Ivanka Trump: I Wasn't Expecting This 'Level Of Viciousness' In DC

Ivanka Trump

But though the White House is reportedly in good spirits, Ivanka said that she believed Comey's Senate testimony served as a distraction from some of the administration's broader policy efforts.

In an interview Monday with Fox and Friends, Ivanka Trump - daughter and assistant to President Donald Trump - said she was surprised by the "viciousness" and "ferocity" that greeted her father's presidency.

The interview, on the president's morning show of choice, touched on her father's first months in office.

All that, 'cause Ivanka said this: "There's a level of viciousness that I was not expecting".

"It is true that there's a level of viciousness in this town and certainly Ivanka, Jared, her father have been subjected to some of it", Tapper later said to former Trump operative David Urban. "My father and this administration wants to be transformative".




Ms Trump, a businesswoman and advisor to the President, then switched to key-message mode, moving the discussion to "infrastructure week" and adding that the Trump administration is trying to do "big, bold things ... so I didn't expect it to be easy".

"We remain concerned that Ivanka Trump may have used and may continue to use her official position within the White House to benefit her private interests", wrote the Democrats, who raised similar concerns in May. And they noted that she traveled with President Trump on his first trip overseas to last month, to Saudi Arabia, Israel and Italy.

On "Fox & Friends" Monday, Conway noted Comey's testimony that Loretta Lynch, as President Barack Obama's attorney general, directed him to describe the FBI probe into Hillary Clinton's email practices as a "matter" and to avoid calling it an investigation.

"It was deeply personal for me as you note standing at the Western Wall in a moment of privacy because it was really just us, it was our family that was there", she said. And we're looking to change the status quo. "Not because politics in Washington isn't vicious - it certainly can be and is - but because Ivanka and Eric Trump's father's political rise was marked by probably the nastiest and most bare-knuckled brand of public campaigning that we've seen in modern history".

The more than two-hour-long testimony saw Comey informing that Trump had directed him to drop an Federal Bureau of Investigation probe against former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.
