Ivanka’s Secret Planned Parenthood Meeting

First daughter Ivanka Trump supposedly held a meeting with Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards in January to find some common ground between President Trump’s policies and the women’s health organization.  Ivanka asked for a sit-down with Richards, a vocal advocate of Hillary Clinton during the 2016 campaign and herself a daughter of a politician – the former Texas Gov. Ann Richards.


“The purpose of the meeting from Cecile’s point of view was to make sure the Ivanka fully understood what Planned Parenthood does, how it is funded and why it would be a terrible idea for Planned Parenthood to be removed from being able to see Medicaid patients,” said Laguens, executive Vice President of Planned Parenthood Federation of American.


“The main thing that Cecile Richards was going to explaining that the money doesn’t actually go to abortions – we get reimbursed the same way a hospital does.  We were clearing up misinformation about how this works.”  Laguen called this rendezvous “an explainer meeting”, noting Trump had an interest in learning “more about the facts of Planned Parenthood.”  Since that meeting, however, the relationship has reportedly gone cold and Richards has publicly criticized Trump for her “deafening” silence on her father’s policy choices.


“Anyone who works in this White House is responsible for addressing why women are in the crosshairs of basically every single policy we’ve seen in this administration,” Richards recently said in New York City. 


Last week, Trump officially became a federal employee with security clearance in her father’s administration.
