Apparently, everyone knew Donald Trump would eventually run for President except, well, Donald Trump himself. Alternative rock band Rage Against The Machine predicted that the outspoken businessman would run for the White House in their video, "Sleep Now in the Fire," way back in 2000.
According to Entertainment Weekly on Thursday, in the clip, there's a man holding a "Donald J. Trump for President 2000" sign. Of course, Trump didn't announce his bid for the presidency until the summer of 2015.
The site also notes that back in 1999, there were whispers that Trump would consider running in the 2000 race, but it was a rumor that he shut down almost immediately.
"Do I need to be president to feel good about myself? I feel pretty good right now," he declared at the time.
Meanwhile, Trump's daughter Ivanka Trump is defending her father and his controversial comments about women, as many of his critics have been calling him a misogynist in the media.
Speaking to Fortune Magazine, Ivanka said, "Look, my father is very blunt. He's very direct. He is not gender specific in his criticism of people, and people that he doesn't particularly like or people that he does like but thinks they're wrong on a particular issue. So I don't think that he's gender-targeted at all. I wouldn't be the person I am today, I wouldn't be a high-level executive within his organization if he felt that way."
As far as how she feels about her father's campaign, Ivanka admitted that it's a "complicated" matter.
She explained, "I'm proud of him, but it's a very difficult thing to do. My father has achieved tremendous success and he's not a politician but he's changing the dialogue and disrupting the process in a very meaningful way. The level of interest and scrutiny is beyond anything you have experienced."
