Donald Trump Jr. Says #MeToo Movement Scarier for Sons Than Daughters

Donald Trump Jr. said he feared more for his sons than his daughters amid the #MeToo movement and last week's conflicting testimonies from Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford.

Trump Jr. and his girlfriend, former Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle, spoke with Daily Mail TV in Montana last week, saying how they believed he-said–she-said sexual misconduct claims could derail people's lives.

The father of five children (two daughters and three sons), said it was more "scary" right now to watch his boys grow up during the era of #MeToo. Both Guilfoyle and Trump warned of how Washington politics may have skewed the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings on Kavanaugh's Supreme Court confirmation.

'I've got boys, and I've got girls. And when I see what's going on right now, it's scary," Trump Jr. told Daily Mail TV. When pressed about whom he feared for more in the wake of the #MeToo movement's rise, he said, "Right now, I'd say my sons."

The couple gave their first joint interview during a Montana campaign swing for Republican U.S. Senate candidate Matt Rosendale in his challenge against Democratic Senator Jon Tester in the November midterm election. The president's son attended a Rosendale rally followed by a 90-minute trip to a gun range for target shooting.

Trump Jr. and Guilfoyle have been together since April, just weeks after Trump Jr.'s wife of 12 years, and the mother of his children, Vanessa Trump, filed for an uncontested divorce.

Guilfoyle said she believed it was important "to get the facts out there and find out" about such sexual misconduct allegations, even if "it's very tough 35years later... It doesn't mean it should be ignored." But she also said that people should be "careful to understand" how politics could taint such an investigation.

Trump Jr. said he believed Kavanaugh's version of two dueling narratives presented to the Senate Judiciary Committee last Thursday, which placed a seven-day delay on the final Senate floor vote as the FBI launched an investigation. Trump Jr. said that regardless of whether Kavanaugh is confrimed to the High Court or, the "real victims" of sexual misconduct were the ones who should receive people's concern.

"For the people who are real victims of these things, when it is so obviously political in cases like this," he said, "it really diminishes the real claims."
