Ivanka Trump is 100% behind her father's run for president in 2016.
Ivanka Trump said recently, before Donald Trump announced his bid, that she would support him.
In an interview for CNBC's Closing Bell, Ivanka Trump declared, "I would support him and encourage him wholeheartedly."
She added, "I have the unique perspective of being by his side every day and understanding how incredibly capable and just want an amazing visionary he is. As a citizen, it would be amazing if he makes that decision."
Well, on Tuesday, Ivanka Trump got her wish. Donald Trump threw in his hat to make the 12th presidential contender for the Republican party.
He made his announcement Trump style, with much fanfare.
Surely Ivanka Trump was proud of the Donald's rambling speech, which included some major boasting, like, "This is beyond anybody’s expectations. There’s been no crowd like this. And, I can tell, some of the candidates, they went in. They didn’t know the air-conditioner didn’t work. They sweated like dogs. They didn’t know the room was too big, because they didn’t have anybody there."
He continued of his opponents, "How are they going to beat ISIS? I don’t think it’s going to happen. Our country is in serious trouble. We don’t have victories anymore. We used to have victories, but we don’t have them. When was the last time anybody saw us beating, let’s say, China in a trade deal? They kill us. I beat China all the time. All the time.”
Ivanka Trump didn't disclose whether or not she would like to be part of her father's campaign, but it seems she would consider it.
Ivanka Trump said in answer to the question, "Let's wait to see what he decides. Of course, as his daughter, I would be his strongest advocate."
