The View co-hosts slammed Ivanka Trump for posing with a Goya Foods can that she shared on social media.
What the Hosts Had to Say
The co-hosts of the ABC talk show spoke candidly about her unethical behavior. “Isn’t this, like, a violation, an ethics violation, Sunny?” Whoopi Goldberg asked. “Yes. It’s a federal ethics violation, just clear-cut, clear and simple. Right?” Sunny Hostin replied.
“It’s just shocking that she, as the president’s adviser, a position she really shouldn’t hold because she is the president’s daughter and she is unqualified to hold that position, that she doesn’t know better,” Hostin continued. She added, “She’s a rule violator, ethical rule violator.”
“The picture of Ivanka Trump holding it is just creepy, and I think it was a huge misfire on her part because, first of all, who cooks Mexican food or Hispanic food or opens up beans in an all-white outfit?” Meghan McCain questioned. “And second of all, why does it look like the movie Get Out?”
What Happened With Goya?
Earlier this month, Goya CEO Robert Unanue attended one of the president’s events and praised him.
“We’re all truly blessed at the same time to have a leader like President Trump who is a builder, and that’s what my grandfather did,” he told the crowd. He also announced a donation of 1 millionGoya Foods CEO Robert Unanue attended the event and used the occasion to announce a donation of 1 million cans of chickpeas and 1 million pounds of other foods to local food banks.
What Ivanka Did
Ivanka posted a photo on social media of her posing with a can of Goya beans. “If it’s Goya, it has to be good,” she wrote along with the translation in Spanish. Goya is the country’s largest Hispanic-owned food brand.
Ivanka’s father, President Donald Trump, also shared a photo of himself with numerous Goya products on his desk in the oval office. He shared the post on his social media account to immediate criticism. People called Donald and Ivanka’s actions “unethical” while they both hold positions in The White House.
