Ivanka Trump Tells a Story About Her Father the Media Doesn’t Want You to Hear
At this year’s RNC, Republican voters got to know all of the Trump children. They were all incredibly impressive, and many wondered aloud whether or not Donald Trump Jr. would soon consider a run for office. But perhaps no one made a more impactful speech than Ivanka, Trump’s oldest daughter. In it, she described a man the media doesn’t want you to see. Specifically, she talked about her father’s habit of finding downtrodden people and lifting them up.
“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 in all that we do. He showed us that there is nothing we can’t accomplish if we marry vision and passion with an enduring work ethic.
One of my father’s greatest talents is his ability to see potential in people before they see it in themselves. It was like that with us too growing up. He taught us that potential vanishes without effort, and that like him, we each had a responsibility to work not just for ourselves, but for the betterment of the world around us. Over the years, on too many occasions to count, I saw my father tear stories out of the newspaper about people he’d never met who were facing some injustice or hardship. He’d write a note to his assistant in his signature black felt pen, and request that the person be found and invited to Trump Tower to meet with him. 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 as people so often do after having been with Donald Trump feeling that life can be great again.
Throughout my entire life I’ve witnessed his empathy and generosity towards others, especially those who are suffering. It is just his way of being in your corner when you’re down. My father not only has the strength and ability necessary to be your next president, but also the kindness and compassion that will enable him to be the leader that this country needs.
