During an interview with the New York Times, President Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump described herself as a “proud Trump Republican.”
The Daily Caller reports: “In what has been a remarkable 180-degree political transformation from when she was a Democratic donor with progressive views on issues like climate change, parental leave, and pay equity, her status as a “card-carrying member of her father’s ‘Make America Great Again’ coalition is now complete,” writes Annie Karni and Maggie Haberman for the Times in an article published Monday.”
Ivanka Trump decided to switch from Democrat to Republican on October 22, 2018 so that she could vote for her father.
“I am a proud Trump Republican,” she said on Monday. “I believe he’s broadened the reach of the Republican Party, which is really important to me.”
While discussing her change in parties, Ivanka Trump said that she was not “going to speculate” on what other people thought about her: “In areas outside of my portfolio, I tend to agree more with the more conservative viewpoint more often than where the Democrats are today. No one person or party has a monopoly on good ideas.”
Ivanka Trump’s husband Jared Kushner has also recently switched parties. He recently told reporters that the Republican party “is growing now that people like me feel comfortable being part of it.”
