She sought to stand in solidarity with the campaign, however, users on Twitter were quick to remind her of her fathers own battle with sexual assault accusers and the cloud that still hangs over the white house as he denies and settles a number of the accusations.

Alyssa Milano who is the star of the US series Charmed and Who’s the Boss?, made a suggestion to Ivanka, asking her to turn her words on Twitter to some financial support to the campaign.
Great! You can make a lofty donation to the Time's Up Legal Defense Fund that is available to support your father's accusers.https://t.co/A8HCVa715v
