Ivanka Trump Defends Her Father Against ‘Disturbing’ Allegations: ‘He’s Not a Groper’


Ivanka Trump emerged to defend her father and say he’s “not a groper” no matter what the New York Times has written about her father’s treatment of women.

While one of the piece’s most prominent interviewees, Rowanne Lane, has spoken out against the Times for spinning her statements, the paper has stated that it stands behind their work on the basis that their article’s theme of Donald Trump‘s complicated relationship with women remains true.

The real estate mogul’s daughter spoke with CBS This Morning‘s Norah O’Donnell, and called the Times article “pretty disturbing” for both its allegations, and the fact that its argument has been discredited by its leading subject.

“Most of the time, when stories are inaccurate, they’re not discredited, and I will be frustrated by that. But in this case, I think they went so far.”

O’Donnell also asked Mrs. Trump about that fact that Lane was just one of 50 women interviewed by the Times, and that several of them have provided details about unwanted advances, commentary, and physical contact they received in their interactions with the mogul.

“I’m not in every interaction my father has, but he’s not a groper,” Mrs. Trump said. She went on to promise further that her father respects women and she pointed to how many he employed as part of his business empire.
