CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka stopped in Charlotte to pump up volunteers and supporters, reminding them that North Carolina will be crucial to her father if he is to win the White House.
It was a quick stop for Trump’s daughter who shook hands and signed campaign signs at the GOP’s Mecklenburg County headquarters off Park Road.
She did not say anything about the comments her father was recorded making where he talks about kissing and groping women.
One Trump supporter, Petra Arias, said to her that the comments don’t mean anything.
“I’m not paying attention to that,” she said as she stood next to her teenage daughter Bella who will vote for the first time and cast her vote for Trump.
Said Bella of the Trump comments, “I thought of it exactly like he said, locker room banter. Growing up in high school, there is talk like that.”
Republican congressman Robert Pittenger from Charlotte was at the rally and said he too dismissed Trump’s comments about women.
“With all due respect, what Mr. Trump said is no contrast with what Mrs. Clinton has done,” said Pittenger.
Donald Trump himself is scheduled to make a campaign stop on Thursday in Concord.
