WASHINGTON — Ivanka Trump said Washington, D.C., hates her father because he has called out its hypocrisy.

Instead of letting Washington change him, she said President Donald Trump changed Washington, and she said the U.S. needs four more years of leadership from the “warrior” in the White House.

Introducing her father on the Republican National Convention’s final night, Ivanka Trump also took a swipe at Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, whom she calls “another empty vessel who will do whatever the media and the fringe of his party demands.”

Senior adviser Ivanka Trump said her father doesn’t surrender his beliefs to score points with the political elite. She said the working men and women of America are the only elites he cares about.

She said she loves him for “being real” and respects him for “being effective."

Ivanka Trump introduced her father at the 2016 convention. She joined him in the White House as an unpaid senior adviser, focused mostly on workforce development and job training issues, child care, paid family leave and helping women in developing countries.

Aides said she was cleared by the White House Counsel’s Office to present the president on Thursday because she was doing so as his daughter and on her own time.

The president has seen his public standing hobbled by his often aggressive rhetoric and handling of the coronavirus pandemic.
