tv Erin Burnett Out Front CNN September 13, 2016 4:00pm-5:01pm PDT
now that's it for me. thank you very much for watching. i'm wolf blitzer in the situation roma. erin burnett out front starts right now. president obama slams donald trump, says he's not fit in any way, shape or form to be president. trump live this hour. how will he hit mac. and talking to dr. oz about the health. and why is the tv doctor under fire even before the interview rolls. and olympic swimmer ryan lochte ambushed on live tv. it's out fron"out front".
>> o bobama coming out swinging donald trump mocking him at times saying he's being graded on a curve. >> donald trump says stuff every day that used to be considered as disqualifying for being president. and yet, because he says it over and over and over again the press just gives up and they just say well, yeah. you know, okay. >> now trump is speaking live this hour just moments from now. introducing him will be his daughter ivanka who's been off the trail for a while. her first high profile appearance since the republican convention. as trump is trying to aggressively seize the moment. trump tried to slam her for calling some of his supporters deplorable. >> i called you hard-working
american patriots who love your country and want a better future for all of our people. >> our coverage with michelle kosins kosinski. >> this is the second time we've seen president obama come out. the first appearance was with hillary clinton and this is him trying to make this count. the white house has said his schedule hasn't allowed more campaigning. so he was out here standing at the foot of the philadelphia art museum steps. yes, the ones from rocky. showing quickly he was here dwroe support hillary clinton but also to punch back repeatedly and eloquently against donald trump. he didn't hold back. here is part of it.
>> the bottom line is that we cannot afford suddenly to treat this like a reality show. we can't afford to act as if there is some equivalence here. to be president, you have to do your homework. and you have to know what you are talking about. and you have got to apply steady judgment even when things don't go your way. and you have got to make the tough calls even when they are not popular. >> the president hit out at the republican party saying fanning resentment and blame sounding incredulous at times. also called out donald trump for his knowledge, business deal, praising of vladimir putin. and even his charity work and said that trump is hiding his tax returns. so look at president obama as hillary clinton's most popular, most influential supporter right
now and this is what we can expect much more of when he gets out onto the trail in erp --. >> reporter: with hillary clinton off the campaign trail for second day in a row, donald trump is looking for a burst of momentum. >> well my opponent slanders you as deplorable and irredeemable. i call you hard-working american patriots who love your country and want a better future for all of our people. >> if gop nominee adopting a double-barrelled strategy unloading on clinton over her remark that half of his supporters are deplorables, with intolerant views of race, sex and religion. >> she's running a policy free
campaign, she offer nos idea new york city solutions and only hatred and derision. have you vote for me or whether you vote for someone else, i will be still your greatest champion. >> reporter: as well as guaranteeing maternity leave for new mothers who's employers don't provide it. offering six weeks of unemployment insurance benefits. a . >> how stupid are the people of the country? >> we're building a wall. >> he's a mexican. >> "oh i don't know what i said." . "i don't remember." >> seizing also on this mike pence interview with wolf. >> donald trump has denounced david duke repeatedly.
we don't want his support and we don't want the support of people who think like him. >> you call him a deplorable. >> not in the name calling business. >> reporter: the democrats piling on after democrats refused to call duke deplorable. clinton tweeted, if you won't say the kkk is deplorable, you have no business running the country. as tim kaine argued -- >> if you cannot call out bigotry, if you cannot call out racism, xenophobixenophobia, ift call it out and you are standing around silent around it you are enabling it to grow. you are enabling it to become more powerful. >> all this as duke on twitter celebrates pence's response on social media and in interviews.
now donald trump will take the stage here in pennsylvania in just a few minutes. we're expecting him to lay out more details about his chooild ca care. and the big question, how he's going to pay for all of these new proposals. >> counting down to that appearance by trump and his daughter in moments. up front now. corey lewandowski. and -- and michael nutter. mayor nutter. trump on the trail, hammering clinton. she's off the trail sick. two days in a row without seeing her sound to reput him is a big opportunity for him. the polls are tightening. is this valuable time lost for her? >> the fact of the matter is that every now and then because candidates are human like everyone else, sometimes people get sick. and she should take care of
herself. there is stale lot of time on the clock. and obviously wants to be in good shape. i would expect the other candidate is going to continue to campaign. just because hillary clinton is not campaigning doesn't mean that donald trump going to go home. you know, you make up the time. >> and you have president obama out there who's arguably the best campaigner alive. and hillary clinton would be first to say much better than she herself. so perhaps even more effective. coming out today and slamming trump on other people's donations to buy things for himself via donation here is how president obama put it. >> one ndidate's family foundation has saved countless lives around the world. the other candidate's foundation took money other people gave to his charity and then bought a six foot tall painting of himself. he had the taste not to go for
the 10 foot version, but -- [ laughter ] >> a gifts campaigner. >> gifted campaigner. but i'm saying this president reagan was able to help vice president george hw. bush in 1988 but that was something a host of parties have not been able do is transfer their popularity to the next person. i don't really think that president obama is going do it. i would take note and i'm very happy to be here with the former mayor of philadelphia who would know exactly what i'm saying. the reason for president obama to be in philadelphia today is because that is called energizing the base. they are concerned, clearly that there are people in philadelphia that are not as energized for hillary clinton as they should be. and that is why you have him right there. because it is a democratic is it. >> i the president is always going to be throughout. and people are always going to be enthusiastic about him. and he does have transferability of his coalition to hillary
clinton. that is crystal clear. >> -- philadelphia because they have -- they have to win it. they can't not win. >> he's going win philadelphia. >> we had joe biden there from scranton. we had president obama out there now. president bill clinton on the trail. these are heavyweights out there supporting hillary clinton you. don't really see any heavyweight republicans out there supporting donald trump. that is a fact. the governor of ohio was not going to be helping to turn out anybody in that critical swing state for donald trump. so donald trump has to do everything himself. hillary clinton has a strong operation. multiple states and also has the power hitters now helping her clean up. >> let's go corey now. in the past 72 hours, this break in hillary clinton. you would think full steam ahead. get on i 95 and floor it for trump. then another david duke. mike pence says call him deplorable. denounced him. don't want his support but i'm not going to use names.
i'm not going call him deplorable. >> or anything else for that matter. >> former grand wizard of the kkk -- >> -- [inaudible]. >> -- who was hillary clinton's mentor in the u.s. senate was also part of the kkk and what she said was -- excuse me. said was i don't want his support. and he apologized. i don't think anyone has questioned his commitment to the campaign or for the republican party. nobody's made dispersions against governor pence and what he said to your colleague here was i'm not going call anybody any names. and the difference with that is now you are no now criticizing someone for not calling someone a name as opposed to getting into the mud -- >> -- organization. >> -- exactly right. >> -- duke is a deplorable person and his leadership of the kkw was deplorable as well. the kkk is deplorable.
he led that organization. he should say it. >> -- interview by trump to matt lauer in the today show in which he he said he was a bigot and a racist. >> in i -- >> your political party couldn't bring itself in 1924 to condemn the ku klux klan. you you just had a convention. don't you think it is time to condemn the ku klux klan? >> 1924? seriously? get out of here. >> yes. it's history -- >> -- >> -- i think we know about it. i think we are very clear where we are. >> the democratic party is afraid because when you look at the intensity of support between hillary clinton and donald trump he has a 15 point lead. means his people o now are more motivated. the democrats have spent a
hundred million on ads. and hillary clinton is off the campaign trail. and donald trump will have been to maryland, ohio, iowa, new hampshire, north carolina, michigan michigan. >> pennsylvania pennsylvania. >> -- pennsylvania. and where is hillary clinton? she's resting -- >> those states have not gone away. they are not going to disappear and she'll go back. she'll go back. >> she doesn't have to be out there on her own all the time because she has such a broad base of support. almost all the polls in the mainstream and mainstream media have her up by at least 3-5 digits and state of florida she's up 25-40% among latinos. >> -- independents. down four points the last florida poll. and l.a. times she's down three points today. >> we're saying bye for now because donald trump is about to speak in pennsylvania. the new york attorney general tonight opening investigation
into the trump foundation. we have a special report. plus trump will open up about his health to dr. oz. but how much will we really find out about this interview? >> the manufactumetaphor is thi doctor's office -- >> and when "dancing with the stars" turned into the protesting with the stars. the video you didn't see live last night (announcer vo) who says your desk phone always has to be at your desk? now, with one talk from verizon... hi, pete. i'm glad you called.

>> translator: it is a sticky little thing called a fact. tens of millions of dollars that the trump campaign continuously says donald trump has given away without specifically providing any of the sticky little facts to back it you will up. >> anyone who knows about donald trump in his career knows this is a man who's given away tens of millions to charitable causes. >> joining us now kelly yan conway. >>. >> will you or the campaign release exactly what that number is is this. >> i doubt it. >> the reason i ask -- why would you doubt it? >> this is like badgering. i don't see it as journalism. i see it as bamgterring. >> the first thing you will
notice is the foundation is relatively small. in 2014 it has just $1.3 million in the bank. and donald trump hasn't given any money to his foundation since 2008. the foundation receives donations from people who seem to do business or sponsor tv appearances with donald trump. nbc, comedy central. the washington post reported a $10,000 donation the donald trump foundation says it gaive o the director of commission on aids said they didn't receive it but it turns out trump did $10,000. >> i was able to clarify the
confusion when they were putting this story together. >> translator: in a second instance the washington post reported trump's foundation failed to give a $10,000 foundation to the giving back fund. a fund devoted to charitable causes of athletes. turns out trump did in fact give money there. trump apparently made the donation to the charity's ben roethlisberger foundation, not to the foundation itself. >> erin, we just found another inconsistency. just within the last hour, bolsters donald trump's claim he's been attacked unfairly. the tax forms showed that he gave a thousand dollars to a group friends of veterans in vermont and they said they didn't receive. that and e we checked and a florida name with the same charity did get the money in
2015. looks like a case of sloppiness on the trump foundation's part. and contacted the washington post and they said they weren't any inconsistencies but they have since updated the story on the website. this is only going feed into the pushback we're getting from the trump campaign that reporting on trump's charitable contributions are filled with ined adinaccurad we repeatedly asked over and over where are the specifics? we haven't gotten an answer. >> my panel back of me, this is pretty significant. big story came out. it got a lot of attention that trump said he gave money and he debate give money and the attorney general of new york now investigating the foundation and then it turns out that at least in three of these cases what the foundation said it did, it did. >> yeah. i guess it just always seems to be something over on the trump side whether on temperature campaign side the business side or now the foundation side.
gave a contribution, didn't give a contribution. suddenly found it. we never goat it. etc., etc. always something with them and just can't seem to get their act together. >> and corey this doesn't change. there are questions on some of the donations and doesn't change the fact that trump himself has not donated to his own foundation since the year 2008 so some of these core issues don't change. >> he gives his money to charities personally. he doesn't give to it his foundation. he gives it personally. we saw he raised 6 million for veterans this year. he wrote a million dollar check out of his own personal account and gave toyoit to the marine c law enforcement foundation. it was a million. no one's talking about that. in three instances the washington post has done shoddy work to say the least. this would not be accepted in a college paper when you go back to verify that the individual whose say they receive the money actually receive the money. we've got three instances now where we say donald trump gave
them, ten thousand, ten thois, a thousand dollars. the washington post says it doesn't occur. now we did receive the money. how many other instances did the washington post not verify before they decided to write a column -- >> i'll -- -- when they called those charities at the time that is what they told us. >> -- matter of transparency. always talk about the hillary's transparency. donald trump has yet to release any tax returns. and that would answer any questions. if there is going to be transparency on one side and -- >> -- going to his personal donations. if there is proof and they say tens of millions of dollars. just put the tax returns out there. it is all there. >> my view is that this whole tax thing. we've had presidents of the united states all the way up
until richard nixon who never released their tax returns. i just -- >> -- and everyone since has. i released 10 years of my tax rushs. i was only running for mayor. he should release his tax returns. that is just what you do. >> -- >> exactly. >> when you come to investigation of the trump foundationish you have the attorney general of new york. this is a man who's endorsed hillary clinton, donated the maximum amount of money he could to her campaign. joined her new york leadership counsel. she says that on her own site. how can he come out -- >> i doubt that the new york attorney general is personally doing the investigation. this is what you have an office for. but the rules are the rules. and i would not say that someone giving someone a contribution compromises their ability -- they took an oath do their job. he'll do his job. pthe attorney general of new out york. i've looked into this three
years ago. this guy, i don't know how else to say it is a sleaze. a former democratic state senator who was convicted and went to prison for the feds, accused him of being corrupt. went to the trump foundation one time after another after another and oh don't worry. >> -- is ethical because he took the money from them and then swregt vegt. >> the point here is this guy i, he wants to be governor of new york. the last couple of governors have been attorneys general. he's a sleaze and this is just one more corrupt play on his part. >> he gives money to the trumps -- >> question the attorney general is highly partsen and this is politically motivating. i find it amazing that we are within eight weeks -- >> -- not investigating the
trump university is politically motivated? if you are going to say one don't you need to say the other? >> this group is using their power selectively. when they had the --. new york law says. he says, no no. we don't have to disclose those. you don't have to scloepz foreign donations. very clear. now he's systematically going after the trump foundation with eight weeks to go in a presidential campaign. >> donald trump about to take the stage any moment. his daughter ivanka introducing him. and much more. plus the day before trump talks to dr. oz about his health, the tv doctor is already promising no tough questions. (burke) at farmers, we've seen almost everything,
breaking news moments ago. the clinton campaign confirming the campaign will return to the trail on thursday which means she'll have been off the trail for three days following her health scare on sunday, four days actually. that is not stopping clinton from trying to turn the tables on her critics.
>> hillary clinton resting up at home with pneumonia while battling questions about transparency over a weekend health scare. >> why keep it a secret is this. >> well i just didn't think it was going to be that big of a deal. >> revealing her diagnose after this video surfaces of her nearly collapsing sunday while leave i leaving a 9/11 ceremony early. she had been diagnosed with pneumonia two days before. she and her husband are trying to set her medical state straight. >> frequently -- well rarely but on occasions over the last years, same things have happened to her when she got severely dehydrated. >> i think only twice that i can recall. you know it is something that has occurred a few times over the course of my life.
and i'm aware of it and usually can avoid it. >> donald trump also facing questions about his medical history having released very little information besides a colorful letter from his doctor saying his test results were astonishingly excellent and that trump will be the healthiest individual ever elected as president. kellyanne conway defending him. >> i don't know why we need such extensive medical reports when we have a right to privacy. >> even -- >> i agree it is an important issue and i think that there is one candidate in this race who's had recent health challenges that we all saw. >> trump promises to rerecent reresults of a recent physical. although the doctor says he'll only discuss he doesn't want to. >> we're not going to be talking about the secretary clinton for sure. and i don't want to talk about
things outside the health purview. >> now donald trump has made that promise that he'll release the result of that physical. we should point out it is something that hillary clinton has already done. donald trump not releasing anything about his medical history. but hooints campaign is working the to get information together. and it is unclear for both candidates how extensive this information is going to be. >> brianna, thank you. and outfront now. lieutenant governor. trump has not put out detailed numbers. he says he's going to do so this week. and he now say he's going to go on and do this interview with
dr. oz. >> it is going to be entertaining zblu he's not going to ask anything. >> no doctor will discuss his or her patient beyond what the patient has permitted. that is true no matter who it is. no doctor is going to go on television and discussion a patient more broadly or with more detail than the patient has already conceded to. that is just the way it is with the hipaa laws. >> so then should he be doing an interview with someone who would then ask journalistic impressions? >> let's go back eight years when john mccain opened up his records and allowed them to have a discussion about what his health was. really set a high bar. and a bar quite frankly that
hillary clinton and donald trump should really aspire too. >> part of the issue here of course is that you are talking about people who -- you know, ronald reagan was the oldest president. donald trump would be older at election. hillary clinton would be the secondest oldest. right now the numbers, asking more of the age, fits with the airline. mandatory retirement of 65. three quarters of companies in the s&p 500 have a mandatory retirement for board members. the age is 72. do presidents of the united states also owe more to the american people? >> well, if you are talking to me, sure. we have this terribly important office and we would like to have that information. we'd like to get some assurance these are people who are sufficiently fit. that they can conduct their office appropriately. make the importance decisions over the next four years. so yes, i'm all in favor of transparency and think it is a
good idea. so lieutenant governor, minority leader is weighing into this. -- >> he bragged about the falsehood afterwards. >> -- weighing into the debate against donald trump here. >> he complains about her health? >> what does he do? he's 70 years old. not slim and trim. he brags about eating fast food every day. look at his health a little bit. >> he has no honor. i wouldn't try to pay attention to anything he said. let me just say this. mrs. clinton has red flagged her own health. generally aging involves some sort of tradeoff between wisdom and recall. and mrs. clinton has told us that she has a problem with recall when she was being interviewed by the fbi. she said again and again she
didn't recall. >> that was of course in the immediate aftermath of her injury. >> no it was not. let me finish. she told them this year she did not recall ever having been briefed on how to protect classified information and explained to the fbi pointed directly to her concussion and her cerebral vein thrombosis as reasonable to failure to recall. so she's has raised that. >> here is where we are. hillary clinton has put out a pretty comprehensive, two page medical report. last night sanjay gupta was able to list out the medications she's taking. because she has this detailed medical report. is she able to for donald trump? no. donald trump released a one letter, four page paragraph
laced with superlatives and basically says he's positive for everything. that is where we are with the facts of hillary clinton and donald trump. and she said she's going put out more information. so there is a double standard. that is absolutely. that is what harry reed was trying to say. she put out decades of personal taxes. he has not put out anything. >> let let me say, donald trump. do you think this interview with dr. oz will answer any questions when he won't ask anything donald trump not comfortable answering? >> i'm not convinced at all that the television show is the appropriate venue. >> -- point. >> -- like to see a perfectly reasonable letter from mr. trump's physician that goes into detail about the recent physical evaluation, laboratory e vabt and the like. and i would like that because it is a more professional way to communicate. >> thanks very much to all. next vladimir putin is he taking advantage of donald trump?
and donald and ivanka about to speak live in pennsylvania. can a chiek plan and ivanka help a help there's no one road out there. no one surface... no one speed... no one way of driving on each and every road. but there is one car that can conquer them all. the mercedes-benz c-class. five driving modes let you customize the steering, shift points, and suspension to fit the mood you're in... and the road you're on. the 2016 c-class. starting at $38,950. mercedes-benz. the best or nothing. i've bfrom nature's bounty to support my heart. i'm running, four times a week. eating better, keeping healthy.

breaking news. donald trump about to take the stage in aston, pennsylvania. looking at live pictures of his rally, coming on the same day president obama attacked trump for praising russian president vladimir putin. he says putin is trump's role model. >> he love this is guy. i have to do business with putin. i have to do business with russia. that is part of foreign policy. but i don't go around saying that is my role model. can you image ronald reagan idolizing someone line that. >> ambassador wossi, another former director of the cia, michael morel along with mike vickers of intelligence wrote a letter to trump. and in part you cannot credibly
serve as commander and chief if you embrace russian president vladimir putin. you are backing donald trump. why are they wrong? >> i think what mr. trump does is much more important than what he says. sometimes you say things in dmoe diplomacy that are not clear. but we were close an al life joseph stalin in world war ii against hitler because we needed stalin and roosevelt called him uncle joe and there was lots of quasifriendliness. what we mattered is that we had massive armed forces and we used them and the russians respected us. you don't succeed at something like this based just on language. language is a tool. i don't think it is an absolute. >> you have spoken out
ambassador against putin yourself telling the washington post in 2005, russia under putin is already a fascist state or close to becoming one. so we know where you stand on this. >> i think that is right. >> -- more important than what he says. right now he hasn't done anything when it comes to russia. all he's done is say. and here how he's -- >> i think i'd get along very well with vladimir putin. >> putin is a nicer person than i am. i would get along with russia. i would get aalong with putin. and he's not going make us look bad anymore. >> what makes you comfortable with him saying all of those things? what makes you believe he's do something different? >> i don't know the circumstances. i don't know whether he's trying to lure putin into a cordial relationship on something that would be in the united states interests even though he's planning to build up substantially our military
forces, which they really need. i don't know. i mean, you can't make judgments, i think on diplomatic overtures and this kind of thing just looking at the words. you have to understand what the statesman is trying to and it is hard to do that. yet with either trump or clinton, because they are not in charge -- >> so let me ask you because you are going to be advising trump. he said recently if iran harasses u.s. ships as happened recently, they will be shot out of water. he has said other things like that. let me just play for you what he said. zb >> i would bomb the [ bleep ] out of them. i would just bomb those suckers. >> somebody hits us within isis you wouldn't fight back. >> europe's a big place. i'm not going take cards off the
table. we have nuclear capability. >> we have no choice but to bomb them. >> what are you going to tell him about things like that? does he need to cut it out? >> well if the iranians let's say followed through with some of the things they have been threatening and shoot down one of our aircraft, i think one thing ought to be very seriously considered is doing what we did not do in 1983 when they blew up our marine barracks. we thought about doing something and then president reagan let secretary weinberger decide and he decided not do anything in retaliation. and we've been paying for that for two decades because we looked weak. and that is what matters in that part of the world particularly. so i think the answer is if they come after one of our aircraft, we ought to be prepared. and i do not expect president obama to do anything like that. but we ought to be prepared to
blast some major, important installation of theirs. and then we can smile again. but i think you -- you can't just go on what somebody says in a circumstance like this. you have to build up a reputation for being effective and forceful. and if they shoot down one of our aircraft i think president obama ought to go right back at them. i don't think he ever will. i think it is completely outside of his nature. >> ambassador woolsy thank you for your time tonight.ey thank for your time tonight. ivanka and donald trump going to be speaking tonight. first time since the actual republican convention. a major night tonight. and more. (announcer vo) who says your desk phone
always has to be at your desk? now, with one talk from verizon... hi, pete. i'm glad you called. (announcer vo) all your phones can work together on one number. you can move calls between phones, so conversations can go where you go. take your time. i'm not going anywhere. (announcer vo) and when you're not available, one talk helps find the right person who is. hi, john. (announcer vo) so wherever work takes you, as i've traveled 5r7d the
country with my father, stories about the hardships caused by existing healthcare system. too expensive. >> too outside dated and too unaccessible come up time and time again. just last week i spoke with a military spouse who recounted the vicious cycle responsible for holding so many american families back economically. she relayed the frustration i've heard all too often of not being able to work and bring home a second income because she can't afford quality and reliable child care. stories like these go straight to my heart. and they have steeled my belief that there has to be a berts way. i have three young children myself and i'm grateful daily for the means to pursue two of my dreams, being a mother and investing in a career that fulfills me. i recognize that far too few women can say the same for themselves and that i am more fortunate than most.
this must change. as a society, we need to create policies that champion all parents, enabling the american family to thrive. my dad grease. and he -- agrees and he's in a very unique position to do something about this problem and millions of other problems facing parents and care givers across our country. today child care is a single greatest expense for many american families, even exceeding the cost of housing in much of the country. it is completing the hard-earned savings of men and women across our nation and at the root of wage inequality by disproportionately effecting women. the federal policies that are in place to benefit families were written more than 65 years ago to serve a primarily male workforce that no longer exists. dual income families were not the norm in 1949 when the
current tax codes regarding families were established. today however women represent 47% of the u.s. labor force and in almost 2/3 of married couples both spouses work outside of the home. 70% of mothers with children at home also work in a professional capacity and 64% of these moms have kids age six and under. the number of households led my single mothers had doubled in the last 30 years and approximately two-thirds of these women work in low wage jobs that offer neither flexibility nor benefits. my father has created a plan that is designed to bring relief and to provide working parents with options so that they can make the decisions that are in the best interests of their families. safe, affordable high quality child care should not be the luxury of a fortunate few. historically this is not been an
area that has received nearly as much attention in the policy world as it deserves. while there are systems in place for older children, hardly any intellectual energy has been devoted to addressing the needs of families with children from birth to four years old. in particular little focus has been put on determining how best to alleviate the enormous financial burdens child care places on low income and middle income families. at the same time, the united states is the only industrialized nation in the world that does not provide new mothers with paid maternity leave. my father's policy will give paid leave the mothers whose employers are among the almost 90% of u.s. businesses that currently do not offer this benefit. that is reform that is of critical value and long overdue. my father's plan also recognize and supports the many women who may not be mothers but who have
left paying jobs to provide care for elderly dependents. this is another example of people who have been routinely ignored by federal policies. having employed and empowered thousands of women at every level of his company throughout his entire career my father understands the needs of the modern workforce is offering a new and innovative solution where others have not. -- the stay at home moms and parents and fathers and mothers and will ensure they too receive these tax benefits. raising children full time is one of the hardest jobs anyone can do and it is essential our policies recognize and honor that reality. as an employer, a mother, and a woman who works both inside and outside the home these are topics i consider of critical
importance. the policy my father is about to outline is one that i'm proud to have helped conceptualize. and ensuring its enactment will be one of my top priorities when me is elected come november. [ applause ] this is not a woman's issue. it is a family issue. it is an american issue. it is an issue that's often been discussed but is yet to be solved. my father plans to change that. and now he will tell you. it is with great admiration and respect that i introduce to you our next president, and my father, donald j. trump.
[ cheers and applause ] thank you everybody. that's very nice. beautiful. thank you very much. and i want to applaud my daughter ivanka for her work and leadership on this issue. she has been working very -- so very hard. ivanka has been deeply invested in this since long before the campaign began. i can tell you that. and i'm very grateful to her for her work. her efforts and this proposal which we're going to be outlining right away. i think it is going to make a lot of people very happy. a lot of moms very happy. i want to also take a moment to recognize congresswoman kathy
