Donald Trump's Family Defends His Treatment Of Women

During a Town Hall with CNN's Anderson Cooper, three women in Donald Trump's life defended him as a good husband and father.

His daughter Ivanka Trump, 34, told Cooper "His actions speak louder than the words of many politicians who talk about gender equality, but it's not evidenced in their daily employment practices. Both at the Trump Organization and also in a more personal capacity, the type of father he was to a daughter — to daughters — I think evidences how he feels about our gender in general."

She also referenced to the women holding top positions within Trump's real estate company.

Ivanka went on to say, "The facts speak for themselves. I have witnessed these incredible female role models that he's employed in the highest executive positions at the Trump Organization my entire life. And an industry that has been dominated by men, is still dominated by men but certainly was when he was starting out in his career, and he was employing some of these women and raising them through the ranks. For me, I think the way he raised me, the way he raised Tiffany, it's a testament to the fact that he believes in inspiring women, empowering women."

Donald Trump's other daughter, Tiffany Trump, 22, stated "my father, since I've been a little girl, has always just inspired me — and had so much faith in me to just be the best person I can be, the best woman I can be. He wants us to do the best — and he has the utmost faith that we can accomplish whatever we set our minds to just as well as men, if not better, and we're such strong, hard workers."

Trump's wife, Melania, added that he "treats everyone equally." She shared, "If you're woman and he attacks — they attack him — he will attack back. No matter who you are. We're all human and he treats them equal as men. I think that's very important. He doesn't make a difference. And he encourages everybody, man or a woman."
