Ivanka Trump called her father “the people’s champion, and now the people’s nominee.” She said she doesn’t have a party affiliation, like many in her age group, but believes her father is the only one who can implement real change, and that person has to come from the outside.
“When times were tough he worked harder, got better, and got stronger.”
“I’ve seen fight for his family, fight for his company and now for his country. It has been the spirit of his life and the spirit of his campaign.”
Ivanka said her dad may be famous, but not well known. She spent days as a child playing with blocks next to him at his desk building with concrete. He told her and her family there is nothing they can’t accomplish without an endearing work ethic.
“I’ve seen my father tear stories out of the newspaper of people he never met, and ask someone to find them. He would try to help them find a job or the help they needed.”
“My father not only has the strength to be president, but the kindness and the compassion.”
She said women were often a large part of all his businesses. “He’s gender neutral, and wants the best person for the job.”
Ivanka said women are the highest paid in their house by 40 percent. The biggest wage discrepancy in income is for mothers, not women. He’ll change laws to make child care affordable and accessible for all.
“Politicians talk about wage equality, but my father has made it a practice at his company for his entire career.”
“A Trump presidency will turn the economy and return the tradition of giving the next generation a chance at being better off than the one before.”
“When my father says he will make America great again, he will deliver.”
“My father always told me, if you’re going to be thinking anyway, then you might as well think big. I tell the people of America, if you have my father in your corner, he will fight for you, all the time and every time.”
“Maybe it is the developer in him. He can’t stand the sight of empty factories and empty streets. He can’t stand college graduates without jobs. Other politicians say they feel for you, my father will fight for you.”
“Politicians asked to be judged by their promises and not their results. I want you to judge my father by his results. He’s the single-most qualified person to head an $18 trillion economy.”
“This is the fighter, the doer you have chosen as your nominee. He will speak to every person of every background.”
