On June 1, Ivanka Trump celebrated the start of Pride Month by expressing her support for the LGBTQ community on her Twitter account. "Logging back on after Shavuot, wishing everyone a joyful #Pride2017. This month we celebrate and honor the #LGBTQ community," Trump tweeted.
Shortly after, Trump also shared how "proud" she is to support her LGBTQ friends who have "made immense contributions to our society and economy."
I am proud to support my LGBTQ friends and the LGBTQ Americans who have made immense contributions to our society and economy.— Ivanka Trump (@IvankaTrump) June 2, 2017
The internet quickly called out the irony of President Donald Trump's eldest daughter declaring herself a supporter of the community when her father's administration doesn't seem to be. Read on to see some poignant reactions to Trump's tweets ahead.
Contributions to economy shouldn't even be mentioned when talking about decency and wellbeing of entire group of people. https://t.co/SBlOXGAF0L

Really? It sounds a little hollow considering the way the current administration are heading when regarding LGBTQ rights. https://t.co/9Zd2a3opIe

Unless we're POC. Or need healthcare. Or want to stay in our jobs or use a public bathroom. Or want a world not wrecked by climate change. https://t.co/aPRrL67jHE
