Trump Credits Ivanka For Role In Creating '14 Million Jobs' Via Worker Pledge
President Donald Trump credited Ivanka for having “created 14 million jobs,” consistent with a pledge to boost American private sector employment and training, according to Yahoo News.
Trump attended and spoke at the Economic Club of New York on Tuesday and told the audience that his daughter, who currently serves as a key advisor to his administration and co-chairs the American Workforce Policy Advisory Board, exceeded her initial goals.
Although the White House site flaunts more than 300 private sector employers signatures for the Pledge for American Workers, which initially committed to creating 12 million education and training opportunities over 5 years, they remain pledges, not fully materialized jobs.
“She wants to makes these people have great lives,” Trump said. “When she started this two and a half years ago, her goal was 500,000 jobs.”
“She’s now created 14 million jobs. And they are being trained by these companies. The greatest companies in the world. Because the government can’t train them,” he continued.
