White House adviser Ivanka Trump on Tuesday slapped down New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal” plan to boost jobs in an interview on Fox News.
“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?” Trump, the daughter of President Donald Trump, was asked by Fox News host Steve Hilton in an interview that will air on Sunday.
“I don’t think most Americans, in their heart, want to be given something. I’ve spent a lot of time traveling around this country over the last four years. People want to work for what they get,” said Trump.
“So, I think that this idea of a guaranteed minimum is not something most people want. 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,” she added.
Trump went on to say that her father’s policies are “continuing to allow this economy to thrive.”
