• Donald and Ivanka Trump's relationship goes up the line of appropriate father-daughter behavior
  • Donald Trump loves his daughter Ivanka more than his wife Melania
  • Donald Trump said he would date Ivanka if she were not his daughter

Donald Trump and Ivanka Trump's relationship crosses the line of appropriate father-daughter behavior.

The president and the first daughter are very close that some feel as though Trump loves his daughter more than his wife. The POTUS also triggered the speculations with the way he treats and compliments his daughter.

According to Omarosa Manigault Newman’s book entitled “Unhinged,” Trump and Ivanka’s relationship is over the line of what’s appropriate for a father and a daughter.

“For as long as I’d known [Donald] Trump, I’d observed the way he hugs, touches, and kisses Ivanka; the way she calls him Daddy. In my opinion, based on my observations, their relationship goes up to the line of appropriate father/daughter behavior and jumps right over it. I believe he covets his daughter,” Newman wrote.

“It’s uncomfortable to watch them carry on, especially during that season of ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ when she was so young. For her part, she knows she’s Daddy’s little girl and I believe she exploits his fixation with her to get her way.”

Trump has made sexually suggestive statements about Ivanka. In one interview, Trump asked if it was wrong to be “more sexually attracted to your own daughter than your wife?” Many were convinced that he was referring to his then-teenage daughter Ivanka who was only 13 years old at the time. Also, when the father and daughter appeared on “Wendy” together they were asked what’s the favorite thing they have in common.

The first daughter answered, “Either real estate or golf.” However, Trump remarked said, “I was going to say sex, but I can’t relate that to her.” In another appearance he complimented Ivanka’s “very nice figure” and added that he would be dating her if she were not his daughter.

Ivanka and Trump’s relationship also sparked rumors that he loves his daughter more than his wife Melania Trump. When the POTUS delivered his victory speech in February, he called Ivanka, who joined him on stage, and they hugged and kissed.

After that, Trump called out Melania and embraced her. However, many felt that it was not a “real hug,” which prompted online users to compare Trump’s relationship with his wife and daughter.

“He loves his daughter/wife more then his wife. Then he went on to complain how wives behave when husband is dying. Trump projecting again his inner feelings that are abnormal about his daughter. Creepy,” one wrote on Twitter.
