Ivanka Trump complimented by Russian cosmonaut onboard ISS: "When I see you...my mood improves and rises"
Ivanka got the opportunity to speak with the ISS crew during her visit to the NASA Johnson Space Center in Houston on Thursday
Ivanka Trump landed in Houston, Texas on Thursday for a tour of the NASA Johnson Space Centre, where the first daughter met local high school students involved in a robotics competition. While there, Ivanka also managed to receive compliments from one of the cosmonauts onboard the International Space Station via a phone conversation, reports Sky News.
In order to blend in and get in the spirit of things, Ivanka showed up at the space center in a bright white power suit, so it looked like the 36-year-old was trying to mingle with the astronaut outfits that were on display. For her visit, Ivanka donned a powder-white crisp, double-breasted linen blazer, which she paired with a matching pair of linen boot-cut pants.
The stylish and elegant trousers were cut just above the ankle, showing off Ivanka’s trim legs. She accessorized the attire with a pair of black, flat shoes, which were a far cry from her usual high heels, and completed her look with an edgy pair of drop down black earrings.
Ivanka looked very much in her elements as she grinned ear-to-ear touring the space facilities with Republican Senator Ted Cruz. While on her tour, Ivanka also got the opportunity to speak with the crew onboard the International Space Station over a phone call.
Oleg Artemyev, a Russian cosmonaut who was on the other end of the line, couldn't help but compliment Ivanka and show his affection towards her. "I think you are a very kind and nice person," he told Ivanka over the phone. "When I see you on the TV channel and the news, my mood improves and rises."
His kind words brought an instant smile to Ivanka's face, who in turn told the entire crew that she too had dreamt of one day exploring the stars as a child. "I always wanted to go to space," she told the crew, who are flying 250 miles (402 km) above the Earth. "You are fulfilling my dream up there."
During her visit, PresidentDonald Trump's senior adviser also took the chance to pose for some light-hearted pictures with the high school students.
With the upcoming elections in November, it remains to be seen whether the Republicans would lose control of the lower House of Representatives, something that is being already suggested by polls all over the country. If that were to actually happen, it would entirely crumple Trump's agenda and increase the chances of Democrats seeking impeachment proceedings against the president.
