The US president’s daughter said: ‘I think I have that right, as a daughter, to believe my father.”

Ivanka Trump has said she believes her father’s denials over claims of sexual misconduct.

Ms Trump, who led the US delegation at the closing ceremony for the 2018 Pyeongchang Games, made the comment in an interview aired on NBC.

When asked if she believes women who have accused her father, US president Donald Trump, of inappropriate behaviour, Ivanka Trump called it a “pretty inappropriate question to ask a daughter”.

She added: “I believe my father, I know my father. I think I have that right as a daughter, to believe my father.”

The president has been accused of inappropriate behaviour by more than a dozen women. He has denied the allegations.
