Host Megyn Kelly took the opportunity to ask the daughter of the Republican presidential nominee about his controversial interactions with women.
Kelly mentioned when Trump retweeted the picture of his wife, Melania, next to an unflattering photo of his primary opponent Ted Cruz’s wife, Heidi. Kelly has also had her own brushes with the Republican nominee on Twitter and on the debate stage.
“I wanna ask you about women while you’re here,” Kelly said. “Obviously your dad’s had some trouble with them – he’s 15 points behind Hillary in most of the polls with women, and clearly he’s made some comments with women that have had led to that. I’ve always wondered how you reacted.”
“My father can be an equal-opportunity offender,” Ivanka replied. “If somebody says something against him, he will speak his mind. And he treats women equal to how he treats men.”
“He’s said plenty of rough things about men over the years, and I discourage him from doing that, as I discourage him from doing that with women,” she added.
“In a certain way, there’s no bias in his viewpoint. He views all people equally – men or women, it doesn’t matter – and he treats them accordingly. And I think we’ve seen that. He’s very authentic, and he’ll tell anyone, man or woman, what he’s thinking and how he feels.”
