Ivanka Suggests Possibility of Accepting Syrian Refugees

Ivanka Trump Wednesday said allowing Syrian refugees into the U.S. “has to be part of the discussion” of how best to solve the humanitarian crisis plaguing the Arab world.

This would, um, appear to put her in conflict with President Trump, who has signed executive orders seeking to ban Syrian refugees from the United States as a national security risk. Not to mention campaigning on the same idea.

“I think there is a global humanitarian crisis that’s happening, and we have to come together, and we have to solve it,” Ivanka Trump told NBC News reporter Hallie Jackson.

“Does that include opening the border to Syrian refugees in the U.S.?” Jackson replied.

“That has to be part of the discussion, but that’s not going to be enough in and of itself,” Ivanka replied.

  1. I am hearing too much from Ivanka Trump to my liking.

    I am not going to very popular here, but this is what I have been thinking lately after watching Trump implement or not implement some of his key policies/promises, especially immigration and Obamacare.

    I am beginning to believe Trump is satisfied with a one term Presidency. That he believes in much of what he said but not enough to take strong action to do it or make the sacrifice of two terms to do it.

    I don’t discount that he is preparing the path for Jared Kushner and the GOPe. If Kushner does not run for President, it will be some position that makes a Presidential run Jahred, Ivanka and the GOPe. If that’s th future, President Trump cannot afford to go to far afield of their thinking.

    I understand it takes a while to turn a ship, especially with the winds against you. I appreciate that he is not HRC (which we the people had a great deal to do with) and has the chance to prevent SCOTUS from becoming a kangaroo court. Economically and foreign policy is good. But his domestic policy and waffling on key issues do not speak to his base.

    So, if they can hold onto it, the future belongs to the GOPe.

    I think he is fine with one term.

  2. No, no, no and frigging NO! SHE was not elected. If we wanted a Democrat running policy we’d have elected Hillary.
    At least when JFK appointed Bobby attorney general they were representing the voters that elected JFK. Ivanka is showing more and more to be the polar opposite of the voters that elected daddy.

    • Also take a good look at the West Wing which is teeming with GOPe and anti Trumpers. I posted a Breitbart link just recently about a new Director of something of Media Relations — anti Trumper, worked with Priebus at RNC etc.

      I am not all cray cray about Trump here, but it’s jst making me more watchful. And it might be what is slowing him down on that swamp draining of Obama/Clinton people in key Departments, Justice, State, IRS, FBI.

    • “The Presidency isn’t a family run business.”

      Good thing Hillary didn’t win…it would have been Hill/Bill/Chelsea 24/7.

    • Agree! I did not vote for her, I voted for her father. And it’s poor form that she is now an advisor to him (officially) and says B while he says A. I don’t like it.

    • I beg to differ w/Ivanka on this. She needs to STFU. I have liked her, but she’s not president.
      I want NO refugees here. We can’t take on the world. I would be willing to ship many lib/dems to the giant sandbox. My son lived in NZ for six years and they were extremely tough on immigration and “overstayers”. We should have closed the doors YEARS ago.

  3. Re Ivanka, I’d say “a little too pushy, a lot too soon,” since I’ve said here that she is in danger of being Kardashian-ized.

    • Considering it’s the Christians that are actually being persecuted and killed and it’s the Muslims that are just running away from their own country, then yeh, Christian fine with me and the Muslims need to fix their 7th century b.s. over there rather than demanding they be allowed to export into western civilization.
      When even the Muslim countries surrounding Syria won’t take the refugees that speaks volumes.

  4. Part of the discussion: “Shall we take in some Syrian refugees?” “No.” “Next topic?”

    She’s muddying the waters so her father has more negotiation room.

  5. Who the heck crowned Ivanka queen? She needs to stop being a NYC lib and keep quiet. Nobody wants Syrian refugees, unless she is going to keep them in one of her penthouse apartments. I am getting tired of her dumb remarks!!

    San Fran is organizing another Immigrant Free day May 1st. I wonder how to tabulate the entire associated costs of Visa fraud & illegal immigration? If all related extra dollars spent on Health care, food-stamps, housing, births, education, SSI, disability, bogus tax refunds, Anchor babies, additional Fed. State & City policing, Prison & Jail, Etc. the numbers would stagger us.
    The untold tragic number of US Citizens lives lost continues to climb unabated.
    There is NO immigrant “free” day!
    Besides the 1st is a Mon. & Cinco De Mayo is Fri., looks like a short week.
