Ivanka Trump slammed online after saying she doesn't know what 'complicit' means


On Tuesday, CBS This Morning tweeted a preview of an interview with Ivanka Trump. In the clip, the president's daughter responds to accusations that she's "complicit":

"If being complicit is wanting to be a force for good and to make a positive impact, then I'm complicit.

Trump continued, "So I hope to make a positive impact. I don't know what it means to be complicit, but you know, I hope time will prove that I have done a good job and much more importantly that my father's administration is the success that I know it will be."
