given a real boost by Trump.”
