Their famous families may have opposing views on politics, but Chelsea Clinton and Ivanka Trump do see eye-to-eye on some issues. The current and former first daughters reportedly even consider themselves friends, and Ivanka insisted that she was still close to Chelsea during her father Donald Trump's 2016 presidential run against Chelsea's mother Hillary Clinton. So, it makes sense that both Chelsea and Ivanka are on the same page when it comes to some issues — including their feelings on how the media should treat Malia Obama.
When a now-deleted Instagram video circulated that appeared to show the 19-year-old daughter of former President Barack Obama smoking, Chelsea rushed to her defense on Twitter. Chelsea pointed out that Malia is now a "private citizen," and should be treated as such.
Less than an hour before Chelsea's November 24 tweet, Ivanka expressed a similar sentiment on Twitter. The current first daughter even suggested that the young adult's life should be "off limits" as a topic for media discussion.
In the past, Chelsea has also spoken out against some of the media's treatment of President Trump's 11-year-old son Barron Trump.
Chelsea and Ivanka certainly understand what it's like to have parents in the White House and to be under intense and unfair scrutiny by the media. So, it's inspiring to see that both women are willing to put politics aside when it comes to defending the privacy of young people's lives.
