Ivanka Trump is absolutely glowing as she shows off her baby bump in the latest edition of Town and Country. Ivanka announced her pregnancy with real estate developer Jared Kushner in September. This will be their third child together.
During the interview Ivanka talks about her father, 69 year old Donald Trump and his controversial presidential run.
“He is running for the highest elective office in this country, and arguably the world,” Ivanka says. “It’s amazing to see how his message has resonated and what he’s been able to accomplish as a non-politician with a very strong point of view.”
“He’s my father and I love him and I fully support him,” Ivanka adds.
Ivanka admits that she doesn’t always agree with some of his questionable behavior.
“Well, I’m his daughter. In a political capacity, I don’t [admonish him],” she says. “It’s his campaign. I don’t feel that’s my role. But I would challenge him as a child. That’s what children do. [My daughter] Arabella challenges me every day. People ask me, do I ever disagree with my father? It would be a little strange if I didn’t.”
It’s interesting to hear her opinions on accusations that her father is sexist. She is definitely his biggest defender with this issue.
“You could also list a few comments he’s made about men that are unflattering,” she says about headline-making comments he’s made about Fox anchor Megyn Kelly and about fellow presidential hopeful Carly Fiorina. “I think he’s highly gender-neutral. If he doesn’t like someone he’ll articulate that, and I think it’s also part of what resonates about him. He’ll say what he’s thinking. I think that’s very refreshing, because with most politicians I’ve witnessed, you have no idea if what’s coming out of their mouths is married to their viewpoints.”
She doesn’t stop there. Ivanka goes as far as to call Donald a feminist!
“He 100 percent believes in equality of gender, so, yes, absolutely — socially, politically, and economically,” she says. “He has confidence in women to do any job that a man can do, and my whole life has been proof of that.”
