‘Dear Ivanka’ Instagram Account Asks Ivanka Trump to Stop Supporting Her Dad’s Rhetoric
A new Instagram account called “Dear Ivanka,” is attempting to appeal to President-Elect Donald Trump‘s daughter Ivanka Trump as “the voice of reason,” and hopes that she will denounce some of her father’s rhetoric and “rebel” against some of his views. The account has gained a following of more than 2,000 people (and counting) since November 21.
It is run by the Halt Action Group, and they post photos that express their concerns of a Trump presidency. For example, the caption of one photo reads, “Dear Ivanka, I’m gay and I want to be able to marry.”
In the comments section of one of their photos, one person asked them to explain what they’re doing. The response reads, “Ivanka is part of the official transition team. She is the ‘kind,’ ‘rational’ and ‘feminist’ spokesperson for her father’s campaign, and now, administration. These ‘Dear Ivanka’ posts are an open letter to her.”
Tonight, the group plans to hold a candlelight vigil tonight at 6:00pm outside The Puck Building in New York City, where she lives (or lived) in the penthouse apartment with her husband Jared Kushner and children. The post for the event says, “The new Trump administration says wait-and-see, but we’ve seen enough to to know that we are scared of what’s coming on January 20th. Come with postcards, letters, signs, slogans, flowers, LED candles, or just yourself, and let your voice be heard!”
