In an interview with The Associated Press, the president’s eldest child said she thinks the country has “too much pressure” on women to conform to a society that says they’re not beautiful enough to be seen in a fashion-forward way.
“Women are supposed to be beautiful.
It’s not a challenge for women,” Ivanka Trump said in the interview with the Associated Press.
“If you’re not, then what’s the point?”
The president’s daughter said the real problem is women don’t feel beautiful enough, and women feel like they’re judged unfairly for what they’re wearing.
Ivanka Trump has been vocal about the importance of dressing to impress in public, and in her new book, “The Beauty Myth,” she outlines how her mother’s father, President Donald Trump, pushed her to look “tougher and meaner” than her peers.
“He wanted me to look like the most beautiful person on the planet,” she wrote in the book.
“I could never do it, but I wanted to try.
It felt so wrong.
I knew if I did, I would be judged, and it would hurt.”
Ivanka said her mother did it “to make sure I looked like a woman.
That’s why she did it.
I was a little insecure and thought I was ugly.
But that’s OK.
I learned to respect myself.
I realized I was beautiful.
I think there’s so much pressure on women these days, especially in the entertainment industry.
It feels like the worst kind of pressure.
And I think it’s actually great.
It gives people a chance to look good, and to show off.
Women are supposed a lot of things, and they don’t always deserve it.”
Ivankas book is available on Amazon.
The president Jr.’s book, titled “The Art of the Deal: Why We Get What We Want,” comes out Friday.
In it, he calls women who work in the media, advertising, and politics “whiny” and says they’ve been treated “like objects.”
“You can’t just tell a woman, ‘You know, you can’t have these ideas, you’re just a bitch.
Don’t even talk to her,'” he wrote.
“And that’s what a lot, a lot women say.
They don’t want to talk to you.
They’re afraid of you.”
In an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal, Ivanka’s father wrote that the media “has a tendency to treat the average person as if they’re little dolls or objects.”
He also said that women are often treated differently by people who work for them.
“I’ve seen it happen in my own life, in my business, in other people’s lives,” he wrote in his op-eds.
“It’s hard for me to believe that my daughter Ivanka can be as successful as she is because she’s not an average woman.
She is a unique, special, unique woman.
But when you look at the millions of other women who’ve faced this same kind of treatment, it’s hard to believe she’s any different from the average woman.”
The president told The AP earlier this year that he didn’t see Ivanka’s success as a reflection of her own “womanly” qualities.
“Look, I do think that women can do anything, because it’s just a matter of who’s doing it,” he said at the time.
“They can be CEOs.
They can be teachers.
They may be lawyers.
And they can be journalists.
And it’s really hard to argue that they are not women.
They are women.
And we just have to do our best.”
Trump’s daughter added that she’s working on a new line of cosmetics that will be a “fancy” alternative to the “cute” ones the family is already carrying.
