On Monday, President-Elect Donald Trump and his daughter Ivanka met with environmental activist Al Gore to discuss climate change issues. The eldest Trump daughter had a sit-down lunch with Gore at Trump Tower in Manhattan, before eventually discussing talks with Trump himself.
“I had a lengthy and very productive session with the president-elect,” Gore informed reporters in the Trump Tower lobby after his meetings. “It was a sincere search for areas of common ground. I had a meeting beforehand with Ivanka Trump. The bulk of the time was with the president-elect, Donald Trump. I found it an extremely interesting conversation, and to be continued, and I’m just going to leave it at that.”
The meeting was unprecedented, nor known about beforehand. Trump spokesman Jason Miller did not provide any specfici details about the plan. Apparently though according to new reports, Ivanka Trump has an interest in serving in a leadership role regarding climate change and environmnetal issues within her father’s administration.
