Chelsea Clinton and Ivanka Trump’s Friendship
The political world was wonderfully shocked to learn that Ivanka Trump and Chelsea Clinton are bipartisan BFFs – however with the election warming up, could their parents’ presidential rivalry put a damper on their friendship?
Chelsea says she won’t let that happen.
“friendship is constantly more vital than legislative issues,” the previous First Daughter tells PEOPLE. “I learned that growing up, watching my parents be friends with individuals over the political range in Arkansas.”
Without a doubt, Chelsea’s mother, Hillary Clinton, used to count Ivanka’s father, Donald Trump, as one of those bipartisan buddies – the previous secretary of state even went to the real estate mogul’s wedding to wife Melania in 2005, and amid friendlier times, Donald donated countless dollars to the Clinton Foundation.
Be that as it may, after the two secured their spots as leaders of their respective political parties, things immediately soured.
The billionaire businessman has publicly called his Democratic partner a criminal and the “worst secretary of state ever.,” while Hillary as of late slammed Donald in a nationally televised interview for “defaming people.” “He is the competitor of being against [people],” she told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell.
In spite of their parents’ political contrasts, Chelsea appears to be confident that her association with Ivanka will weather the 2016 storm.
“I’m truly thankful that Ivanka’s my friend,” she says, clarifying that the two first connected after their spouses got to be friends. Be that as it may, the bond the ladies framed over double dates has developed into a friendship based on genuine mutual respect and admiration.
