The day after Nancy Pelosi announced a formal impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump, Senior White House advisor Ivanka Trump decided to show her support -- and apparently her thanks -- for her father with a bizarrely vague tweet,
Posting a photo of her father, Ivanka captioned it simply:
"Thank you, Mr. President!"
Thank you, Mr. President! https://t.co/UFU1ObxLfN— Ivanka Trump (@Ivanka Trump) 1569414019.0
The photo was from the inauguration in January of 2017.
The photo plus the caption is almost like something a person would post at the end of a President's term in office. Does she know something we don't know?
