Earlier this week, the New York Times ran a major hit piece on the presidential hopeful, based on interviews with over 50 women who’d either worked with or dated the New York real estate tycoon.
These women allegedly believe Trump is sexist and even misogynist — “allegedly” because at least three of these interviewees says the Times intentionally twisted her words.
Now one of the most important women in Trump’s life is joining the chorus of those denouncing the Times’ “scoop.”
There’s nothing unusual about a daughter coming to her father’s defense, when he’s been accused of outrageous behavior and slandered far and wide.
But when your daughter is as articulate, poised and confident as Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka, that defense is guaranteed to be powerful.
According to ConservativeTribune.com:
In a CBS interview, Ivanka Trump dropped the hammer on the article.
“I found it to be pretty disturbing, based on the facts as I know them, and obviously I very much know them,” she stated. “I was bothered by it, but it’s largely been discredited since.” (…)
“I’m not in every interaction with my dad, but he’s not a groper,” Trump flatly stated, responding to a claim in the hit piece. “It’s not who he is.”
“He was promoting women in development and construction at a time when it was unheard of,” she explained. “There was no trend towards equality in the real estate and construction industry back in the 1980’s. He was doing it because he believes ultimately in merit.”
Of course she’s biased, but Ivanka is also credible.
Anyone who has seen Ivanka Trump in action, either on her father’s reality TV show The Apprentice or on the campaign trail, can’t help but be impressed. The same holds true for his other children. It’s hard not to fantasize about having these smart, outgoing young people representing the United States.
