Ivanka Trump on NY Times Story: 'Pretty Disturbing'

("CBS This Morning")

Ivanka Trump on Wednesday rejected claims that her father, presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump, mistreats women after The New York Times published a story over the weekend portraying him as demeaning women.

Appearing on "CBS This Morning," Ivanka Trump criticized the Times report, saying she found it "pretty disturbing, based on the facts as I know them. And, I very much know them, both in the capacity as a daughter and — in the capacity as an executive who's worked alongside of him at this company for over a decade."

According to the Times' report, Trump had a history of "unwelcome romantic advances, unending commentary on the female form, a shrewd reliance on ambitious women, and unsettling workplace conduct."

"I was bothered by it," Ivanka Trump said. Adding that she believed the reporters "went so far, they had such a strong thesis, and created facts to reinforce it."

The daughter of the real estate mogul also refuted a claim in the story that her father "groped" a woman during a business meeting. "He's not a groper," she said. "That's not who he is."

She pointed out that Trump promoted women in his company "at a time when it was unheard of. There was no trend towards equality in real estate and the construction industry back in the 1980s."

Ivanka Trump believes a new side of her father would emerge in the general election. "The race is different now," she said. "And people will see a softer side of him."

Rowanne Brewer Lane, an ex-girlfriend of Trump's and one of the women quoted in the Times story, told Fox News the newspaper spun her words and that she "did not have a negative experience with Donald Trump."

The reporters who wrote the story, however, stand by it, according to a CNN interview. Reporter Megan Twohey said they would like to speak to Trump again about his relationships with women.

"We'd be happy to continue talking to him about this," Twohey added.
