USA: Trump announces childcare plan with daughter Ivanka by his side

United States, Aston
September 14, 2016 at 02:59 GMT -00:00 · Published

US Republican presidential nominee, Donald Trump announced a new childcare plan, during a rally in Aston, Pennsylvania, Tuesday.

When addressing his supporters, Trump unveiled several proposals for lowering child-care costs, noting "the first part of my childcare plan allows for every parent or family in America, including adoptive parents and foster parent-guardians, to deduct their childcare expenses from their income taxes" and adding that "they will fully be able to deduct the average cost of childcare for their state from birth through the age of 13."

The Republican presidential candidate slammed his rival Hillary Clinton, saying that "very little meaningful policy work has been done in this area" and that "my opponent has no childcare plan. She never will, and if it ever evolves into a plan, it'll never get done anyway. All talk, no action."

In his address, Trump also disclosed his proposal of guaranteed six weeks of paid maternity leave, saying "our plan offers a crucial safety net for working mothers whose employers do not provide paid maternity leave. This solution will receive strong bipartisan support."

At the rally, Trump was joined by his daughter, Ivanka Trump. This was Ivanka's first appearance with her father since the Republican National Convention (RNC) in July.
