‘There’s a Special Place in Hell for People Who Prey on Children’ Says Ivanka Trump, Not Donald Trump, Who’s Said Nothing


'I’ve Yet to See a Valid Explanation and I Have No Reason to Doubt the Victims’ Accounts'

Well, finally, one Trump has weighed in on the news that Roy Moore allegedly attempted to rape a 16-year old girl whose yearbook he had signed just one week earlier.

“There’s a special place in hell for people who prey on children. I’ve yet to see a valid explanation and I have no reason to doubt the victims’ accounts,” Ivanka Trump on Wednesday afternoon told the AP.

She did not call for Moore to quit the Alabama US Senate race.

Ivanka Trump's dad, President Donald Trump, not only has not said anything publicly about the Roy Moore child sexual assault allegations – as of late Wednesday afternoon there are now seven women who say Moore pursued them as teenagers, including two women alleging sexual assault, one when she was 14, and one when she was 16.

Two new women stepped forward Wednesday. One said that while he was married Moore grabbed her buttocks after intensely flirting with her. She was in his law office dealing with a custody issue. The other said when she was 17 Moore asked her out. Rebuffed, she says he told her, "I go out with girls your age all the time."

Earlier Wednesday, President Trump held a press event but walked away once it concluded, while refusing to answer any questions. It appeared all the questions reporters asked at the end, which he ignored, were about Roy Moore.

The remarks from the president's daughter, a White House advisor to the President, were not especially well-received, and seen as late. It's been over six full days since the first news of allegations against Moore were revealed.
