"People want to work for what they get," says billionaire Ivanka Trump, who was both born into and who married into extreme wealth
Advisor to the President Ivanka Trump is attacking the policies of a newly-elected U.S. Congresswoman from New York City, and insisting that Americans "want to work for what they get."
The First Daughter told Fox News in an interview that will air Sunday, that she believes Americans do not support the Green New Deal, a bill sponsored by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Senator Ed Markey (D-MA). The Green New Deal is a plan to dramatically battle both climate change and income inequality, although the climate change aspects tends to get the most attention.
Ivanka Trump was asked about the portion of the Green New Deal that advocates for “guaranteeing a job with a family-sustaining wage,” which means work at a fair wage, not free money – contrary to Trump's allegation.
"I don't think most Americans, in their heart, want to be given something," the billionaire First Daughter told Fox News. "I've spent a lot of time traveling this country over the last four years. People want to work for what they get."
"So, I think this idea of a guaranteed minimum is not something most people want," she claimed.
The President's daughter, whose father is reportedly worth billions, jointly with her husband is worth about $1.1 billion. Even though she does not draw a White House salary Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, reportedly made a combined $83 million last year.
