Ex-Trump exec to critics: Trump always treated me and other women appropriately

Why this former employee backs Trump

With Donald Trump under fire for what critics consider demeaning and sexist comments toward women, a former Trump International vice president, told CNBC on Monday that she supports the Republican presidential nominee, even though she describes herself as a liberal.

"During my tenure there, I had never witnessed Mr. Trump being inappropriate to me or any other women," said real estate veteran Senada Adzem, who worked at Trump International as a marketing vice president from 2003 to 2007.

"I wanted to state that even though I'm liberal in my political views that as former high-ranking female executive at Trump International, he was very fair," Adzem said on "Squawk Box."

Adzem, an immigrant from Bosnia, said the reason she's backing Trump is because the billionaire businessman gets results, which she feels is an important quality for the next U.S. president.

"I do believe in the American democratic process because we have it way better here than where I grew up in [the] former Yugoslavia," added Adzem, currently a sales director at real estate firm Douglas Elliman.

During her time at Trump International, Adzem said she worked directly with Trump, as well as his children, Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr.
