Parents pull kids from class as Ivanka Trump visits CT school

Some Connecticut parents were angry over a surprise visit that first daughter and White House advisor Ivanka Trump paid to their children's school on Monday.

Some parents were able to pull their kids from class before the visit, according to the report.

"This ought to have been conveyed to our consideration, in spite of the fact that I do comprehend security reasons", parent Karey Fitzgerald revealed to News 12.

They said they received little information about Ivanka's visit, possibly due to security concerns.
