It is often said that Ivanka Trump is the sane one in the Trump family, and it definitely seems that’s the case.
Back when Donald Trump started his campaign, he made his famous rant against Mexicans. Trump famously said, “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best … They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”
Ivanka Trump was involved in a lawsuit in which she gave a deposition. The lawsuit was between a chef who pulled out of the Trumps’ Washington, D.C., hotel property following the Republican nominee’s comments. An August 2015 New York Magazine article first reported Ivanka Trump had drafted statements to walk back from her father’s comments, but a spokesperson for Ivanka Trump declined to comment at the time.
In the deposition, Ivanka said, “His statements were mischaracterized as being a categorical attack on Hispanics. And I felt that it was very important that he clarified the fact that that was not the case. He had not said that. He had not attacked Hispanic people. But that was the immediate narrative that had been spun.”
Trump said she wanted a clarification, not a retraction, from her father because she felt that his “comments were being misconstrued.”
In the deposition, Trump was asked to share what her statement said. Ivanka said, “It said that I — it said — basically I was playing around with the idea of the fact that the media was spinning what he said to be about Hispanic people generally, as opposed to illegal immigrants, which he subsequently clarified on his own in countless interviews. And the fact that my father has a tremendous relationship with people of Hispanic descent.”
Can you imagine being Ivanka, or a member of Trump’s campaign, and trying to reign this crazy man in? It must be the pinnacle of frustration and helplessness.
Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner are currently on vacation in Croatia, trying to get a break from the craziness.
