Critics of Ivanka Trump pointed to an NBC interview with the White House advisor involving a question about the numerous women who’ve accused her father of sexual abuse and misconduct, as more evidence of her problematic role in the administration.
When asked by Peter Alexander if she believes the 16 women who have come forward to accuse President Donald Trump of groping them, forcibly kissing them, and other misconduct, Ivanka shot down the question as “inappropriate.”
“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 there’s no truth to it,” she said. “I don’t think that’s a question you would ask many other daughters. I believe my father, I know my father, so I think I have that right as a daughter to believe my father.”
Over the weekend, Ivanka traveled to South Korea to represent the White House at the closing ceremony of the Winter Olympics. She also attended a dinner at the residence of President Moon Jae In, where she spoke about efforts “to ensure that the Korean Peninsula is denuclearized.”
