After delivering her speech at the 2016 Republican National Convention, some critics suggested that Ivanka Trump's remarks sounded very similar to things Hillary Clinton would say. And now, taking things a step further, it seems that Trump might have indirectly donated funds to Clinton's campaign, in addition to a pro-immigration reform nonprofit and an organization working to promote gun control.
When Jill Martinelli and Sabine Le Guyader — Clinton supporters and the designers behind independent jewelry brand Lady Grey — received a recent order from Trump for an ear cuff, they felt compelled to do something. So they reportedly sent Trump a "thank you" note in the package with her purchase.
"We're happy to let you know that the proceeds of your sale have been generously donated to the American Immigration Council, the Everytown for Gun Safety Organization, and the Hillary Clinton campaign," they wrote to Trump. "We hope you enjoy your new Lady Grey #helixcuff. Best, Sabine and Jill."
Their note to the Republican presidential candidate's daughter was posted on Instagram and it went viral.
"While we were flattered to receive an order from Ivanka Trump, our social and political views couldn't be further from those of the Trump campaign," Martinelli wrote to The Cut.
They also told Yahoo Style that they hope their letter inspires other people to support "the causes that they believe in, no matter how big or small."
While some of the proceeds were donated to organizations that support immigration reform and gun safety, these are also two issues that Clinton has been somewhat inconsistent with during her political career. On immigration, Clinton has both supported and opposed the building of a barrier along the border. And although she supports background checks for gun purchases, according to PolitiFact, Clinton has also spoken out about protecting second amendment rights and opposing national gun licensing.
