There has been plenty of attention on the Trump family as the New York fraud trial against Donald Trump and his company has unfolded. That attention extended to Ivanka Trump’s arrival at the courthouse to testify about what she knew and didn’t know about the Trump company’s fraudulent statements on financial documents.
While Ivanka has grown up with plenty of attention as a socialite and member of the Trump family, the attention she got as she arrived from the small crowd that had gathered in New York may not have been the kind of attention she wanted or was used to.
“Exiting her car as she walked toward the courthouse,” Jess Ponce III said, “[Ivanka] did her best not to pay attention to the crowd. But she couldn’t help but look up a few times as they chanted. She did not quite know how to respond. She was tense and awkward. In moments where she would normally wave or say hello to the crowd, she kept looking forward.”
Considering that some in the crowd were chanting, “crime family” as Ivanka made her way into the New York courthouse, it would make sense that Ivanka wouldn’t want to say anything.
