Trump daughters rally for father in northern Virginia

MANASSAS, Va. (WRIC) — Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump held five rallies in five states Monday.

In Florida, he called Hillary Clinton the most corrupt person ever to run for president. His running mate, Mike Pence, was in Minnesota urging voters to “come home” and vote for Trump. Both Trump and Pence also criticized the FBI’s decision not to charge Clinton over her emails.

In Virginia, Ivanka Trump campaigned for her father in Manassas at an event that was dubbed a town hall meeting but was nothing short of a rally.

The crowd of hundreds heard from not only Ivanka but her sister, Tiffany, too. Both received warm welcomes from the large crowd, most of whom were women — the people democrats insist will not vote for Donald Trump.


“I’ll tell you as a woman what issues are important to me: It’s jobs, it’s health, it’s the economy, it’s our school system, it’s health care, it’s security,” I. Trump told the crowd. “So these are women’s issues. These are men’s issues. These are American issues.”

T. Trump, meanwhile, spoke to the younger voters, the millennials who need jobs and less student debt.

“That is what I look for in a president and I think my father would be the man to get the job done,” she said.

“I’ve watched the debates with my Dad and I just think it’s interesting to hear from them besides hearing from Trump himself,” Trump supporter Shannon Hutchens told 8News.

Another Trump supporter who attended the rally, Freddie Hudson, told 8News, “I think this election is about change. I don’t think we want another 4 years of what we’ve had the last 8 years. Donald Trump represents change. He represents real change.”
