Donald Trump said if his daughter Ivanka Trump was a victim of sexual harassment at her workplace, he thinks she would find another job or change careers.

"I would like to think she would find another career or find another company if that was the case," Trump told USA Today.

The GOP nominee made the comments after being asked about the sexual harassment lawsuit against now-resigned Fox News CEO Roger Ailes.

Ailes resigned after former Fox host Gretchen Carlson filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against him.

In the USA Today interview, writer Kirsten Powers said Trump's answer was "startling, even by Trumpian standards," because many women do not have the ability to quit a job without another lined up. Leaving a job hurts the victim, not the perpetrator of the harassment.

"Why should a woman be expected to upend her career just because she ended up in the crosshairs of some harasser?" Powers asked.

Ivanka Trump got a positive response from her Republican National Convention speech, and appears to be in position as a campaign advisor and advocate to her father. One pollster told Fox News, "She is an amazing spokeswoman for him."

During an interview on NBC's "Meet the Press," Trump weighed in on the Ailes controversy and said he was troubled by the women who claimed the former Fox CEO harassed them.

"Some of the women that are complaining, I know how much he's helped them. All of a sudden, they're saying these horrible things about him," Trump said.

Multiple women have come forward to address harassment by Ailes, including Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly.
