Ivanka Trump addressed the Republican National Convention before introducing her father Donald Trump, saying her father is the person to "make America great again."

"For more than a year, Donald Trump has been the people’s champion. And tonight, he is the people’s nominee," she said.

Ivanka talked about her father as a leader of great construction projects and a fighter-champion for the downtrodden.

"Maybe it’s the developer in him, but Donald Trump cannot stand to see empty main streets and boarded-up factories," she said. "He can’t comprehend the injustice of college graduates who are crippled by student debt and mothers who can’t afford the cost of the childcare required to return to work to better the lives of their families.

"Other politicians see these hardships see the unfairness of it all and say, 'I feel for you.' Only my father says, 'I’ll fight for you.'"

In a moment that stood out, Ivanka also said that her father would fight for equal pay for women.

"Politicians talk about wage equality, but my father has made it a practice at his company throughout his entire career," she said. "He will fight for equal pay for equal work and I will fight for this too, right alongside of him."
