At a mid-August fundraiser in Jackson Hole, Wyo., Ivanka Trump was asked to name the personality traits she inherited most from her parents. Without much of a pause, Trump told the crowd of roughly 120 high-end donors that her mother gave her an example of how to be a powerful, successful woman. And her father? He passed onto her his moral compass, she said, according to two event attendees. Trump's family isn't always offering something new. Ivanka Trumps comment about the traits she inherited from her father echoed a similar comment she made at the Republican National Convention in 2016, when she told the audience: "My father taught my siblings and me the importance of positive values and a strong ethical compass."
Donald Trump raised eyebrows when he awkwardly referred to Barron as "Melania's son" as he proposed a ban on flavoured e-cigarettes. The US president praised the First Lady for stressing the health risks of vaping for young people during a press conference. He said vaping had become a "giant business in a very short period of time" and insisted: "We can't allow people to get sick and we can't have our youth be so affected." He went on: "And that's how the first lady got involved. She's got a son... Together. That is a beautiful, young man, and she feels very, very strongly about it."
