CNN’s Jake Tapper hammered President Donald Trump’s former deputy communications director Bryan Lanza for defending Trump’s rants about fake news.
In an interview with Axios, White House Adviser Ivanka Trump, confessed she disagreed with her father’s zero-tolerance immigration policy.
“That was a low point for me,” she said. “I feel very strongly about that. I am very vehemently against family separation and the separation of parents and children.”
Lanza said that CNN was only focusing on Ivanka Trump’s differing views instead of the entire interview.
“She is doing something. It is different. CNN only wants to focus on one sentence of an hour-long event. That is fake news,” Lanza said.
Tapper would not let him off the hook.
“That’s a major policy decision. Something you don’t like does not become fake news,” Tapper said.
Neera Tanden, president and CEO of a liberal-aligned Center for American Progress, challenged Ivanka Trump to do more than just “talk about” the issues.
“She has privileges. She says this is a low point. I would just like to say to Ivanka Trump, the thing for her to do if she opposes family separation, there are children today, tonight who will still go to sleep not knowing where their parents are because of Donald Trump’s policies,” she said.
Tanden continued: “My suggestion to Ivanka Trump is maybe she should do something about that. We are talking months where children have been separated from their parents and White House advisers should actually do something and not just talk about it.”
