From Detroit Free Press
“He raised me to be a strong woman and voice my opinion,” Ivanka Trump told the Detroit Free Press in an interview. “I share with him when I agree and when I disagree.”
She may be the campaign whisperer in an often-blustery realm of Donald Trump.
Trump’s eldest daughter, Ivanka Trump, offered a full-throated but soft-spoken defense of her father’s sometimes-controversial candidacy in an interview following his speech Monday before the Detroit Economic Club.
“He raised me to be a strong woman and voice my opinion,” she told the Detroit Free Press. “I share with him when I agree and when I disagree.”
When asked whether she could provide some examples of where she and her father disagreed on policy or strategy, she demurred.
Her advice is provided “privately, because that’s the nature of our relationship,” she said. “But I’m very inspired by what he’s done.”
To critics who call her father’s temperament “volatile,” Ivanka Trump challenged the characterization, calling her father “incredibly level-headed.”
“I think that he fights, and he’s strong, and he’s had to fight. He has a lot of people coming at him,” Trump said sitting in a windowless room deep beneath Cobo Center, where the Republican presidential nominee addressed nearly 1,500 business executives and supporters.
Now is not the time to start telling Donald Trump to alter his approach after so much success, according to his daughter.
The New York City real estate magnate who has never run for elected office “beat 16 incredibly capable, competent people in the Republican primaries, so it’s not my place to tell him to change his campaigning style,” Ivanka Trump said.
“I think he fights the fights that he feels are important for this country, and he’ll bring that same spirit and that same energy to the White House,” she added. “I think people want somebody who is going to fight for them.”
