InfoWars host Alex Jones, an avid supporter of President Trump during the campaign and his administration, said in a video posted to his Facebook on Thursday that Ivanka Trump’s policies are beginning to sound a lot like those of Hillary Clinton.
“We did not elect Ivanka Trump to be the 45th President of the United States,” Jones says dressed in a white-collared shirt while driving a car. “I think she’s talented, she’s beautiful, I think the dresses she wears, the clothing line are cool. I have nothing against her personally. Or Jared Kushner, but we didn’t elect him to be president either. He’s a Democrat, his dad went to prison for fraud, his 666 building’s going sideways.”
The remarks come as Jones is in the midst of a contentious child custody battle and just a few days after the yogurt giant Chobani sued him claiming that he had fabricated stories about the company and its CEO Hamdi Ulukuya.
Jones is butting heads with Ivanka Trump’s recent interest in accepting Syrian refugees into the United States—a divergence from the platform that Trump ran on as a candidate.
“That has to be part of the discussion,” Ivanka Trump said regarding the admission of refugees during an interview with MSNBC. “But that’s not going to be enough in and of itself.”
Jones also took issue with Ivanka Trump’s appearance in Germany alongside Chancellor Angela Merkel, who has diverged with President Trump on the policy of admission of foreign refugees.
“She’s over there in Germany with Merkel who opened the borders up for all the Islamisists [sic],” Jones continues in the video. “She says for women we should let refugees in. And that her dad’s wrong and she wants him to change his mind. What?”
InfoWars has long been a cheerleader of Trump’s nationalist agenda. Jones’ radio show and livestream have recently featured appearances by longtime Trump friend Roger Stone to blast the influence of Jared Kushner in the White House. The two men claim they are criticizing with gentle nudges so Trump keeps his promises to his base—and to not allow the president to be kowtow to the establishment.
The rest of the video is slightly more hopeful. Jones contends President Trump is helping to spread the brand of nationalism worldwide and that his listeners and youthful nationalists are helping to defeat globalism.
“I’m Alex Jones, this is in the Info War,” Jones says, still driving.
