The View Ivanka Trump Money


“The View” co-hosts slammed Ivanka Trump on Thursday for allegedly soliciting money from foreign countries. Check out the video below.

It was reported this week that Trump, who is now officially working in the White House, was starting a fund for female entrepreneurs, and wanted donations from foreign governments and businesses. On the ABC talk show, the panelists pointed out the problems with a government employee working on a private financial project. Whoopi Goldberg kicked off the discussion by pointedly saying, “I thought that was what the new guy was accusing then-candidate Hillary Clinton of doing with her foundation. Can anybody explain to me what the difference between the two is?”

Joy Behar said the difference is, “The Republicans are in power. They do whatever they want. That’s what happens.” Commented an angry Sunny Hostin, “And it’s illegal. It’s unethical and it’s illegal under the emoluments clause. Remember, this is a federal worker now. This is a federal employee, Ivanka Trump. She cannot do this.”

Jedediah Bila remarked, “I agree with the hypocrisy. I think this is totally crazy. She should not do this.” To be fair, though, she read a statement from the White House, which insisted that this “not a White House fund” and Trump will “not solicit” for it or have any “authority,” aside from apparently coming up with the idea. Bila wasn’t buying it, and neither was Goldberg, who fake giggled as her colleague gave the clarification. Watch below.
