Chelsea Clinton decided she would launch an attack on Ivanka Trump, but it back fired…big time! on Tuesday, Chelsea issued a challenge to Ivanka to ask Donald Trump how he plans to fight for equal pay for women.
However, Chelsea got a surprise she wasn’t expecting when the Washington Free Beacon provided from details that leaves a massive amount of egg on her face.
Here is what has been reported…
From Free Beacon:
Clinton said during a Facebook Live interview with Glamour magazine Tuesday that unlike Donald Trump, her mother, Hillary Clinton, has repeatedly laid out a platform for voters outlining how she would accomplish policy goals in the White House.
“Whether that’s on gun control or protecting a woman’s right to choose or any of the things we’ve talked about. She also tells you how she’s going to pay for it,” Chelsea Clinton said.
The Democratic nominee’s daughter condemned Donald Trump for not highlighting equal pay or accessibility to quality child care for all on his website.
While Hillary Clinton has vowed on the campaign trail that she will pour energy into closing the gender wage gap should she win the White House in November, the former first lady stumbled over the issue during her time in the U.S. Senate.
Women who worked for Clinton when she served in Congress were paid 72 cents for each dollar paid to men, according to a Washington Free Beacon analysis of salary data from her Senate years.
From 2002 to 2008, the median income for a female staff member working in her office was about $15,708 less than the median salary for a man, the report found.
Still, Clinton has regularly charged that Donald Trump is untrustworthy on women’s issues.
Ivanka Trump vowed during the Republican National Convention last week that her dad would advocate for issues that would advance women in the workplace, telling the crowd that he would “fight for equal pay for equal work.”
Chelsea Clinton has yet to respond to these facts, but the evidence is clear. Hillary Clinton is a hypocrite against the very issues that she says she will fight for. If equal pay for women is important, why was there a drastic wage gap between men and women during her time in Congress?
