OPINION: Why Can’t Ivanka Trump And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Get Along?

As a member of the seemingly-dwindling group of moderates in this country, I was profoundly dismayed by the public spat between Ivanka Trump and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

While partisans from either side watched the battle between these two accomplished women unfold (and cheered for their team’s player), I couldn’t help but wish that they would just sit down and have a conversation. I suspect that they would have more common goals and beliefs than it would appear at first glance.

Ivanka Trump has long been a fierce advocate for working women — even championing a $50 million initiative aimed at helping women find jobs, start their own businesses, and generally empower them in the workforce. It is a noble cause that is worthy of praise and recognition.
