When Samantha Bee used vulgarity last month to describe his eldest daughter, President Trump proposed "no talent" against the comedian and asked why she had not been fired  White Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the house spokeswoman, described Bee's language as "abominable and vicious" and said that her "disgusting comments and her show were not suitable for broadcasting."
Ivanka Trump was silent.
During a television interview on Friday morning, she sought to explain why.
"I've made my decision and a long time ago I made a conscientious decision that I would not plunge into the fight, and that means I'll absorb the body punches coming at me," Trump told host Maria Bartiromo performing at the Fox Business Network.
"It is important to me to focus on the task that serves the American people and uses this moment in my life to advance an agenda. I believe deeply and feel very lucky to be able to work on it," added Trump, who acts as White House Advisor.
While being part of her "Full Frontal" show on TBS last month, Bee aimed at Trump, to tweet a photo of herself with her younger son. At the same time, there were reports that the US government had lost almost 1,500 migrant children last year.
"You know, Ivanka, that's a nice photo of you and your child," Bee said. "Let me just say, one mother to another, do something about your father's immigration practices, you fickless c — he listens to you."
Bee apologized later, saying her use of vulgarity was "inappropriate and inexcusable "and she" crossed a border ".
During Friday's broadcast on Fox Business, Trump also acknowledged that she had voted in favor of her father reversing the policies of his government that separates migrant families on the border.
"Of course I have a very strong opinion on this issue," Trump said when asked by Bartiromo if she had advised the President on this issue before issuing an executive order last week.
Ivanka Trump was among the Network's managing guests on Friday, explaining the importance of the GOP tax bill signed six months ago by the President.
She said the tax cuts and other administrative guidelines had served to "truly free the animal spirits of the economy".
