Ivanka Trump spoke to Gayle King of CBS This Morning, and they discussed the harsh Saturday Night Live sketch saying her perfume would be called "complicit" — a jab from critics who think Ivanka should challenge her father on more issues:

"If being complicit ... is wanting to be a force for good and to make a positive impact, then I'm complicit. I don't know that the critics who may say that of me, if they found themselves in this very unique and unprecedented situation that I am now in, would do any differently than I am doing ... I hope time will prove that I have done a good job and much more importantly that my father's administration is the success that I know it will be."

On why she doesn't publicly speak out on issues ranging from Planned Parenthood and gay rights to climate change: "I would say not to conflate lack of public denouncement with silence."

On ways to make your voice heard:

"In some case it's through protest and ... going on the nightly news and talking about or denouncing every issue in which you disagree with. Other times it is quietly, and directly, and candidly ... So where I disagree with my father, he knows it, and I express myself with total candor. ... I respect the fact that he always listens. It's how he was in business. It's how he is as president."

The Rockefeller Foundation announced on Monday that it will allocate $1 billion over the next three years to address the pandemic and its aftermath.

Why it matters: The mishandled pandemic and the effects of climate change threaten to reverse global progress and push more than 100 million people into poverty around the world. Governments and big NGOs need to ensure that the COVID-19 recovery reaches everyone who needs it.

Fox News President Jay Wallace and anchors Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum are among those recommended to get tested and quarantine after possible exposure to COVID-19, the New York Times first reported Sunday night.

The big picture: The Fox News contingent, which also included "The Five" show hosts Juan Williams and Dana Perino, were on a charter flight from Nashville to New York following Thursday's presidential debate with a person who later tested positive for the coronavirus.
