The New York Times’ front-page exposé of Donald Trump’s comments and alleged behavior toward women has brought new scrutiny in recent days, but one powerful woman is standing up for him. Speaking both “in the capacity as a daughter and… as an executive who’s worked alongside of him” for over a decade, Ivanka Trump defended her father, calling the latest accusations “disturbing,” reports “CBS This Morning” co-host Norah O’Donnell.
“I’m not in every interaction my father has, but he’s not a groper. It’s not who he is,” she said. “And I’ve known my father obviously my whole life and he has total respect for women. He was promoting women in development and construction at a time when it was unheard of. There was no trend towards equality in the real estate and construction industry back in the 1980s. And he was doing it because he believes ultimately in merit.”
