Donald Trump Joked About Dating His Own Daughter-Truth!
Summary of eRumor:
Rumors have gone viral that Donald Trump, a 2016 presidential contender, said he would date his daughter, Ivanka Trump, if she weren’t his daughter.
This one is true.
In 2006, Donald Trump and daughter Ivanka appeared on ABC’s “The View” to promote their TV show “The Apprentice.”
During the appearance, one of the hosts asked Trump how he would feel if Ivanka posed for Playboy. Trump replied:
“It would be really disappointing — not really — but it would depend on what’s inside the magazine.”
He added: “I don’t think Ivanka would do that, although she does have a very nice figure. I’ve said if Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.”
A representative for Trump later told the Associated Press that the real estate mogul “was absolutely joking” and had attempted to poke fun at himself for dating younger women.
The awkward exchange was long forgotten before Trump’s high-profile announcement that he was running for president in 2016.
