President Donald Trump's address to Congress Tuesday night was written by senior adviser Stephen Miller, but Trump's daughter Ivanka played a part, according to Axios.

"The speech was all [Stephen] Miller, but Ivanka worked hard on it with him on many of the parts, especially affirming that the president's desire to have an uplifting and aspirational speech was right," reads an email from a senior administration official to Axios.

"Notice the focus on women's health. It was Hope [Hicks]'s idea to add the upfront line about how 'we are a country that stands united in condemning hate and evil in all of its very ugly forms.

"Ivanka was working with Miller in his office in the afternoon on the speech, including the paragraph on 'paid family leave ... women's health ... clean air and clean water' . . .

"A week ago, Ivanka and Dina Powell [senior counselor for economic initiatives] met with the president on those parts of the speech with Steve Miller and Hope, and talked about those issues and how they would resonate in an important way."

Politico reported in early February that Ivanka Trump and her husband, White House adviser Jared Kushner, pushed to prevent the president from releasing an executive order that would have eliminated protections for LGBT workers.
