Trump noted that jobs in technology exist in numerous other areas from the medical field to the financial sector, and argued that technology education “must begin well before college or trade school.”

“We will continue to focus on placing our citizens on a pathway to a job — starting with K-12 curricula, but also continuing through vocational, skill-based training and apprenticeship programs, including the re-training of displaced workers,” she wrote. 

During her time working in her father’s administration, Trump has also pushed for paid family leave. In June she met with GOP senators on Capitol Hill to discuss the issue in addition to the Child Tax Credit.
