Chelsea Shades Ivanka Amid Reports Her Old Friend Visited Putin


Chelsea Shades Ivanka Amid Reports Her Old Friend Visited Putin

It’s been known since the start of the 2016 Presidential Election season that Chelsea Clinton and Ivanka Trump have had a longstanding friendship, despite their parents’ bitter political rivalry. But a new tweet sent by the former first daughter about the current first daughter has many calling Clinton out.

It started Monday with The New York Times publishing a report about a 2015 email exchange between President Donald Trump‘s business associate Felix Sater and lawyer Michael Cohen, claiming Sater made arrangements for Ivanka’s 2006 trip to Russia.

Sater alleges in his email that the trip included a private stop at Vladimir Putin’s private office where he wrote that Ivanka sat “in Putin’s private chair at his desk and office in the Kremlin.”

35-year-old Ivanka confirmed to the Times she took “a brief tour of Red Square and the Kremlin” in 2006 as a tourist, but that she didn’t remember sitting in Putin’s chair, adding that she has “never met President Vladimir Putin.”

But of course, Ivanka’s critics used her tourist experience as yet another example of the president’s dangerous ties to Russia — since Sater had boasted building a Trump Tower in Moscow would help get the Russian government on Team Trump writing:

“Our boy can become president of the USA and we can engineer it. I will get all of Putins team to buy in on this, I will manage this process.”

One critic… The New York Times bestselling author Molly Knight tweeting:

It was Knight’s tweet that prompted Clinton’s shade toward Ivanka. 37-year-old Chelsea Clinton explained she too had visited Russia in 2006 alongside husband Marc Mezvinsky — explicitly noting that they visited the “public parts of the Kremlin” tweeting:

Of course… Twitter went NUTS!!! Some trolls applauding Clinton’s well-crafted burn.:

At the second 2016 presidential debate, both the presidential candidate’s daughters met face-to-face, and even shared an affectionate exchange. Months earlier, Ivanka told PEOPLE:

“We’re both incredibly supportive of our parents, as we should be. But we also continue to have great respect for one another.”

In her interview with 20/20 in January, Ivanka called Clinton a “very good friend” adding:

“She’s been a friend of mine long before the campaign, of course will be a friend of mine after. I haven’t spoken about the specific challenges about this next chapter with her just yet but I intend to.”
