Former Republican President Donald Trump used to fantasize about his daughter and White House senior aide Ivanka in front of his staff according to a new book by Miles Taylor, Chief of Staff at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) during the Trump administration.

Taylor claimed Trump's remarks about Ivanka were part of a broader pattern of sexism and inappropriate behavior toward women within his administration. Newsweek obtained an excerpt from Taylor's book, shedding light on the alleged comments and the reactions they elicited from others in Trump's inner circle.

According to Taylor's book Blowback: A Warning to Save Democracy from the Next Trump, Trump made sexual comments about Ivanka's body on a regular basis.

Taylor revealed:

“Aides said he talked about Ivanka Trump’s breasts, her backside, and what it might be like to have sex with her, remarks that once led [White House Chief of Staff] John Kelly to remind the President that Ivanka was his daughter."
“Afterward, Kelly retold that story to me in visible disgust. Trump, he said, was ‘a very, very evil man.’”

Indeed, Trump has a history of making sexualized comments about Ivanka.

He has described her as "voluptuous," suggested he would date her if she weren't his daughter and made remarks about her physical appearance during interviews.

A montage of comments Trump made about Ivanka over the years can be seen below.

Taylor also mentioned witnessing Trump's sexist behavior toward Kirstjen Nielsen, the former Secretary of Homeland Security. Trump would reportedly refer to Nielsen as "sweetie" and "honey" and criticize her attire.

Representatives for Trump have not yet provided a comment regarding these allegations.

Taylor, who left the Republican Party in 2020, has been vocal in his criticism of Trump and his administration. He publicly endorsed Democrat Joe Biden for the presidency, accusing Trump of exploiting the DHS for personal and political gain.

Taylor also admitted to writing an anonymous op-ed in The New York Times in 2018, claiming to be part of a group working against Trump within his own administration.

His revelations about Trump's behavior surprised no one.

These recent allegations add to the long-standing criticism and accusations of sexual misconduct against Trump.

In the past, he has been accused by multiple women of inappropriate behavior and harassment. Earlier this year, a jury found Trump liable for sexually abusing and defaming writer E. Jean Carroll in the 1990s.

Several women who worked in his administration also came forward to assert that Trump behaved inappropriately toward women within the White House.

Trump's own words, captured on the now infamous 2005 Access Hollywood tape, showed him boasting about grabbing women without consent. He justified his behavior by claiming that his celebrity status allowed him to do anything he pleased.
