Ivanka Trump says Donald Trump’s administration ‘changed the trajectory of this country’
Senior adviser to the president Ivanka Trump was the guest in “Hannity” right after Donald Trump’s State of the Union speech. In the interview, the First Daughter highlighted the President’s successes and said that his administration changed the country’s trajectory.
According to Ivanka, the State of the Union speech was an opportunity for Donald Trump to share his accomplishments. “It really was an incredible opportunity for the President to look directly at the American people and share all the things that this administration has accomplished,” Ivanka told Hannity.
One of his father’s accomplishments that Ivanka is particularly proud of is the low unemployment rate. “Obviously we see what’s happening from an economic growth perspective and how his policies are lifting the lives of so many,” the presidential adviser added. “Historically low unemployment across every single demographic - historically low unemployment for disabled Americans, historically low unemployment for African-Americans, for Asian-Americans.”
Ivanka added that her father’s administration successfully changed the nation’s trajectory. “And I think that's why the viewers who were watching today and realizing and celebrating alongside the president, alongside the rest of this country, what is happening,” Ivanka said. “Because we have completely changed the trajectory of this country.”
“And the president is unabashed in being excited about it and celebrating it and just being a cheerleader for American excellence,” Ivanka Trump added.
Ivanka also highlighted how Donald Trump’s administration generated jobs for those that need them most. “The fact that of all the new jobs created last year, 73 percent of them went to Americans that were marginalized, that were on the sidelines of the economy, not even those that were unemployed, completely on the sidelines,” the adviser said. “The fact that 10 million Americans have been lifted out of welfare. It is amazing. And he wants that for all Americans.”
President Trump and his team’s motivation is to help every American via the appropriate policies. “What motivates this president and what motivates all of us who work for him is the desire to uplift all Americans, which is why it was so important to start at the beginning of the speech talking about how all Americans are benefiting from these policies,” the First Daughter said. “Especially blue-collar Americans and those who have been left behind.”
