Silent no more, Ivanka Trump thanks father for border action

2018-06-21 08:12

Presidential adviser and daughter Ivanka Trump has broken her days-long silence about the forced separations of migrant families, tweeting thanks to President Donald Trump for "taking critical action" to end the separations at the border.

In her tweet on Wednesday, Ivanka Trump also calls on Congress to "find a lasting solution that is consistent with our shared values".

Her lack of comment on the border separations until her father's executive order had brought criticism to a presidential adviser who has billed herself as a "force for good" in the administration.

Ivanka Trump has sought to promote a family-friendly agenda under a president whose comments on race, gender and inclusivity have drawn bipartisan rebukes.

As Trump signed the executive order, he said that his daughter "feels very strongly" about the separations issue.
