Jane Goodall offers warning to Ivanka Trump after being quoted in 'Women Who Work'

World-renowned primatologist and anthropologist Jane Goodall spoke out on Tuesday after discovering Ivanka Trump had quoted her in a new book.

Ivanka Trump's book, "Women Who Work: Rewriting the Rules for Success," hit stores on Tuesday and includes a bit of the UN messenger of peace's own rhetoric which reads: "What you do makes a difference and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make."

Goodall tells CNNMoney that she was not aware the president's eldest daughter would be quoting her in the new book, and offered a warning to the presidential adviser and confidant.

"I sincerely hope she will take the full import of my words to heart," Goodall told CNNMonney. "She is in a position to do much good or terrible harm."

Goodall also expressed concern on President Trump's executive orders relative to national monuments and federally protected land that could have major environmental implications.

"Legislation that was passed by previous governments to protect wildlife such as the Endangered Species Act, create national monuments and other clean air and water legislation have all been jeopardized by this administration," Goodall continued. "I hope that Ms. Trump will stand with us to value and cherish our natural world and protect this planet for future generations."
