Ivanka Trump, President Trump's daughter and senior White House adviser, touted the U.S. economy and credited her father's policies for keeping it strong in an interview with Fox News host Steve Hilton that will air next Sunday. And she also explained why she thinks Americans reject the Green New Deal proposed by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.). Hilton asked Trump specifically about the proposal's job guarantee.

"You've got people who will see that offer from the Democrats, from the progressive Democrats, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: 'Here's the Green New Deal, here's the guarantee of a job,' and think, 'Yeah, that's what I want, it's that simple,'" Hilton said. "What do you say to those people?"
