Watch: Ivanka Calls Out AOC And Her Push For Free Stuff
I say “takes a poke,” because it’s not like she went out of her way to completely skewer AOC. She was asked a question and politely responded with her opinion. It wasn’t particularly fiery.
Fox News’ Steve Hilton asked: “You’ve got people who will see that offer from the Democrats, from the progressive Democrats, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: ‘Here’s the Green New Deal, here’s the guarantee of a job,’ and think, ‘yeah, that’s what I want, it’s that simple.’ What do you say to those people?”
“I don’t think most Americans, in their heart, want to be given something,” she said. “I’ve spent a lot of time traveling around this country over the last 4 years. People want to work for what they get.”
“So, I think that this idea of a guaranteed minimum is not something most people want,” she continued. “They want the ability to be able to secure a job. They want the ability to live in a country where’s there’s the potential for upward mobility.”
YES. We want to know that there’s a potential for moving up. That’s it. Bingo. Nailed it.
Hilton also asked Ivanka about the left’s current obsession with socialism. Will that work for them in 2020?
“I think fundamentally if you ask yourself the question, ‘are we better today than we were yesterday or we were 2 years ago?’ The answer is, undoubtedly, yes,” Ivanka said. “So, as an American, families sitting down and thinking about their financial situation relative to a month ago or a year ago, America is doing very well and it stands in quite sharp contrast to the rest of the world. So, not only are we doing well, much of the world has slowed down in terms of the pace of their growth.”
In other words, WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO JUMP OFF THIS PATH AND EMBRACE A FAILED ECONOMIC SYSTEM?!?! Sorry about the all caps. I just hate socialism.
Her full interview will air this Sunday!
