Default Ivanka Pushing Gun Control

Aside from her inside dealings, Ivanka has publicly pushed "red flag" laws and stricter background checks.

"Ivanka Trump spoke last Wednesday to Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), while he was vacationing in Hawaii, to get an update on the bipartisan background checks bill he proposed with Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Penn.)," Axios reports. "The measure, which was initially introduced in 2013 after the Sandy Hook shooting, would expand background checks to nearly all commercial firearm sales."

An aide for the West Virginia Democrat told the outlet that Ivanka "called Manchin and said she was trying to get a sense of what bills are out there. She had him explain how they drafted the bill, where it stands and what changes needed to be made in order for it to pass."

Ivanka "has trusted relationships on both sides of the aisle and she is working in concert with the White House policy and legislative teams," a White House official told Axios.

In the wake of the El Paso and Dayton shootings, Ivanka took to social media to voice her support for gun control measures, while stressing that she is a strong supporter of the Second Amendment, a common refrain of most gun control proponents.
