The president of the United States has admitted that his daughters Ivanka and Lara are still “kids” and will remain so even as they’re grown.
Trump and his daughter Lara are both expected to attend the White House Easter Egg Roll on Monday, but in a brief interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN), the president said that the couple is still a “mom and a dad” and that he wants his children to be able to grow up in a similar manner to him.
“They are still young.
They are still children.
They have so much to learn,” Trump said in the interview.”
But they are grown.
They’ve got grandchildren and great-grandchildren and great great-great-grandkids, and they’re going to be fine.”
He added that the children “can have a great time” with the Easter eggs, but they have “to grow up a little bit” as adults.
“It is a very difficult time for the kids.
It’s very difficult,” Trump added.”
The kids are not as mature as they could be.
They’re still young, and the maturity level of the kids is a lot lower than the maturity of the adults.
So, I mean, they are still kids.
They should be kids, and I am very proud of them.”
Trump has been in the spotlight since he was elected president in November, with his eldest daughter Ivanka Trump leading the way on a number of issues including trade deals, abortion rights and climate change.
Trump’s daughters, both of whom were born in the United Kingdom and have lived in the White Bank, New York, area for most of their lives, have also been a source of controversy.
The president, who is also the CEO of the Trump Organization, said in January that Ivanka and her family were “not working very hard” as the couple were in the US and the country was “not going very well”.
The president’s comments have also sparked outrage among abortion rights supporters, including in California where the state Supreme Court struck down a law that required women to receive ultrasounds before having an abortion.
“Trump’s daughter Ivanka has taken on the mantle of her father’s oldest daughter, and it’s time she stepped aside,” said Sarah Kendzior, director of the anti-abortion group Susan B. Anthony List, in a statement.
“In doing so, she’s putting her daughters and herself in a position where they’ll be more vulnerable to being bullied by her father-in-law and the White, Christian Coalition.”
