Ivanka Trump defended her use of a private email account while working in her father's White House a year ago and dismissed comparisons between her situation and that of Hillary Clinton during a television interview broadcast Wednesday.

"All of my emails that relate to any form of government work - which was mainly scheduling and logistics and managing the fact that I have a home life and a work life - are all part of the public record".

President Trump, a Republican, repeatedly criticized Clinton during the 2016 presidential election campaign over her use of personal email and a private server while she was USA secretary of state, vowing to investigate her and spurring cries of "lock her up" among his supporters.

Several audience members said they hoped Hillary Clinton would consider another run at the presidency, despite her loss to Donald Trump in the 2016 election.

They set up personal emails with the domain "ijkfamily.com" through a Microsoft system in December 2016, after Trump won the presidency and the couple was preparing to move to Washington D.C.

Ivanka Trump said "there really is no equivalency" between the official government emails she made from a private account and those made by Hillary Clinton.

'All of my emails are stored and preserved.

"And we have a president and those closest to him who have their own personal commercial interests", she added.

Ivanka said commingling personal and government material wasn't strictly prohibited, citing legal advice about an easy and common way to remedy it.
