Washington (CNN)If Ivanka Trump is “complicit,” as critics and even a “Saturday Night Live” perfume sketch allege, she’s not concerned.
“I don’t know what it means to be complicit, but I hope time will prove that I have done a good job and much more importantly, that my father’s administration is the success that I know it will be,” Trump told CBS News’ Gayle King in an interview taped Tuesday.
Asked by King how she feels about the accusation, Trump defended herself.
“I don’t know that the critics who may say that of me, if they found themselves in this very unique and unprecedented situation that I am now in, would do any differently than I am doing,” she said. “So I hope to make a positive impact.”
The interview, taped at her Washington home, was Trump’s first since her father, President Donald Trump, assumed office in January.
Since officially joining her father’s administration as special assistant to the President, she has slowly ramped up her public appearances, speaking last week at an event promoting young woman in STEM and discussing apprenticeships and vocational training earlier Tuesday.
