Skip to comments.Eric Trump: Ivanka Convinced President Trump to Strike Syria
Posted on 04/11/2017 2:19:04 PM PDT by ColdOne
President Donald Trump's 33-year-old son Eric told Britain's The Daily Telegraph that his sister Ivanka, rather than her husband Jared Kushner, convinced the U.S. head of state to launch 59 Tomahawk missiles in retaliation for a sarin gas attack last week.
"Ivanka is a mother of three kids and she has influence. I'm sure she said 'listen, this is horrible stuff.' My father will act in times like that," Eric Trump told The Telegraph in an interview at the Trump Turnberry golf resort in Ayrshire, Scotland.
"He also confirmed that President Trump's decision to bomb a Syrian airbase ... was influenced by the reaction of his sister Ivanka, who said she was 'heartbroken and outraged' by the atrocity," the British paper reported.

She is the mother of 3 kids so bombs away.
I hope she doesn’t ask him to give 3,504 weeks of maternity leave because single pregnant mothers break her heart :)
What’s going to happen when a world event coincides with her being in PMS
I knew that woman was too beautiful not to be dangerous.
Ivanka, go back to NYC, leave military business to your dad.
Just speculating, but something called his Cabinet and The Joint Chiefs of Staff is why he acted.
Ivanka is beautiful, but her boobs are paulty when compared the ones on Free Republic.
Now we’ll be entertained by folks who think our intelligence agencies, the Joint Chief, and other generals just sat there while Trump said, “Well...., Ivanka wants this.”
OMG folks... seriously?
The Navy will launch 59 frying pans instead of cruise missiles?
Agreed....and.....take your husband with you.
When will the unelected members of the Trump family learn that “silence is golden.” That’s why Melnia is so respected and admired. She keeps her mouth shut.
THis is pretty pathetic imo
OMG folks... seriously?
I know right? Who believes this crap.
Not the way such decisions should be made. The Kushners need to leave the WH and return to their businesses.
Isn’t that Mattis’ job?
Eric, just shut up. White House staffers do not disclose internal deliberations. You people need to climb the learning curve in a hurry.
Are these kids aware how this makes their daddy look?
Amy Carter 2.0 (young people,look it up)
People that believe this stuff... crack me up.
Bombing Syria was a brilliant move.
1) Trump is not Putin’s bitch.
2) Putin is de-fanged.
3) Norks are on notice.
4) China is helping.
5) Iran is sh*tting their robes.
6) Strategic downside risk is limited.
7) Political bump in U.S.
I don’t like the fact that it temporarily puts us on the side of the Sunni Axis. But next, Trump can bomb some more Sunni idiots who need it, and that takes care of that issue.
So what’s the downside again?
Whether or not the sarin existed or whose it was remains a mystery to me. But the bombing as a Trumpian Statement is a winner most any way I can look at it.
