Ivanka Trump, Cory Booker had 'private conversation' days after inauguration


New Jersey Senator Cory Booker revealed on Sunday that he met privately with first daughter Ivanka Trump days after her father's inauguration.

"I had a private conversation with her once at the Alfalfa dinner," the senator said on CNN's "State of the Union." "I saw her and had a very brief conversation." The nature of the pair's conversation wasn't revealed during the CNN interview.

Booker not only attended Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump's wedding in 2009 -- the Trump daughter also held a fundraiser for the senator in 2013.

Booker said he sees a lack of communication as a major issue ailing the United States at the moment.

"I think there's a problem in this country right now that we are having problems talking to each other," said Booker.

"There millions and millions of good Democrats, millions and millions of good Republicans who are Americans — 99 percent of us are good people... I don't care what party you are, recognize this: We are at a time of increased fear in our country."

"And I don't care who you are, if you consider yourself a leader, you have an obligation to stand up and do something about it and lead with love and not appealing to people's darker angels or exploiting that fear."
