Trump: Ivanka said 'Daddy, can I come with you' to North Dakota

President Trump said that Ivanka Trump pleaded to come along to a tax reform event on Wednesday.

“She said, ‘Dad, can I come with you,” Trump said while introducing his daughter, who is also a White House adviser, at a speech in North Dakota. “Actually she said ‘Daddy, can I go with you?' I like that.”

“I said, 'Yes, you can,' " he added.

Trump called his daughter up to the stage at the event at the start of his speech.

“Look at Ivanka, come on up honey, she’s so good,” Trump said. “She wanted to make the trip.”

Trump frequently singles out his daughter and her work at speeches, most recently acknowledging her with a shout-out during a speech last week.

Ivanka Trump addressed the crowd as well on Wednesday.

"Hi, North Dakota, we love this state so it’s always a pleasure to be back here," she said.

"You treated us very very well in November and have continued to, so we like showing the love back," she added.

Trump traveled to North Dakota on Wednesday as part of his push to pass tax reform through Congress.

He spent several minutes at the top of his speech discussing topics other than tax reform and making introductions for those attending the event, including Sen.
