WASHINGTON (CNN) — Eric Trump said Tuesday his sister Ivanka is “strong” and “powerful” and would never allow herself to be sexually harassed by her boss.
“Ivanka is a strong, powerful woman, she wouldn’t allow herself to be [subjected] to it, and by the way, you should take it up with Human Resources, and I think she would as a strong person, at the same time, I don’t think she would allow herself to be subjected to that,” he told CBS’s Charlie Rose on “CBS This Morning” while discussing former Fox News head Roger Ailes alleged sexual harassment of women employees.
Fox News host Megyn Kelly, who it’s been reported was harassed years ago by Ailes, tweeted one word about Eric Trump’s comments: “Sigh.”
Donald Trump stirred controversy this week when he said that Ivanka would “find another career or find another company” if she were subjected to sexual harassment.
Eric Trump also said that the Trump Organization treats sexual harassment in the work place as “an absolute no-go.”
“We all run a company, my father runs a company, we take this – that is an absolute no-go anywhere, and that’s very much the case,” he said.
Eric Trump recently told CNN that his sister “does the princess thing very well.”
