GOP Convention: Ivanka Trump Introduces Her Father, the "People's Nominee"
Jul 23 2016
"This is pretty novel, other than her father trying to sell Trump Steaks himself in his prior television appearance", said Robert Kelner, a partner at the law firm Covington & Burling.
"She spoke with confidence - you had no doubt you believed her", Collins-Smith said. But she is also her father's not-so-secret weapon, one who steps into the breach at the most crucial moments. "I also know how privileged I am", she said, carefully maneuvering the topic.
"American voters are really smart and I'm confident that they will see through Ivanka Trump's statements last night to recognize Donald Trump as who he really is, and that is not a champion of women".
Trump shared stories of working alongside her father, which included a special emphasis on the women that he promoted.
"I remember him telling me when I was a little girl, 'Ivanka, if you're going to be thinking anyway, you might as well be thinking big, ' " she said at that announcement last June. "My father is a fighter", Ivanka explained.
"He's the single-most qualified person to serve as chief executive of an $18 trillion economy", she said.
"Yeah, she's really something, and what a beauty, that one".
Ivanka's been her father's biggest supporter since day one - and we mean before this presidential campaign even began.
In fact, as I was waiting for her to take the stage, her latest newsletter hit my inbox at 8:10 p.m., with the subject line "Don't sweat it".
In an expansive two-part interview with PEOPLE this week, Ivanka Trump is opening up about balancing her many businesses, raising three children with her husband Jared Kushner, and dealing with the demands of her father Donald Trump's presidential campaign.
"My father not only has the strength and ability necessary to be the next president, but also the kindness and compassion that will enable him to be the leader that this country needs", said the elegant blonde. She knows her audience so well that within minutes of her leaving the stage, photos of her at the convention were on her homepage with a description and a link: "From the Ivanka Trump collection: Dress coming soon!"
"He taught us that there is nothing we can't accomplish", she said.
She ended her speech by comparing her father to hard-working Americans.
And the Washington Post, New York magazine and Slate all pointed out that the policy positions she espoused in her speech seemed to put her closer to Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton than to her father.
Trump said sexual assault in the military is just the cost of doing business.
Many said they were surprised about what they've seen from the Trump kids, especially given their upbringing in the public eye surrounded by celebrity, a life that many offspring of famous figures struggle to overcome.
