Ivanka Trump is choosing not to be affected by the recent boycotts against her brand.
During George Stephanopoulos' ABC News interview with the Trump family on Thursday, the 34-year-old businesswoman spoke about those boycotting her fashion line, saying that people are free to do as they please.
"The beauty of America is that people can do what they like," she explained, "but I prefer to talk to the millions, tens of millions of American women, who are inspired by the brand and the message that I've created."
After the release earlier this month of a 2005 tape in which her father can be heard making lewd comments about the opposite sex, a group of women began boycotting Ivanka's fashion line and encouraging others to do the same, using the hashtag #GrabYourWallet on social media.
While it's too early to tell whether these boycotts have had a real effect on sales of Ivanka's brand -- which is sold at Macy's, Nordstrom, Amazon, Marshalls, Zappos and more -- a recent national survey by Fortune revealed that less than one in four women said they would buy a product with an Ivanka Trump label.
"My advocacy of women, trying to empower them in all aspects of their life, started long before this presidential campaign did," Ivanka continued, saying that she's still "very proud" of her father regardless of the remarks he made in the video. "I've never politicized that message. People who are seeking to politicize it because they disagree with the politics of my father -- there's nothing I can do to change that."
