Ivanka Trump defended her father Donald Trump from charges that he was sexist, noting in an interview with CNN that he had promoted her to an executive position within his company.
“He’s absolutely not a sexist,” she told CNN’s Gloria Borger. “There’s no way I could be the person I am today if my father was a sexist.”
“I would not be one of his senior-most executives. I would not be working shoulder-to-shoulder with my brothers. I would be working for my brothers, if at all,” Trump argued.
Trump dismissed her father’s history of using sexist language to demean women, noting that he also used strong language against men. “So, you know, I think actions ultimately speak louder than words. My father has 40 years of history of employing women.”
