Ivanka Trump suggested a clarification of her father Donald Trump's comments last summer on Mexicans being "rapists."
However, the campaign left it unused, according to Buzfeed News.
"I had suggested a clarification because I felt that his comments were being misconstrued," Ivanka Trump said during a deposition earlier this year. "Not a retraction. I don't think that's my place.
"I drafted something for myself, but — so I wrote something down. But it was — yeah. But it was not used," she added.
The deposition by Trump's daughter is part of a lawsuit between a chef who pulled out of his new Washington, D.C., hotel property following his comments.
When Donald Trump announced his presidential campaign in June 2015, he said, "When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best... They're sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems with us. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people."
In her deposition, Ivanka Trump said: "His statements were mischaracterized as being a categorical attack on Hispanics… And I felt that it was very important that he clarified the fact that that was not the case. He had not said that. He had not attacked Hispanic people. But that was the immediate narrative that had been spun."
New York Magazine had first reported in August 2015 that Ivanka Trump had drafted statements to walk back her father's comments, but a spokesperson declined to comment at that time.
In the deposition, Trump was asked to share what her statement said: "It said that I — it said — basically I was playing around with the idea of the fact that the media was spinning what he said to be about Hispanic people generally, as opposed to illegal immigrants, which he subsequently clarified on his own in countless interview. And the fact that my father has a tremendous relationship with people of Hispanic descent."
