Ivanka Trump Set To Join Dad To Pitch Childcare Policy

By Sunlen Serfaty and David Wright

ASTON, Pa. (CNN) — Ivanka Trump is set to appear with Donald Trump at a campaign event in Pennsylvania Tuesday night, where the Republican nominee will deliver a speech outlining his childcare policy, according to the campaign.

A Trump campaign official said that Ivanka, who will introduce her father in Aston, Pennsylvania, has spent “considerable” time working on the childcare policies that will be featured in the speech, and that it will reflect “hours and hours of hard work to bring this proposal to fruition.”

The candidate’s daughter will be giving one of her most high profile remarks on the campaign trail since she delivered a well-received speech at the Republican National Convention in late July, and flashed her potential as an effective campaign surrogate.

In that speech in Cleveland, the mother of three herself spoke about the need for better childcare policies, saying that her father would “focus on making quality childcare affordable and accessible for all.” She argued that “policies that allow women with children to thrive should not be novelties, they should be the norm.”

The campaign official said that Donald Trump will argue Tuesday that he has a “real policy to lower the cost of childcare expenses” and that “Hillary just has platitudes.”

Additionally, Trump will likely continue to criticize Clinton for her remarks over the weekend, when she described “half” of Trump supporters as a “basket of deplorables” at a fundraising event — a comment for which she has expressed “regret.”
