initially hesitated before mostly articulate around the
question, redirecting a concentration to a president’s daughter,

before entertainment a response.
“The personality in a administration is Ivanka Trump. She’s got a

in a poetic way, to try and press that agenda.
“I’m not an executive spokesman, I’m only here for women’s
event. we consider there’s a genuine concentration by her and responsiveness
indeed by her father to that. ”
Trump has mostly come underneath glow per his diagnosis of women,
a many critical instances including
allegations of passionate attack and the
coarse “Billy Bush” audio recording in that he described
groping women. He’s called a allegations fabrications and
upheld off a audio recording as “locker room talk.”

for rolling behind manners requiring employers to yield women
birth control, supposing it contradicts their religious
or dignified beliefs.
Schwarzman has lauded Ivanka’s process proposals in a past,
essay an Op-Ed in The Wall Street Journal over a summer
endorsing her plan to enhance paid family leave benefits
for new parents.
When a judge followed adult with Schwarzman about a timeline
