Ivanka Trump opens up about email controversy that has ‘no equivalency’ to Hillary’s scandal
Ivanka Trump spoke up about the controversy involving her usage of a private email account. She claimed it is far off to Hillary Clinton’s scandal.
In an exclusive interview with ABC News, the First Daughter did not make a big deal out of the comparisons between her using a private account and Clinton using a private email server in the past.
It’s no secret that President Donald Trump relentlessly slammed Clinton over it during his campaign in the past.
“There really is no equivalency,” said Ivanka.

She clarified, “All of my emails that relate to any government work — which was mainly scheduling and logistics, and managing the fact that I have a home life and work life — are all part of the public record. They’re all stored on the White House system. Everything has been preserved and archived.”
Ivanka, who is a senior adviser to the president, reportedly uses her personal account in official government transactions. President Trump came to his daughter’s defense and suggested that he looked into the matter and proclaimed that “they’re all in presidential records.”
His reaction to it was the opposite of his public demands to have justice when he brought up Clinton’s email scandal during his quest to win the presidency. He even went as far as calling the former First Lady a criminal.
As for Ivanka, she pointed out that the situations are entirely different because with Clinton’s case, many emails were deleted and hers have always been stored.
.@IvankaTrump to @DebRobertsABC on people saying Pres. Trump is creating a climate for hatred: "I reject that. I think that he is creating policy that is going to lift all Americans.” https://t.co/vN9BjW67gR pic.twitter.com/uaTD2rnGSp— Good Morning America (@GMA) November 28, 2018
She also said, “There’s no prohibition from using a private email server as long as it’s archived and there’s nothing classified.”
Even after she defended herself, Daily News reported that Democrats on Capitol Hill expressed that they “want to know if Ivanka complied” with the law and they also want to have the matter investigated.
Meanwhile, Ivanka is not the only Trump that had been getting the heat as of late. The First Lady, Melania Trump also received backlash after she had a White House staff publicly fired.
On “The Late Show,” Stephen Colbert had a comedian impersonate Melania, and they criticized her for her actions. The comedian also happened to make a joke about the president’s “privates.”
