Ivanka Trump defended her use of a private email account

Ivanka Trump’s interview with ABC News clearly indicates she is the guardian of ensuring which emails are to be considered government business versus personal business. Unfortunately, she possesses a profound degree of ignorance when it comes to government ethics and the necessary oversight when it comes to public business.

Just this year, Ivanka received patents from China that coincided with her father’s announced a U-turn in policy on ZTE, a Chinese telecoms firm that has admitted breaking US sanctions on Iran and North Korea.

“All of my emails are stored and preserved. There were no deletions,” President Donald Trump’s elder daughter and adviser told ABC News in an interview broadcast Wednesday. “There is no restriction of using personal email,” she said. “In fact, we’re instructed that if we receive an email to our personal account that could relate to government work, you simply just forward it to your government account so it can be archived.”
