First daughter Ivanka Trump got more than she feels she bargained for when her father won the presidential election.

“It is hard,” she said. “There’s a level of viciousness that I was not expecting. I wasn’t expecting the intensity of this experience, but this isn’t supposed to be easy.”

Trump also said, “I think some of the distractions and some of the ferocity, I was a little blindsided by on a personal level.”

Critics say the level of vitriol should come as no surprise considering the president's behavior.
