Ivanka Trump Receives Special Recognition From the Israeli-American Council
First daughter and presidential advisor Ivanka Trump received the “Friend of Israel Award” from the Israeli-American Council, according to The Jerusalem Post.
The council cited Trump’s “strong positive connection to the State of Israel” as their reasoning behind bestowing the award on her going on to say that she, “believes in the importance of the friendship between the US and Israel, and works to strengthen the alliances between the people of the United States and the people of Israel.”
Trump is married to Jared Kushner, a Jewish-American businessman and fellow advisor to the president, both of whom adhere to Judaism, and have worked on causes that impact the nation of Israel.
President Trump himself has participated in events hosted by the IAC, including their annual conference in Florida last month.
“The Israeli-American Council was delighted to honor Ivanka Trump, senior adviser to the president, at our gala in Las Vegas [Tuesday] night,” IAC CEO Shoham Nicolet told The Jerusalem Post. “As a successful businesswoman and entrepreneur, Ivanka has been an inspiration for both women leadership and family values.
“We thank her for her commitment to strengthening the bond between Israel and the United States, and being a role model for so many over the years,” he said.
“It’s a tremendous honor to receive the ‘Friend of Israel Award’ by the Israeli-American Council,” Ivanka Trump told the Post in a written statement.
“President Trump and the entirety of his administration are resolute in defending the Jewish people, supporting the State of Israel and confronting the scourge of antisemitism everywhere it exists. As both his daughter and adviser, I can say with conviction that there is no greater friend to Israel than President Trump.”
