Since House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced on Sept. 24 that she plans to open an official impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump, it's been at the top of everyone's minds. President Trump quickly responded to Pelosi's announcement by tweeting "PRESIDENTIAL HARASSMENT," while the White House characterized the inquiry as Democrats' attempts to "weaponize politics." But it appears that White House senior staffer and presidential daughter Ivanka Trump is opting for a more subtle approach. On Wednesday, Sept. 25, Trump shared an image of her father, President Trump, raising his fist victoriously on her Instagram story with a caption that simply read "Thank you, Mr. President!"
It's unclear exactly what Trump is thanking the president for, but talk about interesting timing. Even though House Democrats have been discussing impeachment proceedings towards President Trump over recent months, Pelosi's Sept. 24 announcement marks the first official step to actually make some Democrats' dreams a reality. While an impeachment inquiry doesn't guarantee that the president will be impeached, it's still probably a stressful experience for President Trump. So, perhaps his daughter's Instagram post lifted his spirits a little bit.
