Transcript for Ivanka Trump Speaks of Her Father's Compassionate Side
Good evening. One year ago I introduce my father when he declared his candidacy. In his own way and through his own sheer force of will he sacrifice greatly to enter the political arena as an outsider. And he prevailed. Against a field of sixteen. Very talented competitors. Okay. More here Donald Trump has been that the people's champion. And denying. He is the keep. Not many. Like many of my fellow millennia else I do not consider myself categorically. Republican or Democrat. More than party affiliation I vote based on what I believe is right for my Sam land and for my country. Sometimes it's a tough choice. That is not the case this time. As the proud daughter of your nominees. I am here to tell you that this is the moment. And Donald Trump is the person to make America great again. Now. Really change the kind we have not seen in decades is only going to come from outside the system. And it's only going to come from a man who spent his entire life. Doing what others said could not be done. My father is a fighter. When the primaries got tough and they weren't stuck he did what any great leader does. He dug deeper. Worked harder. Got better and became stronger. And. I'm seeing inside furnace Sam lane. I have seen him site for his employees. I have seen him fight for his company and now. I am seeing him site for our country. It's been a story and is lying. And more reason. Laying the spirit of his campaign. It's also a prelude to reaching the goal that unites us Saul. When this party and better still this country. Knows what it is like to win again. If it's possible to these payments and yet not really well known. That describes the father who raised me. In the same office in trump tower where we now work together. I remember playing on the floor or by my father's desk. Constructing miniature buildings with Legos and erector sets while he did the same with concrete stealing last. My father taught my siblings and me the importance of positive values and a strong ethical compass. He showed us how to be resilient. How to deal with challenges. And how to strive for excellence and all that we do. He taught us that there is nothing we cannot accomplish if we may away. Vision and passion with an enduring work ethic. My father's greatest talents. This is ability to see potential in people. Before they see it in themselves. It was like that for us he's growing up. He taught us that potential vanishes into nothing without effort. And that light cam we each had a responsibility. To work not just for ourselves but for the betterment of the world around us. Okay. Over thirty years on too many patients account. I saw my father terror stories out of the newspaper. About people whom he had never met who are facing some injustice or hardship. He'd reading no to his assistant and a signature black felt tip pen and her quest that the person be found and invited to trump tower to meet with them. He would talk to them and then draw upon his extensive network to find them a job or get them a break. And they would leave his office says people so often do after having been with Donald Trump. Feeling that life could be great again. Throughout my entire life I have witnessed is and could see and generosity towards others especially those who are suffering. It is jest his way of being in your corner when you're down. My father not only has the strength and ability necessary to be our next president. But also the kindness and compassion that will enable him to be the leader that this country needs. You. My father have a sense of fairness that touches every conviction he is holt. I worked alongside of him for now are than a decade now at the Trump Organization. And I've seen how he operates as a leader making important decisions. That shape careers and that change lives. I learned a lot about the world from walking construction jobs by a side. When run properly construction sites are true meritocracy is. Confidence. In the building trades is easy to spot. And incompetence is impossible to hide. These sites are also incredible melting pots. Gathering people from all walks of life. And uniting them to work towards a single mission. There are always being in that men of all backgrounds and admit to seize on my father's job sites. And long before it was commonplace. You also saw women. And. My father values talents. He recognizes real knowledge and skill when he finds it he is colorblind. And gender neutral. Pete I here's the best person for the job period. Morris promises. No matter how visionary they sound will only get you so far. In our business you're not a builder unless you've got a building to show for it. Or in my father's case city sky lines. Most people strive their entire. Lives to achieved great success in a single industry. My father has succeeded in many on the highest level and on a global scale. What other reasons he has thrived as an entrepreneur or is because he listens to every one. Millionaire executives don't usually ask the people doing the work for their opinion of the war. My father is an exception. On every one of this projects you'll see him talking to the super the painter the engineers electricians. Hill asked them for their feedback if they think something should be done differently or could be done better. When Donald Trump is in charge of all that counts is ability effort and excellence. And. This is long been the philosophy at the Trump Organization. At my father's company they're more female than male executives. Winning an arcane eat poorly for the work that we do not only. She hasn't learned not sending. Women rappers and 46%. Of the total US labor force and 40% of American households have female primary breadwinners. In 2014. Women made 83 cents for every dollar earned by a man. Seem women without children earned 94 cents for each dollar earned by and then where is married mothers made only 77 cents. As creatures as researchers have noted. Gender is no longer the factor creating the greatest wage discrepancy in this country motherhood it is. As president my father will change the labor laws that were put into place at a time when women were not a significant portion of the workforce. And he will focus on making quality child care affordable. And accessible for all. As a mother myself up thirty young children. I know how hard it is to work while raising a Sam lane. And I also know that I'm far more fortunate than most. American families need release. Policies that allow women with children to drive should not be novelty is they should be the norm. Politicians talk about wage equality but my father has made it a practice as it and his company. Throughout his entire career. He will fight. Very equal pay for equal work. And I will fight for this to you right alongside of him. Americans today need an economy that permits people to rise again. A trump presidency will turn the economy around and restore the great American tradition of giving each new generation hope. For brighter opportunities. Than those of the generation that came before. In Donald Trump you have a candidate who knows the difference between wanting something done and making it happen. When my father says that he won't fill that's our keep an eye on the sky line. Laura is Laura soaring structure will appear usually record setting in a tight an iconic and its design. Real people are hired to do real work. Vision becomes reality. When I saw there says that he will make America great again he will deliver. We haven't chance this year tree claim our heritage as a country that dreams big and makes the impossible happened. Fortunate laying Donald Trump is incapable of thinking small. When I was a child. My father always told me you bunk then you're going to be thinking any way you might as well think big. As president my father looks take on the golden were these sites. You'll be unafraid to set lofty goals and he will be relentless in his determination to achieve them. Tip keep all over America I say. When you have my father in your corner you will never again have to worry about being let down. He will fight for you. All time all the way. Every time. Navy it's the developer and hand. But Donald Trump cannot stand to see and teeming streets and boarded up factories. He can bear the injustice of college graduates who are crippled by student debt. And mothers who can't afford the cost of the child care required to return to work to better the lives of their families. Other politicians see these hardships. CD on fairness of at all and they say I feel for you. Only my father will say all fight for you. Am. I. A hard working men and women of this country identify with my father he is top and he is persevering he is honest and he Israel. He's an optimistic. And he's a relentless believer in America and all of her potential. He loves his family and he loves his country with his heart and his soul. Politicians asked to be judged by their promises. Not their results. I ask you to judge my father by his results. Judge Susan values diagnoses instilled in his children. Judges competency by the towers he's built the company sees founded and it tens of thousands of jobs he's created. Hughes' single most qualified person to serve as chief executive of an eighteen trillion dollar economy. Yeah. My father. Call on the said that sing write this people from all steers the industry and votes cited the I'll. A new set of thinkers to face our country's existing and future problems with fresh perspective and brave new solutions. Come January 17. All things will be possible again we can hope.
