Donald Trump Jr. says he is more concerned about the perceived threat posed to his sons than to his daughters in the #MeToo era.
In an interview with the Daily Mail, the father of five talked about his fears amid the sexual misconduct allegations facing President Trump’s Supreme Court justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
“I’ve got boys and I’ve got girls and when I see what’s going on now, it’s scary for all things,” Trump, 40, said.
A Daily Mail reporter then asked President Trump’s eldest son whether he feared more for his daughters or sons.
“Right now, I’d say my sons,” he said of his three boys who range in age from 5 to 9. (His two daughters are 4 and 11.)
“The other problem is that for the people who are real victims of these things, when it is so obviously political in cases like this, it really diminishes the real claims,” Trump said alongside his girlfriend, former Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle.
“It’s important in terms of doing an investigation to get the facts out there,” Guilfoyle said.
“It’s very tough 35 years later but it doesn’t mean it should be ignored. But people need to be careful to understand the politics involved, as well, and what motivations people may have,” she said, appearing to reference Ford’s allegations that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were in high school in 1982.
Kavanaugh has denied the accusation.
