Presidential adviser Ivanka Trump

The White House

A new White House-backed ad campaign urges Americans people who are unemployed or unhappy in their jobs to "find something new."

The inaugural ad in the administration's "Find Something New" advertising blitz appeared Tuesday. A website offers links to training and other resources.


The scheme drew immediate criticism on social media, where many saw the effort as clueless during the pandemic and ensuing Depression-level unemployment. The role of Ivanka Trump, the president's eldest daughter and White House adviser, who often is arraigned for nepotism and ethical missteps, was also widely panned.

The ad campaign was produced by the American Workforce Policy Advisory Board. Ivanka Trump and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross co-chair the board.

"There has never been a more critical time for Americans of all ages and backgrounds to be aware of the multiple pathways to career success and gain the vocational training and skills they need to fill jobs in a changing economy," said Ms. Trump.

Additional ads will be produced to appear on TV, digital, and print platforms donated by various media companies, according to the Ad Council. Various corporations and organizations, including Apple, IBM, and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, campaign. are funding the effort. It is scheduled to continue past Election Day.

Imagine for a moment that someone had administered truth serum to he swindlers and con men of the Trump administration. Then imagine that those morally reformed Trumpsters in Washington made a television ad for Trump-Pence 2020, featuring the government's achievements since 2017.

The resulting commercial might well look something like this offering from the friendly Aussies at Juice Media, except definitely not as funny. The cheerfully foul-mouthed young lady who presents the facts has a lot to tell you about these past few years. And it's all true!

Just click and chuckle.
