Leo DiCaprio Gave Ivanka Trump A Copy Of His Climate Change DVD
Here’s hoping Ivanka takes climate change more seriously than her dad.
As America is slowly coming to terms with the fact Donald Trump will be the next POTUS, Leonardo DiCaprio is taking matters into his own hands, gifting Ivanka Trump a copy of his climate change documentary, Before The Flood.
According to Trump’s assistants, DiCaprio met with the President elect’s daughter privately to discuss climate change before the actor and environmentalist handed Trump the DVD.
It’s a smart move by DiCaprio, considering Ivanka Trump might become the most influential First Daughter in history. Since the world-shattering election results dropped on November 8, many politicians and businesswomen, such as chief operating officer of Facebook, Sheryl Sandberg, have reached out to Ivanka Trump, hoping to create a dialogue about topics such as women’s issues.
It seems many see the 35 year-old as the possible voice of reason in the highly controversial Trump administration, and hope she will be more involved in her dad’s politics than other First Daughters before her.
Trump is widely known for his outspoken climate-change denial, referring to it as “a hoax”, vowing to back out of the Paris climate treaty – a universal UN agreement on climate. He met with former vice President and environmentalist Al Gore yesterday and included his daughter in the meeting.
“I had a lengthy and very productive session with the President elect. It was a sincere search for areas of common ground,” Gore told press after the conference, outside Trump Tower.
“I had a meeting beforehand with Ivanka Trump. The bulk of the time was with the President elect, Donald Trump. I found it an extremely interesting conversation, and to be continued, and I’m just going to leave it at that.”
While it’s not clear how exactly Ivanka Trump’s views on climate change differ from her father’s, it seems she is determined to make it one of her signature issues.
