Transcript Of Ivanka Trump's Republican National Convention Speech


It seems that, decades from now, this year's Republican National Convention might be best remembered for its controversial speeches. The RNC began with Melania Trump's already infamous, plagiarized keynote on Monday night. On Wednesday, Ted Cruz refused to endorse the GOP nominee to a chorus of boos. Hopefully, Donald Trump can continue to count on his offspring to do right by him. His son Eric Trump and daughter Tiffany Trump both gave supportive speeches that were relatively unremarkable. Donald Trump, Jr.'s RNC speech was lauded as charismatic and was received. This left Ivanka as the only Trump child left to speak on the convention's final night — an experience that, as she put it, had her "terrified." A transcript of Ivanka Trump's Republican National Convention speech asserts, however, show's Trump's steadfast belief in her father, specifically in the way that he runs his business.

There was a lot weighing on Trump's shoulders as she approached the podium. Trump's close bond with her father and her ability to appeal to the public, presenting the GOP candidate as a caring, secure person and leader would bode well for him, as loyal members of his own party haven't yet signed off on him as a reasonable choice.

In an interview with Savannah Guthrie of The Today Show on Thursday, Ivanka alluded that she would "talk about the man [that Donald Trump] is as a leader and an entrepreneur and a business builder and a visionary." Downplaying the significance of her speech, Trump admitted "even if I bomb, my father won't hold it against me."

A constant fixture on her father's campaign trail, Trump used the platform on Thursday night as a way to advocate for her father's leadership abilities. She's remained perfectly supportive of her father's candidacy, improving Trump's standing among Republican women with her poise and polish.
