Ivanka Trump: My father will accept the outcome of the election
Joining campaign manager Kellyanne Conway in undercutting her father’s baseless accusation that the impending general election will be stolen due to voter fraud, Ivanka Trump told Time Magazine editor Nancy Gibbs that her father will concede the election to Democratic rival Hillary Clinton if he loses.
“Well, look, my father is in this to win it and, you know, I’m not interested in talking about alternative outcomes and, of course, I think my father will always do the right thing,” Trump said. “That’s the type of person he is.”
Speaking at Fortune’s Most Powerful Women Summit, Trump highlighted what she characterized as “vicious” behavior on behalf of the political press, before assuring Gibbs that her father will accept the outcome of the election.
“When you asked me before, do I think it’s rigged, I think from a media perspective, it’s very hard to get an accurate portrayal of who he is as a person or the business he’s built, his professional accomplishments,” Trump said. “It’s borderline impossible. In large part, we’ve stopped even trying with a lot of the mainstream publications because they just don’t – you know, I was going crazy around a year ago calling these reporters, trying to get them to at least hear our perspective and it’s just a waste of time. You fall down such a rabbit hole with this and it doesn’t yield a result.”
“But to your point, if – he’ll either win or he won’t win,” Trump said, “and I believe he’ll accept the outcome either way.”
