Ivanka Trump Responds to Yet Another Question of ‘Complicity’ from the Media

First daughter Ivanka Trump was asked in a NBC news interview Tuesday about a German paper that wondered if she would be a “loyal accomplice” to her father.

Unsurprisingly, Ivanka said she didn’t like the word ‘accomplice’ “because, in this context, I don't know that that's productive."

Accomplice is defined by Merriam-Webster dictionary as “one associated with another especially in wrongdoing.”

This is the second time the media has asked Ivanka about her relationship to her father’s administration by using a word that implies criminal activity or wrongdoing.

A CBS interviewer asked Ivanka whether she was “complicit in what is happening to the White House.”

“If being complicit is wanting to be a force for good and to make a positive impact, then I’m complicit,” she said. “I hope to make a positive impact. I don’t know what it means to be-- complicit-- but-- but, you know, I hope time will prove that I have-- done a good job and much more importantly, that my father’s administration is the success that I know it will be.”

Complicit is defined as “helping to commit a crime or do wrong in some way.”

Perhaps the media should define what criminal activity they’re wondering whether Ivanka’s complicit in if they’re going to continually question Ivanka’s complicity with her father.
