"So you and Ivanka are friendly, I know," Leive said. "If you got to ask her a question about how her father would do that, what would it be?"

"It would be that question: 'How would your father do that?'" Clinton responded.

"Given it's not something that he has spoken about, there are no policies on any of those fronts that you just mentioned on his website — not last week, not this week," she continued. "So I think the 'how' question is super important. In politics as it is in life."

"Whether that's on gun control or protecting a woman's right to choose or any of the things we've talked about. She also tells you how she's going to pay for it," Chelsea Clinton said of the Democratic nominee.

"It's something I hope would matter to that traditional Republican voter."
