In the Before Before Times – which is how I now refer to the run-up to the 2016 presidential election – former first daughter Chelsea Clinton and current Presidential Advisor Ivanka Trump were friends.
While People reports that their friendship had been “largely private, “the two were spotted at Charmof Women of the year award in 2014 and 2015 Vogue Ivanka profile, Chelsea reportedly said, “There is nothing deep about Ivanka.”
That friendship then seemed to die out after their parents, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, embarked on a controversial campaign against each other, even though the two women made comments suggesting they wanted their friendship continues after the race. In March 2018, Chelsea told Stephen Colbert that she had not spoken to Ivanka “for a long time”.
Then this week, in the Thursday night episode of Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, Cohen asked Chelsea what had happened to their relationship.
“I haven’t spoken to him since 2016, and Andy, I have no interest in being friends with someone who is not only an accomplice but who actively participates in this administration’s daily collision of cruelty and incompetence,” Chelsea said.

Cohen then asked, “Was there a time during this campaign where you wanted to text him and say, ‘Hey, we’re friends. It’s crazy, what your father says about my mother “?
“We were in contact at the start of the campaign. But it’s really very difficult when there is someone actively embracing their candidate, whether it’s their father or not, who is doing racism and sexism and anti-Semitism and Islamophobia and homophobia. and transphobia and conspiracy theories and lies and is so fundamentally corrupt. At one point I don’t think they are the same by any standard, but I think she is more than an accomplice than anyone else. worked for him for so long by definition. And I don’t want to be friends with someone like that. “
As Chelsea said, Ivanka continued to work alongside her father throughout his presidency and celebrated him at the Republican National Convention this summer. “Dad, people attack you because you’re unconventional,” she said. “But I love you for being real, and I respect you for being effective.”
