Ivanka hits campaign trail extra-hard after Trump's Covid-19 diagnosis with 3 swing state visits in 3 days
'Over the last 4 years, the president has fallen even more in love with his country. You need someone get something done,' Ivanka said at an Arizona event
Although Ivanka Trump was always ready to help her father in any way she can in his reelection efforts this year, she has presently become indispensable for the Trump campaign following his Covid-19 diagnosis a couple of weeks ago. Since then she has been hitting the campaign trail, trying to swing voters in battleground states in her dad's favor.
Over the weekend she traveled to Arizona for two events. She made the first stop at a vintage shop in Chandler and then headed to Paradise Valley to interact with supporters of Trump. "He's deeply in love with this country," she said of her father, reports AZ Family. "Over the last 4 years, the president has fallen even more in love with his country. You need someone get something done. You need someone with really strong convictions who is not afraid to go to the mat." The first daughter donned a mask throughout her trip, as she met with shop owners and also put on an apron for a brief cooking demo.
Although Arizona was not listed as one of the battleground states in the 2016 elections, it was declared as a swing state for the upcoming 2020 election. On Monday, Ivanka will be traveling to Nevada for a campaign event. However, not many details about the event were released. "I’m looking forward to visiting the great city of Las Vegas to support my father's re-election campaign. My family knows this city well, and my father has served the people of Nevada by cutting taxes, maintaining historically close ties with the Jewish state of Israel, and by funding our great military," Ivanka said. "Nevadans know he will continue to fight for them and this great state for four more years!"
The Trump campaign has also released the schedule for the first daughter for the near future, which has her visiting Hilbert, Wisconsin on Tuesday, October 13. She said that she is "excited to visit Hilbert to spread the President’s message of resilience and prosperity for this country in the years ahead."
The Democratic Party of Wisconsin spokesperson, Philip Shulman, provided a response on Ivanka's visit: "As coronavirus cases continue to surge in the Fox Valley, Wisconsinites are suffering greatly due to Trump’s failed leadership and his continued failures to lead. Even before the pandemic, Trump’s inability to hold China accountable and deliver for Wisconsinites cost us millions of jobs and cratered our economy. Trump exploited taxpayer dollars to give the rich and well-connected, including his family, even more handouts, and nothing they say will change the fact that the president has completely failed Wisconsinites and the American people -- and we are going to make that clear on November 3rd when we elect Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to the White House."
Meanwhile, the POTUS is trying his best to put his bout with Covid-19 behind him as he announced that he will return to the campaign trail on Monday with a rally in the vital battleground state of Florida. On Sunday he claimed that he was fully recovered and no longer infectious avoiding to mention directly whether he had tested negative for the virus.
