Trump’s oldest daughter told 60 Minutes Sunday: “I’m going to be a daughter.

She later added: “I’ve said throughout the campaign that I am very passionate about certain issues. And that I want to fight for them.”

Ivanka added that wage quality, childcare and education are the topics that are “very important” to her.

Trump’s oldest children sat with the CBS program alongside their father and his third wife, Melania, in their first family interview following the election.

“It is hard to put into words the experience or the emotion when your father becomes president of the United States of America. We had enormous pride, joy. It’s incredibly exciting. And we’re very grateful for the opportunity. And we take that opportunity very seriously,” Ivanka said.
