Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's eldest daughter, Ivanka, reportedly urged her father's team not to promote a campaign ad she is featured in over fear that is would harm her personal brand.

According to the New York Times on Sunday, the businesswoman and former model appeared in the commercial aimed at garnering support from suburban women for her father's White House run.

The Times report noted that it had been made with the intention of appealing to women who had recoiled from Trump's salacious language. Ivanka Trump Visiting Ohel Of Lubavitcher Rebbe

Without explicitly naming the commercial in question, other outlets have pointed to an October ad in which Ivanka Trump is seen attempting to appeal to mothers.

However, she allegedly dissuaded her father's campaign from promoting the material in press releases over fears that her close link to the presidential bid would possibly damage her personal businesses.

Ivanka Trump, who converted to Orthodox Judaism before marrying husband Jared Kushner, has a namesake jewelry line and fashion line. and also serves in a senior position at her father's company the Trump Organization.

The eldest Trump daughter, 34, has recently faced calls to boycott her fashion brand due to backlash against her father.

The brash GOP nominee's campaign has been marked by controversy, particularly in regard to minority groups. The billionaire real estate magnate's latest campaign upheavals include recent sexual harassment allegations and a scandal surrounding a 2005 video in which he is heard boasting of making physical contact with women without their consent.
