Ivanka Trump and Chelsea Clinton claim that they actually have a positive long-standing relationship – unlike that of their parents’, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton – political rivals who are currently throwing the harshest words yet at one another.

Ivanka Trump recently publicly acknowledged her friendship with Chelsea Clinton, quoting her on Twitter.
Chelsea Clinton recently related to Vogue how much she admires and respects Ivanka, even going so far as to compare the beautiful blonde’s ability to brighten a room to that of the same quality she sees in her own father, Bill Clinton.
“She’s always aware of everyone around her and ensuring that everyone is enjoying the moment. It’s an awareness that in some ways reminds me of my dad, and his ability to increase the joy of the room. There’s nothing skin-deep about Ivanka. And I think that’s a real tribute to her because certainly anyone as gorgeous as she is could have probably gone quite far being skin-deep,” Clinton said of her friend.
Clinton and Trump are often seen together in small groups of friends joined by their husbands. Earlier this year the two pals were seen together at Narcissa, an East Village eatery in Manhattan.
Prior to their current political turmoil, however, Donald Trump was a staunch supporter of Bill and Hillary.
The Times says Trump commented on Twitter a few years ago that he thought so highly of Chelsea because she had “the best of both parents,” thoughts that he would most certainly not intimate now.
Great to see Sec. Clinton leaving the hospital yesterday with @ChelseaClinton and Pres. Clinton. Glad she is recuperating.
