Ivanka Trump has called for people to embrace a 'culture where differences of opinion and respectful debate are encouraged, not cancelled.'

The president's eldest daughter was on the campaign rally for her father speaking to supporters in Florida on Tuesday.

Addressing the crowds in Sarasota, the 38-year-old called for an end to the so-called 'cancel culture' when she said:

We want a culture where differences of opinion and respectful debate are encouraged, not canceled.

Where law enforcement is respected, where our countries rich diversity is celebrated and where people of all races, genders and creeds have a chance to achieve their God given potential.

This is the future that my father is fighting so hard every day to build.

This is the type of rhetoric and calls that the Trump campaign has been making for quite a while now but it never not shocking to hear them announce such false promises and present themselves as forward-thinking individuals.

Since the footage of the speech was shared on social media, many have lashed out at Ivanka, accusing her of hypocrisy, especially where her father has tried to drown out those who speak against and even talking over Joe Biden during the first presidential debate.

Others pointed to the anti-Trump conservative group The Lincoln Project, who Ivanka and her husband, Jared Kushner, have threatened to sue over critical billboards that were erected of the pair in Times Square.

Congressman Ted Lieu, who represents California's 33rd congressional district, also called Ivanka out over her comments after she reportedly blocked him on Twitter because of his 'differences of opinion.'

This is the second time this week that Ivanka has been heavily criticised on social media for apparent hypocrisy. On Monday, she shared a picture of herself, Kushner and president Trump with their mail-in-ballots despite the POTUS claiming for months, with no evidence, that voting by mail can lead to electoral fraud.
