Presidential debate 2020: Ivanka Trump slams Joe Biden for being typical politician with 'all talk, no action'
President Donald Trump's eldest daughter, Ivanka Trump, dismissed Democratic presidential nominee, Joe Biden," as "all talk, no action," on Thursday night, October 22. Her comments came after Trump and his political rival, Biden, participated in the final presidential debate of the year in Nashville, Tennessee.
Ivanka, a senior White House aide, offered her assessment of the final debate, which was considered soberer than the first debate last month on September 29. She took to Twitter shortly after the debate to praise her father, claiming "politicians like Biden" is why Trump was inspired to run for president in 2016. She wrote: "My father ran for President because of politicians like Biden. All talk, no action. My father has been a leader of action who has kept his promises. He will continue to fight & deliver for ALL Americans for #4MoreYears." She also wrote a separate tweet, saying: "Great job Mr. President!" and posted her picture with a mask on from Thursday night.

Ivanka also posted a picture of other Trump family members, including Tiffany Trump and Eric Trump, all of them wearing masks, which elicited angry reactions from some of the Trump supporters who claimed on social media that preventive measures do not reduce Covid-19 spread. Their remarks were contradictory to a majority of public health experts across the world saying otherwise.

Trump family members were picture without masks during the first presidential debate in Cleveland, Ohio. Nearly two days after the debate, President Trump announced that he and First Lady Melania Trump had been diagnosed with the Covid-19 disease. It was later revealed that their son, Barron Trump, had also tested positive for the virus along with multiple other members from the Trump administration.
Ivanka's criticism of Trump came after Trump turned to his eldest daughter in the final stretch of the 2020 campaign in an effort to garner the support of suburban women, which played a crucial role in his 2016 win. The first daughter, over the past six weeks, has reportedly made 17 campaign stops for her father. Trump, over the past few months, has repeatedly stated that he would save the "burbs as part of a larger effort to secure the support of suburban women."
The president, on Thursday morning, took to Twitter to write: "Finally! Suburban women are flocking over to us. They realize that I am saving the Suburbs – the American Dream! I terminated the Regulation that would bring projects and crime to Suburbia. Not on my watch!” he said, adding that if Biden won then he would oversee an increase in regulation.

Not on my watch! Biden will bring the Regulation back, but bigger and worse.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 22, 2020
Ivanka, over the past few weeks, has visited 10 battleground states — Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Ohio, Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Nevada and Arizona. After Trump, Ivanka is the most requested campaign surrogate for events, according to the White House officials. The first daughter, who plans to visit Pennsylvania, Florida, and North Carolina again before Election Day, reportedly brought in $15 million to the campaign from August through September by holding four fundraisers.
