As President Donald Trump’s eldest daughter Ivanka Trump tries to deflect criticism for her father’s “racist” comments, she’s coming under fire for her own role.
Ivanka Trump is the youngest child of President Donald J. Trump and First Lady Melania Trump.
She is now the youngest person in the White House.
In her book, “Crippled America: How the Clintons Destroyed Our Democracy” published by Simon & Schuster, Ivanka Trump said her father was “very upset” by her comments, but she said they were not intended to hurt her family.
“I was just talking to him about his daughter and her remarks, and he was just really upset by it,” she said in the book, published Tuesday.
I’m not taking responsibility for it. “
And he was like, ‘I’m not going to be critical.
I’m not taking responsibility for it.
It’s not my fault.'”
The book also said Ivanka Trump was “not upset” with the media for reporting on her father and his comments, saying she had “been so hurt and disappointed” by their coverage.
“It’s my dad’s comments that are causing this outrage,” she wrote.
“His comments were offensive, inappropriate, and wrong.
They were offensive and inappropriate to my father and hurt my family.
The press has treated him like a villain and a bully.”
In an interview with CNN’s Erin Burnett on Tuesday, Ivanka said she was not trying to hurt anyone.
“This is not about me,” she told Burnett.
“My father’s comments were not about my dad or me, they were about the fact that his comments were racially insensitive and racist.”
She also said she felt the media was unfairly accusing her father of being a racist.
“They were not reporting my father’s words, so they had no idea that his words were offensive to my family, and they didn’t know that they were offensive,” she added.
Ivanka said she had no regrets about her comments.
“We’re not trying in any way to take any of the blame for what my father said, and what his daughter said was totally appropriate,” she claimed.
The president of the United States is entitled to his own opinions, and I think his views are his own, and the American people are entitled to them.”
