Samantha Bee Digs Up Awkward Old Clip Of Ivanka Trump Talking About Her Father's Debt

Donald Trump's daughter tells an anecdote about the president talking about a homeless person in the footage.

Samantha Bee on Wednesday aired old footage of Ivanka Trump recalling how her father, President Donald Trump, once used a person who was homeless to illustrate the high amount of debt he owed.

The host of “Full Frontal” broadcast the clip from the 2003 documentary “Born Rich” during a segment in which she spotlighted a New York Times report that Trump accumulated almost $1.2 billion in business losses from 1985 to 1994.

Ivanka Trump, now a senior White House adviser to the president, said in the video:

I remember once my father and I were walking down Fifth Avenue and there was a homeless person sitting right outside of Trump Tower and I remember my father pointing to him and saying, ‘You know, that guy has $8 billion more than me,’ because he was in such extreme debt at that point, you know?

“And that is why it was OK for him to take that man’s change cup,” Bee later joked.

 “Look, the only thing that Donald Trump really had going for him as a candidate was that he was supposed to be a great businessman,” Bee added. “Now we know that not only is he a bad businessman, he is one of the worst in American history.”
