During a CBS This Morning interview, Eric Trump brushed off a question about what his sister Ivanka Trump would do if she was sexually harassed, saying she was too strong and powerful to be subjected to it.
CBS’s Charlie Rose asked the younger Trump about a statement made by his father in a Monday interview with Kirsten Powers. When asked how he would feel if his daughter Ivanka was sexually harassed, Donald Trump responded that “I would like to think she would find another career or find another company if that was the case.”
Eric began by denouncing sexual harassment and reiterating how seriously he took the issue. “Listen, we all run a company, my father runs a company, that is an absolute no-go anywhere, and that’s very much the case.”
Stll, he argued, “Ivanka is a strong, powerful woman. She wouldn’t allow herself to be, you know, objected [sic] to it.”
Because she was a “strong person,” Eric said, she probably would go to human resources if it did happen. “At the same time, I don’t think she would allow herself to be subjected to that. I think that’s the point he was making and he did so well.”
