The White House is backing an ad campaign intended to encourage out-of-work Americans to just “find something new” — and it’s got Ivanka Trump’s fingerprints all over it.
The campaign came out of the American Workforce Policy Advisory Board, which was created by President Donald Trump in 2018 and co-chaired by his eldest daughter along with Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross.
“There has never been a more critical time for Americans of all ages and backgrounds to be aware of the multiple pathways to career success and gain the vocational training and skills they need to fill jobs in a changing economy,” Ivanka Trump said in announcing the campaign.
The campaign was met with immediate and widespread criticism.

A commercial telling the unemployed to "find something new" is so Ivanka. Next up, their "if you want to have nice things, why not become millionaires like us" campaign. https://t.co/VUrvtXYfqZ

You’re excited about a new ad campaign as the virus rages all over the country?? Americans are overwhelmingly fed up with you, your platitudes, your ignorance & your family. The “something new we need isn't another ad campaign, it’s new occupants in the White House. pic.twitter.com/V3nRjDAWW0

What will you be doing in 2021? I hope you're getting a resume together because your name is now worthless as a branding tool. When daddy is indicted for tax fraud he's going to take you down with him. I can't wait.#Complicit pic.twitter.com/zmmPiV3ctN

Find something new? Seriously?
40 million unemployed Americans can’t just play bring your daughter to work day every day.

Ivanka needs to find something new as she's unqualified for this position. No more nepotism and cronyism as it led to failure in leadership causing a recession and multiple deaths. Tone deaf.#ByeIvanka

Why? I thought the economy was booming and there were enough jobs for everyone to have at least 2 or 3 to maintain living at poverty level.

Ivanka: Oh you're out of work? Why can't you just, like, get a new job in a completely different field? I went from handbag designer to working in the white house – it was so easy! #FindSomethingNew

I'm stunned at how clueless you are.
"I know you're hurting. Grandma and Grandpa are dead from the virus. You're not working and your kids are going to be forced to go back to virus infested schools. But don't worry we have a plan:#FindSomethingNew pic.twitter.com/7V4AHpLBU5
