HILBERT (NBC26) — Ivanka Trump began Tuesday's campaign event at Brindlewood Barn in Hilbert by discussing her father's health, after recovering from COVID-19.

“I thank god he’s doing amazing," she said. "Some of you may have noticed he is very energetic.”

She understands what people are going through, Trump said.

“I know what millions of people here in this country and around the world have felt in terms of the anxiety and fear when somebody they love contracts COVID," she said.

President Trump has delivered on 2016 campaign promises like energy dependence, Trump said.

“Who would’ve imagined a decade ago that this country would be a net exporter of oil and gas?" she said.

She spoke about being present for discussions and meetings on the U.S. Mexico Canada Agreement, or USMCA, and how the president was always thinking about Wisconsinites.

"'How will the dairy farmer in Wisconsin like this deal?’" she said, quoting her father. "Policy is about people.”

She believes her father will win this state again this year.

“He’s so loved here because his economic agenda advances the interests of this great state, and are so directly tied to what the people of Wisconsin want," she said.

Eleanor Cook, a Trump supporter, says she's glad she came out today.

“I totally enjoyed her, she’s an amazing woman," she said.

Trump spoke about issues that are important to her, like fighting human trafficking, said Cook.

“It’s so dear to my heart because I know it’s been going on, oh my goodness, for the last 15 years that I’ve known about it," she said. "If president trump did not get elected, this would’ve never been exposed. We would've never seen the magnitude of people getting arrested and being targeted for just the evil, evil things that’s going on, not only in this country, but in this world.”

Ivanka Trump also addressed the current racial justice movement and anti-police sentiment in the country.

“There is a false narrative that’s brewing, that it’s a false choice between safe communities and supporting our men and women in blue, and also advancing the interests of our African American community across the nation," said Trump. "You can do both.”
