Donald Trump was branded “nauseating” and “creepy” after he referred to his daughter Ivanka as “honey” during a speech in North Dakota.
The US president was delivering a speech at a tax reform event when he invited his daughter up on stage, calling her “honey” as he told how she was desperate to visit the US state alongside him on Wednesday.
He told crowds he liked of the way Ivanka called him “daddy” when the 35-year-old businesswoman asked to join him for the trip.
Inviting his daughter up on stage, Mr Trump said: “Sometimes they’ll say he can’t be that bad of a guy – look at Ivanka. Come on up, honey. She’s so good.
“She wanted to make the trip. She said, ‘Daddy, can I go with you?’ I like that.”
Numerous people took to social media to express their disgust at the “nauseating” remarks, with others posting humorous memes mocking the pair.
One Twitter user, known only as Ms Praline, said: “Okay, I’m officially creeped out.”
Cam Fentriss posted on Twitter: “This is a really pathetic travelling lounge act. Routine is lame and stale.”
