Trump told The New York Times that he and his sister hold similar views and that she’s “very proud” of him. “She said, ‘Just be yourself.’ Of course, I don’t know if that’s good advice, but she said, ‘Just be yourself and you will do well, really well’,” said the real estate mogul.

On the issue of gender equality, Trump said of Barry, “She feels that women are very smart and can be very tough and can be at least equal to men, and that women can fight very hard.”
The billionaire businessman added that his sister has absolutely no interest in speaking with inquiring reporters now that her little brother is running for president.
