Good evening.
Thank you.
One year ago, I introduced my father when he declared his candidacy.
In his own way, and through his own sheer force of will, he sacrificed greatly to enter
the political arena as an outsider.
And he prevailed against a field of 16 very talented competitors.
For more than a year, Donald Trump has been the people's champion, and tonight he's
the people's nominee.
Like many of my fellow millenials, I do not consider myself categorically Republican or
Democrat.
More than party affiliation, I vote on based on what I believe is right, for my family
and for my country.
Sometimes it's a tough choice.
That is not the case this time.
As the proud daughter of your nominee, I am here to tell you that this is the moment and
Donald Trump is the person to make America great again.
Real change, the kind we have not seen in decades is only going to come from outside
the system.
And it's only going to come from a man who's spent his entire life doing what others said
could not be done.
My father is a fighter.
When the primaries got tough and they were tough, he did what any great leader does.
He dug deeper, worked harder, got better and became stronger.
I have seen him fight for his family.
I have seen him fight for his employees.
I have seen him fight for his company.
And now, I am seeing him fight for our country.
It's been the story of his life and more recently the spirit of his campaign.
It's also a prelude to reaching the goal that unites us all.
When this party and better still this country knows what it is like to win again.
If it's possible to be famous and yet not really well done, that describes the father
who raised me.
In the same office in Trump Tower, where we now work together, I remember playing on the
floor by my father's desk, constructing miniature buildings with Legos and Erector
sets, while he did the same with concrete steel and glass.
My father taught my siblings and me the importance of positive values and a strong ethical compass.
He showed us how to be resilient, how to deal with challenges and how to strive for excellence
in all that we do.
He taught us that there's nothing that we cannot accomplish, if we marry vision and
passion with an enduring work ethic.
One of my father's greatest talents is the ability to see potential in people, before
they see it in themselves.
It was like that for us to growing up.
He taught us that potential vanishes into nothing without effort.
And like him, we each had a responsibility to work, not just for ourselves but for the
betterment of the world around us.
Over the years, on too many occasions to count, I saw my father tear stories out of the newspaper
about people whom he had never met, who were facing some injustice or hardship.
He'd write a note to his assistant, in a signature black felt tip pen, and request
that the person be found and invited to Trump Tower to meet with him.
He would talk to them and then draw upon his extensive network to find them a job or get
them a break.
And they would leave his office, as people so often do after having been with Donald
Trump, feeling that life could be great again.
Throughout my entire life, I have witnessed his empathy and generosity towards other,
especially those who are suffering.
It is just his way of being in your corner when you're down.
My father not only has the strength and ability necessary to be our next President, but also
the kindness and compassion that will enable him to be the leader that this country needs.
My father has a sense of fairness that touches every conviction he's hold.
I worked along side of him for now more than a decade now at the Trump Organization and
I've seen how he operates as a leader.
Making important decisions that shape careers and that change lives.
I've learned a lot about the world from walking construction jobs by his side.
When run properly, construction sites are true meritocracies.
Competence in the building trades is easy to spot and incompetence is impossible to
hide.
These sites are also incredible melting pots, gathering people from all walks of life and
uniting them to work towards a single mission.
There have always been men of all background and ethnicities on my father's job sites.
And long before it was common place, you also saw women.
My father values talent.
He recognizes real knowledge and skill when he finds it.
He is color blind and gender neutral.
He hires the best person for the job, period.
Words and promises, no matter visionary they sound will only get you so far.
In our business, you're not a builder, unless you've got a building to show for it, or
in my father's case, city skylines.
Most people strive their entire lives to achieve great success in a single industry.
My father has succeeded in many on the highest level and on a global scale.
One of the reasons he has thrived as an entrepreneur is because he listens to everyone.
Billionaire executives don't usually ask the people doing the work for their opinion
of the work.
My father is an exception.
TRUMP: On every one of his projects, you'll see him talking to the super, the painter,
the engineers, the electricians, he'll ask them for their feedback, if they think something
should be done differently, or could be done better.
When Donald Trump is in charge, all that counts is ability, effort and excellence.
This has long been the philosophy at the Trump Organization.
At my father's company, there are more female than male executives.
Women are paid equally for the work that we do and when a woman becomes a mother, she
is supported, not shut out.
Women represent 46 percent of the total U.S. labor force, and 40 percent of American households
have female primary breadwinners.
In 2014, women made 83 cents for every dollar made by a man.
Single women without children earn 94 cents for each dollar earned by a man, whereas married
mothers made only 77 cents.
As researchers have noted, gender is no longer the factor creating the greatest wage discrepancy
in this country, motherhood is.
As President, my father will change the labor laws that were put into place at a time when
women were not a significant portion of the workforce.
And he will focus on making quality childcare affordable and accessible for all.
As a mother myself, of three young children, I know how hard it is to work while raising
a family.
And I also know that I'm far more fortunate than most.
American families need relief.
Policies that allow women with children to thrive should not be novelties, they should
be the norm.
Politicians talk about wage equality, but my father has made it a practice at his company
throughout his entire career.
He will fight for equal pay for equal work, and I will fight for this too, right along
side of him.
Americans today need an economy that permits people to rise again.
A Trump Presidency will turn the economy around and restore the great American tradition of
giving each new generation hope for brighter opportunities than those of the generation
that came before.
In Donald Trump, you have a candidate who knows the difference between wanting something
done and making it happen.
When my father says that he will build a tower, keep an eye on the skyline.
Floor by floor a soaring structure will appear, usually record setting in its height and iconic
in its design.
Real people are hired to do real work.
Vision becomes reality.
When my father says that he will make America great again, he will deliver.
We have a chance this year, to reclaim our heritage as a country that dreams big and
makes the impossible happen.
Fortunately, Donald Trump is incapable of thinking small.
When I was a child, my father always told me, Ivanka if you're going to be thinking
anyway, you might as well think big.
As President, my father will take on the bold and worthy fights.
He will be unafraid to set lofty goals and he will be relentless in his determination
to achieve them.
To people all over America, I say, when you have my father in your corner, you will never
again have to worry about being let down.
He will fight for you all the time, all the way, every time.
Maybe it's the developer in him, but Donald Trump cannot stand to see empty main streets
and boarded up factories.
He can't bear the injustice of college graduates who are crippled by student debt, and mothers
who can't afford of the childcare required to return to work to better the lives of their
families.
Other politicians see these hardships, see the unfairness of it all, and they say I feel
for you.
Only my father will say, I'll fight for you.
The hard working men and women of this country identify with my father.
He is tough and he is persevering.
He is honest and he is real.
He's an optimist and he's a relentless believer in America and all of her potential.
He loves his family and he loves his country with his heart and his soul.
Politicians ask to be judged by their promises, not their results.
I ask you to judge my father by his results.
Judge his values by those he's instilled in his children.
Judge his competency by the towers he's built, the companies he's founded, and the
tens of thousands of jobs he's created.
He is the single most qualified serve as chief executive of an $18 trillion economy.
My father will call upon the best and brightest people from all spheres of industry and both
side of the aisle.
A new set of thinkers, to face our countries existing and future problems with fresh perspective
and brave new solutions.
Come January 17, all things will be possible again.
We can hope and dream and think big again.
No one has more faith in the American people than my father.
He will be your greatest, your truest and your most loyal champion.
This is the fighter, the doer that you have chosen as your nominee, in ways no one expected,
this moment in the life of our country has defined a mission and given it to an extraordinary
man.
He is ready to see it all the way through, to speak to every man and every woman, of
every background, in every part of this great country.
To earn your trust and to earn your vote.
He earned that and much more from me a long time ago.
I've loved and respected him, my entire life.
And I could not be more proud tonight, to present to you and to all of America, my father
and our next President, Donald J. Trump.
