Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway has come to the defense of Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner after their absence from Trump’s Paris climate agreement announcement was noticed and criticized.
“Yesterday was a Jewish holiday, as I understand — so I don’t want to read anything into how anyone is spending their time or where they are or not, however, that’s my whole point,” Ms. Conway said on Fox News.
The criticism of their absence stems largely from the great level of responsibility Trump has placed on both of them but Conway was more interested in the details of Trump’s withdrawal of the agreement.
“This is a president who is unafraid to listen to many ideas across the spectrum, and this was a great example of that. In the end, he made the decision based on the facts and figures that he repeated yesterday,” she said. “This was a very poorly negotiated, bad deal, from the beginning. I would point out to you that when it was first negotiated, many of the environmentalists went crazy. They said that this will have a statistically insignificant impact in a positive way on carbon emissions, and it let China and India off without having to compel their behavior in such a dramatic way.”
At the very least, Conway reflects a strict adherence to the promises Trump made on the campaign trail of prioritizing the American economy over all else.
