Trump responded that her father is “absolutely not” a sexist because he hired her ― his daughter ― to work for him.  “He’s absolutely not a sexist,” Trump said. “There’s no way I could be the person I am today if my father was a sexist.” She continued to defend her father, telling Borger that Trump has “40 years of history of employing women”:  I would not be one of his senior-most executives and I would not be working shoulder to shoulder with my brothers. I would be working for my brothers if at all. I think actions ultimately speak louder than words. My father has 40 years of history of employing women.  This was said about the man who once commented  that if Ivanka wasn’t his daughter, he’d probably be dating her.  From recently hiring Stephen K. Bannon,  who faced domestic violence charges in the ‘90s , as his campaign’s chief executive to receiving debate prep from accused sexual harasser Roger Ailes, along with the multitude of misogynist statements he’s made  ― it’s safe to say Donald Trump is most definitely sexist.  Hiring women doesn’t magically make you a feminist and it certainly doesn’t negate blatant sexism.  Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar , rampant xenophobe , racist , misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S. Also on HuffPost 10 Times Trump Supporters Were Blatantly Racist 10 10 Times Trump Supporters Were Blatantly Racist 1 of 10 "Put them back in the fields where they belong!" This almost two-minute clip of an unnamed man going off on a black woman during a New York City subway ride is heinous, to say the least. It's the most recent video of a racist Trump supporter to go viral. In addition to suggesting that slavery should be reinstated, he calls the woman a "worthless stupid f**king c**t!" and bellows, "Donald Trump 2016!"
