Watch: Ivanka Trump Laughs When Asked if ‘Lock Her Up’ Should Apply to Her Use of Private Email

Ivanka Trump is now publicly defending her use of a private email account for government business, and insists there is no correlation between her actions and those her father hammered former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for during a brutal presidential campaign.

"There's no equivalency to what my father's spoken about," the First Daughter and Advisor to the President told ABC News in an exclusive interview airing Wednesday. "There really is no equivalency," she insisted.

Trump told ABC News' Deborah Roberts that the emails are all archived on government servers, and did not contain classified information. There is no way to confirm that claim without a forensic investigation.

The contents of the emails she says include "mainly scheduling and logistics and managing the fact that I have a home life and a work life."

When asked if chants of "lock her up," an attack on Hillary Clinton and a staple of Trump campaign rallies to this day, Ivanka Trump laughed and said, "no."
