Transcript for Ivanka Trump Verbally Confronted on Flight
There was a confrontation on a jetblue passenger -- wean a jetblue passenger and ivanka Trump who was traveling with her husband and children on a plane. The man was removed from the flight after witnesses said he attacked her with sharp words. ABC's Cecilia Vega is here with the story. Good morning, Cecilia. Reporter: Hey, Michael. You know this, Ivanka Trump is expected to play a powerful role in her father's admission and witnesses say he was not happy to be on that commercial flight with the trump family and say he doesn't like her father's politics and he certainly let her know. Ivanka Trump's family vacation to Hawaii turning into a frightening moment on a jetblue flight. Her husband and children there too when aides say a fellow passenger began yelling at her. He was upset. He walked on as soon as he saw her he started shaking. He was visibly shaking. Reporter: Witnesses say the man told the future first daughter that her father is ruining the country. A college professor tweeting that his husband is the man who chased down ivanka and Jared Kushner to, quote, harass them and that jetblue kicked us off a flight when a flight attendant overheard my husband expressing displeasure about flying with trumps. She was calm. She was trying to distract her kids and was really calm so, yeah, it was -- she handled it really well. He was being rude and inconsider at. Reporter: Secret service traveling with the family did not intervene but flight attendants did. Jetblue saying in a statement the decision to remove a customer from a flight is not taken lightly. If the crew determines that a customer is causing conflict on the aircraft, the customer will be asked to deplane. After a layover in San Francisco, ivanka and family were reportedly transferred to a private plane and on their way. Yeah, that private plane was reportedly also a preplanned trip, not a result of what happened on the jetblue flight but, guys, Ivanka Trump flies coach, who knew? A lot of people were surprised by that but after this incident you think it's something she'll continue to do? I wonder if she'll probably be flying rieft a lot more. She was with a big group of family members, cousins and things like that so perhaps they all just booked a big block of tickets. Some plan way in advance. Not in my world. I'm barely making a flight home to San Francisco tonight, I think. I'm surprised dad didn't give her trump force one to avoid all of this. Good luck getting home.
