Sarah Sanders Defends Ivanka After AOC Criticizes First Daughter

July 02, 2019Jul 02, 2019

Sarah Sanders is sticking up for the First Family in a big league way. She just spoke out to defend Ivanka Trump after AOC publicly attacked her.

"Ocasio-Cortez called out Ivanka and said on Twitter that 'being someone’s daughter actually isn’t a career qualification.' 'It hurts our diplomatic standing when the President phones it in & the world moves on. The US needs our President working the G20. Bringing a qualified diplomat couldn’t hurt either,' the freshman representative continued.

Ivanka represented the U.S. in meetings with leaders from China, Japan, Russia, India, and Australia during the summit in Osaka, the South China Morning Post reported.

Sanders took to Twitter to fire back.

"Phoning it in @AOC is wasting your time on Twitter while destroying jobs in NY. @realDonaldTrump & @IvankaTrump actually created millions of new jobs and continue to make the US stronger on the global stage but thank you for reminding Americans every day why they elected Trump," wrote Sanders on her Twitter profile.

AOC has yet to respond to Sarah's tweet. Many praised Sanders for sticking up for Ivanka.

"Ocasio-Cortez played a major role in thwarting Amazon’s plans to build part of its HQ2 in Long Island City. She was one of several elected officials who pushed back on Amazon's planned expansion pointing at the secrecy of the deal itself, the lack of public input and the potential for gentrification and displacement resulting from 25,000 new highly paid tech workers in the area," according to Fox.
