Ivanka Trump shuts down NBC reporter who went too far: ‘I think it’s a pretty inappropriate question’

With a heavy reliance on charm, first daughter Ivanka Trump shut down NBC’s Peter Alexander in an interview aired on Monday when he ambushed her with a question about female accusers of her father, President Donald Trump.

“Do you believe your father’s [sexual misconduct] accusers?” Alexander asked.

“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 there’s no truth to it,” Ivanka Trump replied, showing not a trace of irritation.

With a disarming smile, she proceeded to put the reporter in his place.

“I don’t think that’s a question you’d ask many other daughters,” she told Alexander.

“I believe my father. I know my father,” Ivanka added. “I think I have that right as a daughter to believe my father.”

Commenting on special counsel Robert Mueller’s ongoing investigation into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, the president’s oldest daughter said they “believe that Mueller will do his work.”

When Alexander asked Ivanka if she thinks Mueller can be trusted “to be clear,” she replied: “I do.”

Ivanka also acknowledges that she has not been interviewed by Mueller’s team.
