1. SOUNDBITE (English) Donald Trump, US President:
"Just so you understand, early on and for a little period of time, Ivanka did some e-mails. They weren't classified like Hillary Clinton. They weren't deleted like Hillary Clinton who deleted 33 - she wasn't hiring - she wasn't doing anything to hide her e-mails. I looked at it just very briefly today and the presidential records, they're all in presidential records. There was no hiding. There was no deleting like Hillary Clinton did. There was no servers in the basement like Hillary Clinton had. You're talking about a whole different, you're talking about all fake news. So what Ivanka did, it's all in the presidential records. Everything is there. There was no deletion, there was no nothing. What it is is a false story. Hillary Clinton deleted 33,000 e-mails. She had a server in the basement. That's the real story."

"Ivanka can handle herself, Ivanka can handle herself. These are all in the historical records.There was no deletion whatsoever, unlike Hillary Clinton who deleted 33-thousand emails. Unlike Hillary Clinton who had a server in the basement. Ivanka didn't. This was just early on, when she came in, these calls were not classified, unlike Hillary Clinton's calls which were classified. And it's all fake news."
President Donald Trump defended his daughter, Ivanka Trump, over revelations she used a private email account for work in the White House.
Speaking to reporters as he departed for Mar-a-Lago for the Thanksgiving holiday, the president, who has spent years railing against Hillary Clinton's use of private email for public business while secretary of state, sought to downplay — and differentiate — his daughter's email use from his former opponent's.
"They aren't classified like Hillary Clinton. They weren't deleted like Hillary Clinton," Trump said, adding: "What Ivanka did, it's all in the presidential records. Everything is there."
