Ivanka Trump has stood by her father, saying she believes the President’s denials about accusations of sexual misconduct.
Donald Trump’s eldest daughter was questioned by an NBC News journalist where she was frankly asked, “Do you believe your father’s accusers?”
“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,” Ms Trump said in the interview that aired on Monday.
“I don’t think that’s a question you would ask many other daughters.
“I believe my father. I know my father. I think I have that right as a daughter to believe my father.”

More than a dozen women have come forward with claims of past misconducts against the US President.
He boasted in a tape which surfaced during his 2016 presidential campaign that his celebrity status allowed him to kiss and grope women with impunity.
The White House and Mr Trump have dismissed the allegations.
