She did an interview with a reporter from Cosmopolitan magazine. The Hill reports on what happened:
Ivanka Trump accused a Cosmopolitan magazine reporter of asking "negative" questions in a tense interview about her father's new child care and maternity leave policy.
Cosmopolitan reporter Prachi Gupta appeared to rattle the 34-year-old daughter of Donald Trump when she asked her in a phone interview to clarify whether his plan would address paternity leave or cover leave for gay couples when the parents are both men.
“So it's meant to benefit, whether it's in same-sex marriages as well, to benefit the mother who has given birth to the child if they have legal married status under the tax code,” Ivanka Trump said.I should add that Ivanka accusing the reporter of “a lot of negativity” is a pretty good social justice warrior comeback. Skip the logic and just hurl charges of emotional hurt. Give her time and Ivanka could end up being worse than Hillary.
"Well, what about gay couples, where both partners are men?" Gupta asked.
Ivanka responded that the “intention” of her father’s plan was to “help mothers in recovery in the immediate aftermath of childbirth.”
The reporter did not let up, once again asking Ivanka to clarify how the plan would cover gay couples “where the two parents are both men.” Gupta asked if the policy would not allow leave for fathers “because they don’t need to recover for anything?”
"Well, those are your words, not mine," Trump responded, laughing, according to Cosmopolitan. "The plan, right now, is focusing on mothers, whether they be in same-sex marriages or not.”
Ivanka then accused the reporter of putting “a lot of negativity” in to her questions after Gupta cited a 2004 NBC interview during which Trump said pregnancy is “inconvenient” for employers and called Trump's plan "surprising."
CNN has more on what went down:
Ivanka Trump cut short an interview with Cosmopolitan published Wednesday after being asked about some of Donald Trump's past comments about childcare and maternity leave...
"So I think that you have a lot of negativity in these questions," Ivanka Trump said, according to Cosmopolitan's transcript. "So I don't know how useful it is to spend too much time with you on this, if you're going to make a comment like that."...
She said the question was "an unfair characterization of his track record and his support of professional women."
Gupta pressed on: "I would like to say that I'm sorry the questions -- you're finding them negative, but it is relevant that a presidential candidate made those comments. So I'm just following up."
"Well, you said he made those comments. I don't know that he said those comments," Trump said.
Presented with the source of her father's quote -- an NBC interview in 2004 -- Trump shot back that "there's plenty of time for you to editorialize around this," and again pitched the campaign's new childcare policy.
"I hope that regardless of what your political viewpoint is, this should be celebrated," she added.
When Gupta pivoted to asking Trump about how Donald Trump proposed to pay for some of his most expensive policy proposals -- such as the border wall with Mexico, infrastructure investment, and increased defense spending -- Trump said that the policies would all be paid for as a result of the Trump campaign's forthcoming tax reform plan.
Shortly thereafter, she cut the interview off.
"I'm going to jump off -- I have to run. I apologize," Trump said.
