Ivanka Trump thanked her father for his executive order ending child separation at the border this way:
Thank you @POTUS for taking critical action ending family separation at our border. Congress must now act + find a lasting solution that is consistent with our shared values;the same values that so many come here seeking as they endeavor to create a better life for their families

And how was that received?

To say the least.
Many of the people who were demanding an end to that policy do NOT seem happy with the announcement of an end to that policy, nor Ivanka’s appreciation for it. From blue checks all the way down, it’s nothing but anger:
"Thank you, Daddy, for not acting like Satan for a few minutes. You're my hero." https://t.co/wQztUt2VQh

translated: thank you dad, for creating a humanitarian crisis that you refused to solve for days, blamed on others, and said you couldn't address… until it became untenable and then you addressed it. but not really because you now have a family detention crisis on the horizon https://t.co/WezSSsPEfS

Thank you for ending the horror that he started? Thank you for proving he was a liar when he said that only Congress could stop this? Thank you for signing an order that won’t stand up in court? What exactly should we thank him for, @IvankaTrump? https://t.co/Nj4lcWknqF

This is disgusting. @realDonaldTrump uses what amounts to government-sponsored child abuse as a bargaining chip to force through his extreme agenda. We have a legal and moral obligation to protect the most vulnerable among us. #KeepFamiliesTogetherAct #FamiliesBelongTogether https://t.co/juZvsVoRcF

She literally just thanked her dad for "taking critical action" to end the policy of separating families that he created and promoted. https://t.co/cvNg9WWbXy

Your dad created this policy. Your dad ordered DHS to rip families apart. Your dad lied to justify not doing anything to stop it. Your dad called those affected by his actions "animals" who are "infesting" America. And you were silent.

It’s almost like no matter what decisions are made at the White House, the Resistance isn’t going to like them.
