Ivanka tries to have it both ways: Trump's daughter and #MeToo supporter

"The daughter of US President Donald Trump voiced her support for Winfrey's "empowering & inspiring speech" and called on everyone to come together and say "#TIMESUP", referencing the campaign launched this month by women in Hollywood to fight sexual harassment. Oprah has previously said she has no interest in running for office, but some reports have said she's considering challenging Trump in the next election - leading Ivanka Trump's tweet to raise a lot of eyebrows. Actor Natasha Rothwell also weighed in, reminding Ivanka of the accusations against her dad, as did author Michael Wolff, who said, "Who does she think her father is?"

"It's unfortunate too because you don't want to speak badly of the president's family". However, the Internet hasn't exactly taken kindly to her message with many wondering if she remembered what her father, Donald Trump stands accused of.

Ivanka Trump has faced widespread criticism online after taking to Twitter on Monday to praise Oprah Winfrey for her Golden Globes speech which called out sexual abusers and promised "a new day is on the horizon". A spokesman on Tuesday declined to comment on Ivanka Trump's private support for the #MeToo movement, or her tweet. At the W20 in Germany past year, Ivanka spoke about employment rights and suggested her father was "a tremendous champion of supporting families", prompting the audience to boo her, while her family leave plan was criticized by feminist icon Gloria Steinem as "the policy of every authoritarian regime".
