Ivanka Trump opened up about the ongoing special counsel’s investigation in a new interview, telling ABC News that she has “zero concern” about the probe.
Asked if she had any concerns about “anyone in your life that you love being involved,” the president’s daughter responded with a simple, “No.”
“There’s nothing there,” she added. “Yet it’s created weeks and weeks and months of headlines.”
“So, no,” Trump said. “I have zero concern.”
Earlier in the interview, Ivanka was pressed by Abbie Huntsman about the conflict between her steering of an initiative to empower women and certain policies of her father’s administration. Specifically, Huntsman pointed to the Trump administration policy of separating families at the southern border to deter illegal crossings.
Trump responded by expressing the belief that it is not her job to contradict the policies of the administration when they break from her personal beliefs:
“My job as a member of this administration is not to share my viewpoint when they diverge. Subsequently, I was asked a question and I gave an answer, but my role in this regard is not to — is not president of all women’s issues, or running all women’s issues across the United States government.”

Huntsman pressed further, asking Ivanka if she wished she had an opportunity to speak publicly about the issue.
“I think that when you hear me start to speak publicly on an issue that’s active, it’s because my voice isn’t being heard privately,” Trump answered.
Though she has largely refrained from discussing her personal policy preferences since entering the White House, Ivanka Trump publicly broke with the administration to criticize the separation of families at the border as a result of the administration’s enforcement policy, calling it a “low point” of her time in the White House.
