Ivanka Trump dismissed the idea that her father was influenced in his decision to authorize a strike against Syria because of her reaction to the chemical attack there days prior that killed dozens, ABC reported.
“That’s a flawed interpretation,” said Ivanka, first daughter and assistant to the president, while on her foreign trip to Germany on the behalf of President Trump.
Ivanka’s comments come after her brother Eric Trump said in an interview with “The Daily Telegraph” that a “heartbroken and outraged” Ivanka was the influence behind the president’s decision to launch airstrikes on a Syrian Shayrat airbase.
“Ivanka is a mother of three kids and she has influence,” Eric Trump said. “I’m sure she said: ‘Listen, this is horrible stuff.’ My father will act in times like that.”
