Former first daughter Chelsea Clinton and first daughter Ivanka Trump were once friends.
According to new reports, though, that is no longer the case, as the two have had an apparent falling out over Ivanka’s father’s presidency.
Awkward Moment at Bush Funeral
The “falling out” started to gain new interest due to the rather tepid atmosphere between the two during President George H.W. Bush’s memorial service this week.
While seated next to each other, they interacted briefly and both seemed as though they would rather be sitting somewhere else.
It is not exactly a secret Ivanka Trump is a bit more progressive than one would expect from a Republican first daughter.
As such, causes she supports, like addressing the gender pay gap, are right in line with those supported by Chelsea Clinton.
In fact, in Bob Woodward’s new book, “Fear,” Ivanka’s ideology is mentioned several times for creating conflict within the current administration.
However, she is also very loyal and defensive of her father, something that apparently is just too much for Clinton to handle.
Pretty ironic considering the past of her father!
The Falling Out
Prior to Donald Trump running for President, Chelsea and Ivanka were seen together rather frequently.
Both grew up in many of the same wealthy, upper-class circles and counted each other as friends.
After Donald Trump became president, that all changed.
Chelsea offered some insight on that during an appearance on the “The Late Show” earlier this year.
“I have not spoken to [Ivanka] in a long time,” she said.
“It’s clear, though, that she has supported policies and decisions that I don’t agree with. I’ve been very vocal about my opposition to President Trump and this White House,” Chelsea added.
This is a friendship that’s unlikely to be mended anytime in the near future, especially now with rumors flying about investigations into the Clinton Foundation and a possible renewal of the Hillary email investigation.
