Ivanka Trump: Dad Not Sexist Because He Employs Me (Video)

Ivanka Trump defended her father, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, against charges of sexism on Sept. 5 by pointing to her employment as an executive vice-president at Trump Enterprises (video below).

Ivanka told CNN host Gloria Borger:

He's absolutely not a sexist. There’s no way I could be the person I am today if my father was a sexist. I would not be one of his senior-most executives. And I would not be working shoulder-to-shoulder with my brothers. I would be working for my brothers, if at all. So, I think actions ultimately speak louder than words. My father has 40 years of employing women.

In regards to her dad's public name-calling of some women, Ivanka said: "He calls men some pretty rough names, too."

A Washington Post/ABC News poll released in August found Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton leading Donald among women 58 percent to 35 percent, noted POLITICO.

Clinton was also ahead of Donald with college-educated women 57 percent to 38 percent.

Donald led Clinton 51 percent to 41 among men.

A new poll release by Morning Consult on Sept. 4 has Clinton leading Donald among all voters 42 percent to 40 percent.

Forty-six percent support Donald's 2000-mile U.S.-Mexico border wall while 45 percent oppose the structure, which would ultimately have to be funded by Congress, although Donald has repeatedly said that he is going to force Mexico to pay for it.

Fifty-six percent agree with Donald's "leave and reapply" plan in which undocumented immigrants would deport themselves to their home countries and then reapply for citizenship, an idea that was generally laughed at when GOP nominee Mitt Romney proposed it in 2012.

Thirty-seven percent oppose "leave and reapply."

Thirty-five percent support an increase in legal immigration, while 52 percent want to decrease it.

Fifty-eight percent support allowing noncriminal undocumented immigrants to remain in the U.S., provided they meet certain criteria, but 33 percent oppose that idea.
