White House Sources Just Revealed Ivanka Trump Has Given Up Fighting For LGBT Equality

When President Trump and his family took power, his daughter Ivanka was celebrated in the mainstream media as a “moderating influence” on her stubborn and bigoted father.

But over the past few months, it’s clear that the so-called “feminist” and “LGBT ally” has no real commitment to fighting for any kind of substantial change beyond a few superficial tweets and hawking some faux-empowerment slogans for $29.99.

Her plan to fight for more paid family leave for women has already collapsed and hasn’t been heard of in a month.

Now it appears that Ivanka’s supposed support for the LGBT community is also nothing but a tool to be deployed for her image and does not stem any real moral conviction about the rights of LGBT Americans.

The Daily Beast reports that the two have decided to abandon fighting for LGBT initiatives because it would be better for their “political capital be spent elsewhere,” capitulating in the face of pressure from extremists like Steve Bannon and Mike Pence despite being the one person in the White House who might be able to pressure her father to act otherwise.

As Trump rolls out his appalling ban on transgender Americans serving in the military, Ivanka Trump has stayed dutifully silent, ignoring her previous pronouncements of support for both the LGBT community and every American fighting in our military.

It just goes to show that for a wealthy, privileged woman like Ivanka, activism and empowerment are just useful buzzwords to be employed when it suits her – and her personal brand.
