Ivanka Trump Softens Her Father's Image and Courts Female Voters at RNC Convention

Cleveland, OH - After much anticipation, Ivanka Trump finally made her big entrance onto the RNC convention stage Thursday night and made her best case for why her father, Republican nominee Donald Trump, should be President of the United States of America.

"I have seen him fight for his family, I have seen him fight for his employees, I have seen him fight for his company and now, he's fighting for this country," Ivanka said, giving detailed examples of working with her father side by side on major projects. "He showed us how to be resilient, how to deal with challenges and how to strive for excellence in everything we do."

"My father has a sense of fairness that touches every convictions hes holds," she continued. "When Donald Trump is in charge, all that counts is ability, effort and excellence."

But Ivanka didn't simply stick to promoting her father and his experience, she dove into public policy in an effort to court female voters. 

"At my father's company, there are more female executives than male executives. They are paid equally to men for the work that they do. And when a woman becomes a mother, she is supported, not shut out," she said. "He is color-blind and gender neutral. He hires the best person for the job, period." 

"Politicians talk about wage equality...my father made a practice for his entire career," she continued.

During her remarks, Ivanka promised under a Trump administration, labor laws will be changed and implemented to make childcare affordable.
