Ivanka To Vote Republican This Election Season
Ivanka is Ready to Vote Republican
Previously, Ivanka Trump was a registered Democrat, which made her unable to vote for her own father in the 2016 New York primary. However, she is now ready and proud to vote for her father in the 2020 New York primary.
“I am a proud Trump Republican,” said Ivanka Trump on Monday in an interview with the New York Times. “I believe he’s broadened the reach of the Republican Party, which is really important to me.”

Ralph Lauren Signs Pledge to America’s Workers
Big news for Ivanka’s Pledge to America’s Workers!
Ralph Lauren, the luxury clothing company founded in 1967, signed the pledge earlier today – which commits to expanding programs that “educate, train, and reskill American workers from high-school age to near-retirement.”
However, no news website has published a story celebrating or even critiquing the announcement made by Ivanka Trump on Twitter, which stated:
“Thank you @RalphLauren for signing our #PledgetoAmericasWorkers and committing to on-the-job technical training & skill development for 30,000 employees!”
Although disappointing, this observation is far from surprising. Twitter users were boycotting Ralph Lauren in 2017 when Melania Trump wore a bold baby blue suit designed exclusively for her by the clothing brand. An anonymous source told Glamour:
“We immediately started to get complaints about Melania Trump wearing [the label]. And people are using the #boycottralphlauren hashtag.”
Regardless of who’s reporting, the partnership itself is what makes the difference! Over 300 companies have signed the Pledge to America’s Workers, and over 12 million new education and training opportunities have been created, according to The White House.
