NEW YORK — Ivanka Trump, the daughter of former President Donald Trump, said Friday she was “hurt” for her father and the country after the former president was indicted by a jury in New York on Thursday.

He also expressed his “appreciation” for the voices of the American political spectrum “expressing their support and concern”.
