Ivanka Trump's most talked about controversies of 2017

While President Trump normally gets the internet buzzing with eyebrow-raising comments and quick-response tweets, first daughter, Ivanka Trump, has also had her fair share of controversies in 2017.

She garnered criticism earlier this year for staying silent over her father's "anti-women" actions and for failing to successfully advocate for policies that may bring change to issues such as closing the gender wage gap and women's health. One of those critics was former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

When asked if Ivanka Trump should be held responsible for her father's actions, the former secretary of state claimed that everyone "associated" with President Trump should be held accountable and if they weren't on-board with his views and policies, they should be "speaking out."

Trump appeared to respond to all of these allegations by suggesting that it is not her White House role to steer her father in a specific political direction and told the Financial Times that people have "created unrealistic expectations" of her and her job in Washington. 

And although Ivanka Trump remained mostly silent on these issues, she did create some buzz surrounding Alabama Senate nominee, Roy Moore. 

In an interview with the Associated Press, the first daughter said there was "a special place in hell for people who prey on children" after allegations surfaced that Moore sexually abused multiple teenage girls.

Her comments drew criticism from far-right media outlet Breitbart, with its editor-in-chief claiming she should stay quiet, given the accusations against her own father.

How much more proof do you need that she isn't an innocent bystander? This embarrasses us. When we aren't in tears, we try to figure out how to respond to what is so violent about this as a depiction of a woman who claims to speak for female empowerment. #ivankaforpresident
