Ivanka Trump: Question about father’s sexual misconduct accusers ‘inappropriate’

Greg Nash

Ivanka Trump said it is inappropriate to ask her about the sexual misconduct allegations against her father, President Trump. 

“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,” the first daughter told NBC’s Peter Alexander in an interview that aired on Monday. 

“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,” she continued. 

Numerous women have come forward to accuse the president of sexual misconduct. 

{mosads}Allegations against Trump intensified during the presidential race after an “Access Hollywood” tape from 2005 surfaced in which Trump was heard bragging about groping and kissing women without consent. 

Trump in a tweet last week denied an accusation from Rachel Crooks, who came forward with her allegation in 2016. His tweet came after The Washington Post published a profile on Crooks.

“Never happened!” Trump tweeted.
