White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is not happy with the media’s coverage of Ivanka Trump. She said Ivanka has been treated unfairly.
“I frankly, I think it’s shameful the way that she’s been treated,” Sanders said during an interview with radio host Hugh Hewitt.
“If she didn’t have the same last name, they would be celebrating her,” she said. “They would be praising her. They would be thanking God that she is sitting in a position that she is to influence policy and help women across this country.
“And instead, they attack her, they shame her, and they belittle her. I think it’s very shameful, and I think it’s sad because she’s such a good advocate for so many women. And for them to attack her, I think, is just really disheartening.”
Sanders rattled off the work that Ivanka Trump has been doing in the White House.
“She’s done a great job working with the World Bank, through helping female entrepreneurs across the globe. They announced that that initiative was fully operational as of this week,” she added.
“I think being able to talk about those things, being able to highlight actual policy successes, is the best way to help show what she’s doing and what a success story she has.”
