It might not be surprising that Chelsea, the daughter of former president Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton, former first lady, secretary of state and Democratic presidential nominee, is opposed to the current President, but the topic hit particularly close to home. The topic that caused Chelsea to directly call out the President was over her former friend, Ivanka Trump. Chelsea and Ivanka used to be friends and stayed so even during the bitter election campaign, and have both experienced what it is like being the daughter of the President.
Unfortunately for the two women, they have drifted apart and no longer see each other.
In 2017, Chelsea even indirectly criticised her former friend during an exchange of tweets with the President.
Ivanka, who is a special adviser to the President for womens’ issues, raised eyebrows when she stood in for her father at the G20 meeting in Hamburg.
Critics accused the Trumps of blurring the lines between family and official business, arguing that Ivanka is unelected and does not have the appropriate foreign policy credentials to fulfill such a role.

Mr Trump launched an impassioned defence of his daughter, tweeting that it was “very standard" practice and pointing out that German Chancellor Angela Merkel “agrees” with him.
Then, he rounded on the Clintons, writing: “If Chelsea Clinton were asked to hold the seat for her mother, as her mother gave the country away, the Fake News would say Chelsea for Pres!”
That’s when Chelsea, who has been using her social media presence to oppose the administration’s policies, launched her quick rebuttal.
She claimed that, had her mother been elected, she would never have brought Chelsea into the administration or asked her to fill in for her at the G20.
