POLITICO The New York Times’ first-ever interview with Ivanka Trump has been out and she has plenty of advice for women — especially women of color.
The interview comes a week after the Trump administration announced that it was scrapping the Gender-Based Violence Reporting Act, which requires all federal agencies to report and identify gender-based violence.
The bill was intended to help identify and prosecute sexual assault on campus, and President Donald Trump called it a “good idea.”
But since the bill’s demise, Trump has also been pushing a campaign to ban the transgender bathroom use and other gender-neutral public accommodations, and to make it easier to sue employers that discriminate against women.
“It’s very important to know that we’re not a perfect country, and we’re certainly not perfect,” Trump said.
We have to respect ourselves, and I think that we have to be very careful about what we do.””
We have to take care of ourselves, too.
We have to respect ourselves, and I think that we have to be very careful about what we do.”
As for how she can help women who are victims of violence, Trump told Politico: “You know, I think a lot about my life, and it’s very personal, and so I’ve spent a lot more time with women.
And I know that I’ve made some mistakes.
And the women I know who are on my team have been in this same situation.”
I just want to say thank you.
And, you know, you deserve a lot from me, and you’ve made me so much more compassionate, I can’t tell you how much.
I think it’s important for women, particularly women of colour, to be able to speak up, and also women of courage, because we need to speak out and say, you need to be heard.
We need to say we’re worth it, and the only way we can be worth it is if we are able to be our best selves, she said.
And the president didn’t stop there.
She also said she wanted to help her daughters, who are in the process of graduating from college, because “they have a big future ahead of them, and they’re ready for that.”
She also talked about her mother, who passed away a few years ago, and how she would never forget her “very good friend” and “great mom.”
“My mom is one of the greatest people that I know, and one of my great heroes, and she’s been a role model for me,” she said, and “my mother was a wonderful person.
And she died young.”
