Ivanka Trump highlighted promises she said were made and kept to workers and families by President Donald Trump as she refereed to him as the “People’s President” Thursday during the final night of the Republican National Convention.
“Four years ago, I introduced you to a builder, an entrepreneur, an outsider and the people’s nominee for President of the United States,” the first daughter explained during her speech at on the front lawn of the White House. (RELATED: Ivanka Turns Heads In Gorgeous Yellow Plaid Skirt Suit)

Ivanka continued, “He is our Commander-in-Chief, champion of the American worker, defender of common sense, and our voice for the forgotten men and women of this country. He is our president and my father, Donald J. Trump.”(RELATED: Melania Stuns In Pale-Pink Dress At Reception During UN General Assembly [PHOTOS])
Ivanka then said she wanted to tell Americans about the man “who is fighting for you from morning to night” when the microphones and cameras are off.
“But Donald Trump did not come to Washington to win praise from the beltway elites,” the first daughter explained. “Donald Trump came to Washington for one reason, and one reason alone: To Make America Great Again!”
“My father has strong convictions,” she added. “He knows what he believes, and says what he thinks. Whether you agree with him or not, you always know where he stands. I recognize that my dad’s communication style is not to everyone’s taste. And I know his tweets can feel a bit … unfiltered. But the results speak for themselves.”
Ivanka continued, “Four years ago, I told you my father would focus on making childcare affordable and accessible.”
She went on to explain how “Republican tax cuts, in 2019 alone, our child tax credit put over $2,000 dollars into the pockets of 40 million American families.”
“Democrat politicians recently introduced a plan to increase the child tax credit, yet when I was fighting less than three years ago, at the president’s direction, to get Congress to double the child tax credit, not a single Democrat voted to pass the law — we got it done anyway,” the first daughter added.
Ivanka continued, “Since the day he took the oath of office, I’ve watched my father take on the failed policies of the past and do what no other leader has done before.”
