Ivanka Trump says questions on president’s sexual allegations ‘inappropriate’
Ivanka Trump expects to be treated seriously as a senior White House adviser. But when faced with uncomfortable questions about her father’s treatment of women, she’d prefer to be viewed as just a daughter.
President Donald Trump’s elder daughter drew fresh scrutiny Monday for an NBC interview in which she argued that a query to her about the women accusing the president of inappropriate behavior was “pretty inappropriate.”
The comment highlighted her complicated roles as both first daughter and advocate for women and families, serving in an administration led by a president accused of inappropriate behavior by more than a dozen women.
Asked if she believed the accusations against her father, Ivanka Trump said: “I think it’s a pretty inappropriate question to ask a daughter if she believes the accusers of her father when he’s affirmatively stated that there’s no truth to it. I don’t think that’s a question you would ask many other daughters.”
Trump has denied the allegations, and his daughter said she stood by him. “I believe my father, I know my father,” she said. “I think I have that right as a daughter, to believe my father.” She was interviewed after leading the US delegation at the closing ceremony for the Winter Olympics,
Ivanka Trump’s trip to Asia included a private meeting with the South Korean president and a pledge that she would use her visit to advocate maximum pressure on North Korea to halt its nuclear program. Trump documented her journey on social media, posting photos and messages to athletes.
Before she left Asia, Trump wrote: “Thank you to President Moon, First Lady Kim & the people of South Korea for the warm hospitality you showed me, our Presidential Delegation & #TeamUSA during the #WinterOlympics.”
