'WE NEED TO SEE ACTION FASTER' Fil-Am chef Angela Dimayuga demands Ivanka Trump to walk the talk

Mission Chinese Food’s Filipina-American executive chef Angela Dimayuga is standing by her decision to decline a feature for the website of US President Donald Trump's daughter Ivanka.
Dimayuga made the snub public via Instagram, posting her response to the offer in full. The chef wrote plainly that she is "for women who actually empower other women."
As it bears the Trump name, Dimayuga discredited the sender's claim that Ivanka's website is "non-political."
She further wrote in her response, "As a queer person of color and daughter of immigrant parents, I am not interested in being profiled as an aspirational figure for those that support a brand and President that slyly disparages female empowerment."
In an interview with the online arm of New York Magazine, Dimayuga firmly stated, "If she (Ivanka) is trying to move in a positive direction, we need to see action faster."
"As a woman, as a queer Filipino with immigrant parents, all the things within my personal politics are important to me: women’s rights, immigrant rights, gay rights," Dimayuga added.
Ivanka Trump has been attending events as an advocate of women's rights, but has been met with jeers in light of her father's personal actions and endorsement of questionable policies.
The first daughter was recently parodied in sketch comedy show "Saturday Night Love" in a skit called "Complicit" — a reference to her passive response to her father's behavior. —ALG, GMA News
