Ivanka Trump Praises Her Dad, Calls His Rivals ‘Desperate’

Despite the “outpouring of love” for her father, Ivanka Trump acknowledges that the “hurtful things” being said about the Republican presidential front-runner are troubling.

She told Breitbart News that her dad offers “tremendous energy, enthusiasm (and) passion.” She said the campaign’s success has predictably resulted in sharp attacks by other candidates and political pundits.

“Obviously, as a daughter, it’s hurtful to hear those things said,” Ivanka Trump explained. “I know that they’re not true, so it bothers me less to my core. On the surface, it’s obviously a hurtful thing to hear as a daughter. I will say there’s so much support, and so much outpouring of love from the people, that it more than makes up for a couple of naysayers.”

She continued: “I will say that I’m not altogether surprised, because ultimately, the establishment thrives on influence and power. And my father’s made it very clear he’s not looking to be influenced, not looking to take donations from interested parties.”

Ivanka Trump alleged that it “smacks of desperation” that other Republican White House hopefuls are attacking her father. “Candidates who have been talking about for eight months about how they’re optimists, they’re different from everyone else … they’re getting in the mud worse than anyone,” she said. “But that’s politics, right? So if nothing else, this primary process really reveals the true character of a lot of people.”
