Ivanka Trump has outraged users on Twitter following her response to a question from a reporter about her father’s sexual misconduct.

At the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea, NBC News reporter Peter Alexander asked the President’s daughter, and Senior White House Adviser, whether she believed the stories of women who have accused her father of sexual misconduct. At least twenty women have come forward to accuse Trump of sexual misconduct but he and his official spokespeople have always challenged the validity of the claims.

Ivanka seemed irritated and called the questioning ‘inappropriate.’

‘I think it’s a pretty inappropriate question to ask a daughter if she believes the accusers of her father when he’s affirmatively stated that there’s no truth to it,’ Ivanka responded.

‘I believe my father. I know my father. So I think I have that right as a daughter to believe my father.’

People were naturally quick to point out that Ivanka shouldn't have the the role she has in the White House if she isn’t willing to answer the tough questions, and she was criticised for wanting to have the best of both worlds.
