President Donald Trump propped up his daughter Ivanka in a new interview and said she would be a favorite to win a presidential election if she ever runs.
The Atlantic published a lengthy profile of Ivanka Trump and her role in the White House, where she works as a senior adviser. Her father told the media outlet that Ivanka has a "great calmness."
"If she ever wanted to run for president, I think she'd be very, very hard to beat," Trump said. "She went into the whole helping-people-with-jobs, and I wasn't sure that was going to be the best use of her time, but I didn't know how successful she'd be. She's created millions of jobs, and I had no idea she'd be that successful."
Trump later added, "She's got a great calmness … I've seen her under tremendous stress and pressure. She reacts very well — that's usually a genetic thing, but it's one of those things, nevertheless."
Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner work in the West Wing and live in the Kalorama section of Washington, D.C., about two miles from the White House.
