(TruthAndLiberty.com) – Ivanka Trump broke her silence on her father’s conviction in a new podcast interview.

On an episode of the “Lex Fridman Podcast,” released Tuesday, Ivanka Trump, the former President’s daughter and one-time senior adviser, weighed in on his conviction and recent legal battles.

She noted that “On a human level,” the former President is her father who she “love[s]… very much,” and therefore made his conviction a “painful experience.”

Ivanka added that she wished “it didn’t have to be this way.”

Fridman also shared his hope that amid the legal trouble, love wins, “It usually does,” Ivanka replied.

Trump was convicted on 34 felony counts of falsifying business records in his hush-money case and is still facing a litany of criminal indictments. However, Trump could receive a welcome break from prosecution after the Supreme Court ruled in his favor on Monday by agreeing that Presidents have broad immunity from prosecution stemming from official acts.

The Supreme Court’s ruling ultimately sent the case about Trump’s actions on January 6, 2021, back to a lower court, delaying trial until after Election Day.

Trump’s sentencing in the hush money case, initially scheduled for July 11, has also been delayed until September as Judge Juan Merchan determines whether SCOTUS’s ruling would change the guilty verdict.

Ivanka Trump, who hasn’t been active in her father’s campaign trail this time, also doused hopes she would return to politics, stating she wants to spend time raising her kids, and noted there is “a lot of darkness” in politics.
