The Trump scion appeared on Thursday morning’s edition of “Fox & Friends,” telling host Steve Doocy, “She’s got the beautiful looks, right? She’s got — she’s smart, she’s smart, smart, smart. … She’s certainly got my vote.”
NOTE: Donald Trump has been mocked severely for raving about his daughter’s beauty and even saying he would date her if they weren’t related.
“She’ll just be 35,” Eric Trump responded, and said her 35th birthday is Oct. 30, “so she’d just makes that by about by, you know, seven, eight days.”
Host Ainsley Earhardt said Ivanka Trump has the “business sense” for the position, to which her brother responded, “She’s amazing.
The younger Trump also responded to criticism that his father is anti-Semitic after a storm of controversy erupted over the weekend surrounding his tweet that showed a Star of David with a backdrop of $100 bills, calling his rival Hillary Clinton corrupt.
“You know, it’s interesting. My sister is Jewish,” Trump said. Ivanka converted to Judaism for her marriage to Jared Kushner. “My brother-in-law is Jewish. We hire more Jewish people in our organization than anybody. I mean, half of our organization is Jewish. I hear these claims, and it is so ridiculous, and it is really the worst part of politics.”
