Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr. Abruptly End Interviews In Pennsylvania (VIDEO)

GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump was in Pennsylvania this week as well as his children from his first marriage, Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr.

On Tuesday, Ivanka had a phone interview with Cosmopolitan which focused on Donald Trump’s child care policies which would give mothers six weeks paid maternity leave. Reporter Prachi Gupta asked her why the policy didn’t include fathers and also pressed her on Donald Trump’s comments in a 2004 NBC News interview that “pregnancy is an inconvenience for business.”

Excerpts:

Q: So I just want to be clear that, for same-sex adoption, where the two parents are both men, they would not be receiving special leave for that because they don’t need to recover or anything?

A: Well, those are your words, not mine. [Laughs.] Those are your words. The plan, right now, is focusing on mothers, whether they be in same-sex marriages or not.

Q: OK, I just wanted to make sure I understood. In 2004, Donald Trump said that pregnancy is an inconvenient thing for a business. It’s surprising to see this policy from him today. Can you talk a little bit about those comments, and perhaps what has changed?

A: So I think that you have a lot of negativity in these questions, and I think my father has put forth a very comprehensive and really revolutionary plan to deal with a lot of issues. So I don’t know how useful it is to spend too much time with you on this if you’re going to make a comment like that.

Ivanka then bailed a couple of questions later when she couldn’t defend her father anymore.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump Jr. was questioned by Pittsburgh’s Action News 4 News regarding Donald Trump’s shady charity practices which was uncovered by the Washington Post. Trump used donations by other people to his charity foundation to buy a 6 foot tall picture of himself. He also couldn’t defend his father, so he bailed.

Interestingly enough, he said the reason why Donald Trump is not releasing his tax returns is because it would be polically damaging to his campaign!
