Donald Trump’s father, Fred Trump, has denied that his children were abusive in their upbringing, but in a recent interview with ABC News, Fred said he was aware of his children’s history.
The elder Trump has faced allegations of sexual misconduct from former business partners, including former Miss Universe Alicia Machado, and his mother has been accused of domestic violence.
Trump told ABC News’ Martha Raddatz that his father is a great dad.
“He’s a great father, I love him dearly,” Trump said.
“I don’t have a problem with it, because he’s a very good father.
And he’s been through a lot, and he’s done a lot of good things.””
He was a very great dad, and I don’t like to say bad things about him, but he was a great daddy.
So that’s what he’s supposed to do.”
