Ivanka says why she is proud to be an American

First daughter Ivanka Trump said Tuesday that traveling the country during her father’s presidential campaign and following his inauguration has bolstered her appreciation for the U.S.

“I am proud on so many levels, and really traveling this country has made me even more of a proud American today than at any other point in my life,” she said in an interview with Fox News on Tuesday. “You see the spirit, the tenacity. You see the sacrifice.”

“You meet with soldiers and sailors and their families, and you think about all the things that they’re doing to ensure that the America we know remains true and can continue on,” she added.

The now-first daughter was a staple during her father’s appearances as a presidential candidate and moved to Washington in January when President Trump took office.

Both she and her husband Jared Kushner are considered two of the president’s closest and most influential advisers.
