It’s been a rough week for Donald Trump, but he’s not taking it lying down. The former president is currently on trial for civil fraud, and he’s been known to lose his temper during the proceedings. But what’s really got him riled up is the fact that his daughter, Ivanka Trump, is next to take the stand.
Ivanka, 40, is scheduled to testify on Wednesday as the state’s final witness. She’s tried to avoid testifying, but a judge has ruled that she must. And that’s not sitting well with her dad.
“He’s pissed,” a source close to the Trump family told us. “He feels like it’s another move to upset him.”
The source added that Trump is also worried about the effect this will have on Ivanka. “She’s worked hard to stay out of the spotlight for the past two years,” the source said. “And now she’s being thrust back into it.”
You can’t make this shit up.

But Ivanka is no stranger to the spotlight. She’s been in the public eye since she was a teenager, and she’s used to dealing with the press and paparazzi.
“She’s tough,” another source said of Ivanka. “This isn’t her first rodeo with this stuff. She’ll do what she needs to do and go back to Miami.”

In the meantime, Trump is focusing on his own testimony. He’s been accused of lying about his financial worth to enrich himself in his business dealings. He has denied the allegations, and he’s even exploded during his testimony by declaring, “The fraud is on the court, not on me.”

Either way, the trial is sure to be a spectacle. And it’s clear that Trump is feeling the pressure. But he’s not giving up without a fight.
I’m not an Ivanka fan. (The only Trump I’m a fan of is Mary Trump)
However, I would love to see Ivanka Trump smoke her dad’s ass with truthful testimony.
She’s not going to lie. If for no other reason, she has too much to lose in her own life.
However, we’ll see how willing…
