“Well we have so many different ones to choose,” the Republican presidential nominee said in an interview with First Coast News that was first reported by Buzzfeed.

The interview was conducted by First Coast anchor Angelia Savage, who used to work for the mogul at the Trump Organization.

“I can tell you everybody would say, ‘Put Ivanka in, put Ivanka in,’ you know that, right?” Trump added, according to a transcript given to Buzzfeed.

“She’s very popular, she’s done very well, and you know Ivanka very well. But there really are so many that are really talented people — like you, you’re so talented, but I don’t know if your viewers know that,” he said to Savage.
