Ivanka Trump is celebrating the passing of the Great American Outdoors Act by visiting the Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado. The White House senior advisor took to social media to share pictures from the adventure.
“The pandemic has made us value, now more than ever, the national treasure that is our parks & respite they afford our families,” she captions the post. “Today @SecBernhardt & I visited Rocky Mountain Nat’l Park to celebrate the passage of the Great American Outdoors Act, a landmark win for all!”
Ivanka Trump shared four pictures from the visit. The first shows her presumably addressing a crowd of people while holding a microphone. In the second snap, the President’s daughter poses for the camera in front of a gorgeous body of water. She masks up while hiking one of the trails in the third photo. Lastly, Ivanka flashes a smile at the camera alongside Secretary David Bernhardt and two Rocky Mountain Park Rangers.
Twitter Reacts to Ivanka Trump’s Rocky Mountain National Park Post
After posting the photos, a number of Twitter users shared their thoughts on the park visit. United States Deputy Secretary of the Interior David Bernhardt responded to one of the commenters.
“For most of us who do not have the luxury of getting to fly in on a taxpayer funded private jet and kite home the same way, travel means hotels (not great during the time of COVID) and scoping out public bathrooms along the way (also not great),” the user wrote. “Thanks for salt in the wound.”
Secretary David Bernhardt responded by writing: “Actually, I flew to Colorado on Southwest and back to DC on United. Many people also have the option of driving to our great public lands.”
The tour took place the day after the House passed the Great American Outdoors act. The bill provides funding for a popular conservation fund in addition to addressing a maintenance backlog. The bill now goes to the President’s desk for signature.
