Ivanka Trump’s father is no stranger to international meetings and is no strangers to making international headlines.
But his daughter, Ivanka Trump, has been more than willing to step into the spotlight, using her father as a cautionary tale for anyone looking to take on the world’s biggest problems.
Ivanka Trump said she doesn�t want to be a “climate change hero” during her father�s meeting with the UN General Assembly this week, according to The Associated Press.
The United Nations, the United States and other nations are planning a climate change summit in the French Riviera in September.
Trump was not among the leaders invited to the event.
His wife, Melania Trump, is also not scheduled to be at the event, according the AP.
Ivankas father, who was born in Slovenia, started working on environmental issues while still in high school.
His father was the chairman of the board of the World Wildlife Fund, a United Nations agency that fights wildlife trafficking and poaching, when he was president of Slovenia.
The first lady has also been active in the environmental community, making headlines recently when she announced a $100 million initiative to fight global warming.
The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
