In an interview that aired on NBC this morning, First Daughter Ivanka Trump said allowing Syrian refugees into the United States “has to be part of the discussion,” adding that it might not even be enough.

“I think there is a global humanitarian crisis that’s happening, and we have to come together, and we have to solve it,” she said to NBC reporter Hallie Jackson.

“Does that include opening the border to Syrian refugees in the U.S.?” inquired Jackson.

“That has to be part of the discussion, but that’s not going to be enough in and of itself,” came the reply.

“I’m incredibly hopeful that legislation is put together,” Ivanka continued.

See the full clip below.

As Politico’s Louis Nelson points out, this is a direct aversion from President Donald Trump’s conservative stance on Syrian refugees.

Following Ivanka Trump’s statement to NBC, many conservatives are criticizing her for this.

Popular conservative Twitter user Paul Joseph Watson called Ivanka “a globalist or at best incredibly misinformed & naive.”

Fueling these concerns are claims that Ivanka Trump is the “First Whisperer.”

“Is she going to bring her father on a moderate course, as some hope?” speculates one German newspaper. “Or will she be a loyal accomplice?”

    Empowering Christian Syrians should be a priority.

    • Susan M Khaury

      Yes! Obama and the Democrats have discriminated against Christians by allowing in Muslims preferentially. We should stop all Muslim immigration until we have taken in a number of Christian refugees from the Middle East equal to the number of Muslims we have brought in. Wouldn’t that be fair?

      • Luca Barbato

        Partially, a good deal of those heroic people would like to keep having their place in the middle east.

        • Maya Pinion

          Most of them would prefer to stay in their own homeland–safely–than be taken to a strange land with strange culture as refugees.

          • Luca Barbato

            The culture is not strange, beside fewer people would actively try to kill them so far (even if some deranged orgs are trying their best to import the killers first).

  • OnlyInterestedInTheTruth

    Completely turned off on Ivanka. Her ideology is contradictory to the promises her father campaigned on. Unfortunately, Ivanka is doing nothing to make a positive impact.

  • Susan M Khaury

    I know that Ivanka is the beloved daughter of President Trump, and I am a big Trump supporter, but we did not elect Ivanka and her beliefs. As well intentioned as she may be, she is a great danger to our country. She has the same opinions as the party we just OVERWHELMINGLY voted OUT of office. Let’s pray that her voice would no longer prevail in the White House, and that her father would remember the promises he made to the people who elected him.

  • Nensul

    shes a democrat and a globalist, that’s why she isn’t the President

  • Disproportional

    Now I am worried about Trump being elected. This here is seriously worrisome considering the reason hew as voted in.

  • Oil Can

    Put them in Trump tower, next to her unit.

    Since the other nations of the world are taking in Muslim refugees, it’s time for the US to show them REAL compassion and take in the refugees from other faiths that, apparently, nobody else wants. Christians, Jews, Buddhist etc. There may not be as many of them but they are being brutalized and somebody needs to help. Let the other nations take in the Muslims while we take in the others. I think we should ban Muslims from immigrating to this country for 5 years. That gives us time to really look at the impact the refugees are having on the European nations.

  • Reina Rose

    Kind of sounds like they are playing good cop, bad cop here. I can’t imagine that Ivanka is that far to the left. She also did not say “let them in,” she merely acknowledged that there is a humanitarian crisis and taking in refugees is ONE option that nations do discuss.

  • kamenetz

    Ivanka, stay the f out of politics and do us all a favor and go back to running Daddy’s businesses!

  • LindaRivera

    Ivanka Trump represents Daddy! Trump supports Immigration Jihad! The millions of Muslims pouring into Europe are almost all Muslim males of military fighting age! End the HATE for European Christian women and children!
    Muslims have waged RAPE Jihad on a WAR time scale for decades in Britain and Europe on our women and children! The violent, massive number of rapes greatly increased after the EVIL EU invited the world’s Muslims into Europe!

    Huge, Filthy Rich Saudi Arabia doesn’t take a single migrant! Western leaders don’t want them to! Western God-hater leaders HATE Jews and Christians and want Judaism and Christianity Destroyed!

    PROTECT our Women and Children! End Immigration Jihad! Deport the Armies of Cruel Warlord Mohammad! SAVE FRANCE! Vote for courageous heroine Marine Le
    Pen! Thank God! Wonderful Marine cares about our women and children and wants to protect them!

  • Tyler

    Well all she said was it has to be “part of the discussion”. She didn’t say do it. And also liberals who have typically been the one attacking her don’t realize that she is actually more of a liberal than a conservative. Technically she’s an independent that leans left. Her father, Donald is also an independent, but leans towards the right.

  • SallyForth

    Trump’s policy is to set-up a safe zone in Syria.

    You’ve also got to question why more wealthy Middle Eastern nations like Saudia Arabia are not coming under pressure to take more refugees if that is required.

    Why only Western Liberal Democracies?

    Because there are people like George Soros who fund a lot of these initiatives and the politicians who destabilise these nations in the first place, who want to undermine Western Liberal Democracies.

  • Diana Schreiber Murdoch

    She is pretty smart I’d say. She is navigating political shark waters, with stealth. She is NOT globalist. This is the velvet touch Dad does not have. Just watch. You”ll see how brilliant this is.

  • Jane

    God no! Help Christians over there if anyone…at least they could assimilate into our country’s core values rather than try to change them. Thousands of Muslims met at the California Capitol to push several new bills that will help them have protected status. Just like in Canada where its against the law to speak against Islam. The law should be equal for everyone..no protected status. Equal under the Constitution. But CAIR and Muslims always start by subverting a Western countries laws in their favor. We do not need more Ivanka. Fix Syria and put people there.

  • HiOnLiberalTears

    NO MUSLIMS, period!

  • Russian hacker

    Getting really sick of Ivanka’s globalist agenda undermining and now sabotaging what the voters elected her father to do. Her and Jared have way too much influence in this administration and she needs to stick to issues she’s informed about and quit all this emotional virtue signalling that she does to ingratiate herself with global elites.

  • Proofteller

    She is espousing the Zionist narrative, anyone surprised?

  • Walter Steven Pfaffenbach

    In my opinion, the daughter and son-in-law of President Trump should not be involved in the meetings, discussions or decisions on anything pertaining to the United States. She should concentrate on her business and he can do whatever it is he does, but stay out of any and all meetings in discussions of the United States policy. I believe that both of them are beginning a leaning towards giving President Trump thoughts and idea’s that should not be given as there are qualified and experienced personnel to give intelligent advice and they should not be involved in any position, meeting, discussions or decisions in this government. And, as I see it, President Trump is beginning to change positions on some policies. If Ivanka and Jared want to be in government meetings, discussions and decisions, they should campaign for office and get elected. Quite frankly, I’m getting disappointed in President Trump allowing his daughter and son-in-law to be ‘consultants to the President and staff’. It seems to me that those two have a lot of ‘sway’ to convince dear daddy and the great daddy-in-law Don’s opinion on matters at hand. Ivanka and Jared, stay out and take care of your own business. The country doesn’t need your input. There are great Military leaders and experienced government officials that are more qualified than both of you.

  • Paul Stuart

    She won’t make very many friends with comments like that.

  • Brian Montgomery

    Please tell me this is fake news !! There is absolutely no way in hell we should allow these allegded refugees in this country ! All anyone has to do is look at what is happening in Europe or even Austrailia ! This will be the total annihilation of our country !
