President Donald Trump’s first daughter-in-law Lara Trump said that NBC was “incredibly inappropriate” to ask Ivanka Trump if she believed her father’s sexual misconduct and assault accusers during an interview in South Korea last month.
The interview was the latest sign that the media is out “to get” the Trump family, Lara added during an appearance on Fox Business Network.
“If it wasn’t for a double standard the media would have no standard at all in this country,” said Lara Trump, who is married to the president’s son, Eric. “It’s shocking, it is ridiculous, it’s sad, I could give you a million words to describe this but it’s not surprising, because the people who are in charge of the mainstream media are out to get the president and our entire family at every turn.”
Lara Trump also praised her sister-in-law and said NBC had not been “very kind” to the president. “I give her a lot of credit for going on NBC quite frankly because they haven’t been very kind to the president,” she said of Ivanka Trump. “And I thought this was incredibly inappropriate to ask Ivanka and she handled with such class, such grace.”
Ivanka Trump, a “senior adviser” in her father’s administration, spoke with NBC for a wide-ranging interview that aired February 26 during which she defended Donald Trump from his accusers but also deemed the question “inappropriate.” “I believe my father,” she said. “I know my father. So I think I have that right as a daughter to believe my father.”
