Ivanka Trump Slams ‘Inappropriate’ Questions About Donald’s Sexual Misconduct

(JTA) — Ivanka Trump said she believes her father’s denials of sexual misconduct, adding “it’s a pretty inappropriate question to ask a daughter.”

Trump, who serves as a senior adviser to her father, President Trump, made the comments during an interview Sunday with NBC in South Korea, where she led the U.S. delegation at the closing ceremony of the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang.

“I don’t think that’s a question you would ask many other daughters,” she said. “I believe my father, I know my father, so I think I have that right as a daughter to believe my father.”

Several women have come forward to accuse Donald Trump of sexual misconduct and he has boasted about such conquests, including in an “Access Hollywood” tape from 2005 that surfaced during the presidential campaign.

The first daughter also called her father’s suggestion of arming school teachers an option that “needs to be discussed,” though she said she was unsure if it would be effective.

“Obviously there would have to be an incredibly high standard for who would be able to bear arms in our school,” she told NBC. “But I think there is no one solution for creating safety.”
