President Donald Trump on Friday reacted to the Jan. 6 committee's release of testimony from his daughter Ivanka in which she appeared to reject her father's narrative alleging mass voter fraud affected the outcome of the 2020 presidential election.

The Jan. 6 committee in House on Thursday aired a primetime hearing of its investigation into the events that led to to the Capitol riot during which protesters breached the Capitol building as Congress worked to certify the presidential election results.

The committee aired footage of her testimony in which she said she accepted then-Attorney General Bill Barr's refutation of the voter fraud narrative. “I respect Attorney General Barr, so I accepted what he was said," the younger Trump said, per The Hill.

The former president on Friday attempted to explain the disunity within his family on the issue of the 2020 presidential election's outcome, saying his daughter was not privy to the fraud review and thus didn't get the full story.

"Ivanka Trump was not involved in looking at, or studying, Election results. She had long since checked out and was, in my opinion, only trying to be respectful to Bill Barr and his position as Attorney General (he sucked!)," Trump wrote on Truth Social.

Ivanka is the first member of the Trump family to show any sign of disunity with the former president on election fraud.
