Did Ivanka Trump act as ‘daddy’s daughter’ at the Republican National Convention 2020? Well, that is what the Internet alludes to her saying that President Donald Trump's eldest daughter said 'my father' 16 times while addressing the GOP on Thursday, August 27. In her speech, Ivanka introduced the POTUS to accept his nomination, calling herself “the proud daughter of the people’s president.” She sought to humanize her father with stories about his grandchildren and praise for his agenda on behalf of the Americans.

Ivanka, who is the senior adviser in the White House, conceded that “my dad’s communication style is not to everyone’s taste.” She added that the president’s tweets “can feel a bit unfiltered.” Speaking live from the South Lawn of the White House with American flags behind her, she said regarding Covid-19, “I’ve been with my father and seen the pain in his eyes when he receives updates on the lives that have been stolen by this plague. I have witnessed him make some of the most difficult decisions of his life.” She continued to use the term “my father” for Trump in the speech. “My father did not campaign on this issue. He tackled this injustice because he has a deep compassion for those who have been treated unfairly. More than rhetoric and political prose, the ability to build consensus and achieve bipartisan success like this will help heal our country’s racial inequities and bring us forward — together.”

Ivanka received a standing ovation from the crowd when she said her father made a peace agreement with the Middle East between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, calling it “the biggest breakthrough in a quarter-century.” She said supporting her father, “Dad, people attack you for being unconventional, but I love you for being real, and I respect you for being effective.” As per the New York Times, Ivanka had drawn criticism earlier for traveling to her family’s New Jersey estate for Passover in April despite travel restrictions that were in place amid the pandemic. Publicly, as per the NYT report, she as pushed an agenda that focused on expanding the child tax credit and increasing paid family leave for workers. 

She said during her speech, “Donald Trump came to Washington for one reason, and one reason alone: To Make America Great Again!” She urged on having a culture where different opinions can exist. “We want a culture where differences of opinions and debate are encouraged, not canceled; where law enforcement is respected; where our country's rich diversity is celebrated; and where people of all backgrounds, races, genders and creeds have the chance to achieve their God-given potential. This is the future that my father is working to build each day.” She mentioned how Trump is working for construction workers, saying, “Building is what my father has done all his life. He has admired and befriended construction workers on countless job sites. But it has been a new and profound experience for him, and for me, to see these stoic machinists and steelworkers come to him with tears in their eyes and thank him for being the only person willing to go to the mat for them -- for their jobs, for their families and for their futures.”
Soon after she spoke at the GOP, social media users mocked her for using "my father" several times during her speech. Journalist Aaron Rupar tweeted, “Ivanka Trump has said 'my father' at least 16 times and counting.”


Another concurred, “I'm not sure how many times Ivanka has said 'my father' but i think it's all of them.” 


One said mockingly, “The most truthful thing Ivanka has said in her speech is that Donald Trump is her father.” 


Some criticized her claims. “Ivanka comes off as cheesy and over the top. She just said her father’s tweets 'can be a little over the top' with a huge un-ironic smile.” 


One wrote, “Ivanka Trump just said that her father was the defender of common sense. 2020 is insane #Trumpsmh” 


Some came in support of her. “Smart of Ivanka to hit home how well Trump has done with childcare, right now, in this moment, when parents have so much childcare support.”
