Fox News host Eric Bolling asked: “Ivanka Trump: Commander in Chief?” He explained: “Some are pondering that idea tonight after President Trump told The Atlantic ‘if she ever wanted to run for president, I think she’d be very, very hard to beat’, adding that his daughter had created millions of jobs.” Mr Bolling also claimed that Ivanka was also allegedly very “good with numbers.” Former New York congresswoman Nan Hayworth was quick to back up the claims, exclaiming: “Big fan of Ivanka Trump.
“I’ve had the privilege of working with her on a couple of projects.
“She is intelligent, she is articulate, she is effective.
“And she deeply cares.
“I think she would take on that task and be exceedingly successful.”
But co-panellist and Fox News contributor Jessica Tarlov was much less enthusiastic.
She argued: “I’ve got a dad too and he thinks highly of me.
“The President speaks this way – he loves Ivanka. He thinks very highly of her.
“I was praising her for criminal justice reform.
“I’ve heard that she is very well liked.
“I don’t think that she has the policy chops or experience to be jumping into a presidential race in 2024 or 2028 or 20 anything.
“And I don’t think that she is someone who is going to rouse a lot of support beyond Trumpers.”
