Ivanka Trump believes it is “inappropriate” for her to be asked about the sexual misconduct allegations that have been leveled against her father.
“I believe my father. I know my father,” the first daughter and White House senior adviser said about President Donald Trump during a Monday interview on Today.
During a sitdown about the Winter Olympics with NBC News’ Peter Alexander, Trump was asked about her father’s stance on Russia collusion, his new proposal of arming students in the wake of the Parkland, Fla., massacre and about the women who have come forward with allegations against her father.
“Do you believe your father’s accusers?” asked Alexander.
“I think it’s a pretty inappropriate question to ask a daughter if she believes the accusers of her father when he has affirmatively stated that there is no truth to it,” she replied. “I don’t think that’s a question you would ask many other daughters.”
She then added, “I think I have that right, as a daughter, to believe my father.”
President Trump has been accused of sexual misconduct by at least 16 women; he has denied all accusations.
