On Monday night, appearing on the “Late Show” with host Stephen Colbert, Chelsea Clinton stated that attacking Ivanka Trump was just fine with her. Clinton posited, “I think anyone who works for the president should expect to be scrutinized for whatever decisions not only he or she is making, but whatever decisions the White House is making on any given day.”
Last month, Ivanka Trump said it was “inappropriate” to question her about sexual misconduct allegations against President Trump, asserting, "I don't think that's a question you would ask many other daughters. I believe my father; I know my father, so I think I have that right as a daughter to believe my father.”
Despite the fact that she and Ivanka Trump used to be friends, Clinton told Colbert, “It’s clear though that she has supported policies and decisions that I don’t agree with.”
In a 2016 interview with Fox News, Ivanka Trump called Clinton a “great friend,” adding, “"I think we have a great respect for each other and that hasn't changed. … We're not the candidates. We're the children of the candidates. We've stayed close to one another, maybe a little less publicly so, but she's a good friend. We support each other."
Colbert asked Clinton, “Could you call her up and say, ‘Hey, maybe no war with North Korea?’” Clinton answered, “I certainly am just really sad that we’re at a point in time that that even has to be said. … I mean, that we’re at a point in time where we have a president who has such a callous disregard for a thoughtful, coherent, kind of expert-advised foreign policy is something I would hope regardless of where we sit on the political spectrum, we could agree on. … I think unfortunately this administration is the collision of cruelty and incompetence.”
