Some people were wondering if presidential daughter Ivanka Trump was at the 2018 State of the Union address because she didn’t get much screen time, especially not compared to usual.
Ivanka Trump was at the State of the Union. She attended with her husband, Jared Kushner, and she wore a patterned dress to the event (Ivanka’s style is much scrutinized). Here’s a photo of Ivanka Trump at the SOTU 2018. She walked into the hall with Kushner.
Ivanka’s fashion choice was more sedate than the red dress she previously wore when her father spoke to Congress. Some panned the red dress as inappropriate for the venue.
Ivanka Trump’s stepmother, First Lady Melania Trump, garnered more attention at the State of the Union address. She arrived separately from the president, which was a break in tradition, and she was seated with the president’s invited guests. Melania wrote a white pants suit that was reminiscent of the white pants suit that Hillary Clinton wore to Trump’s inauguration.
Here’s Melania’s white pants suit at the State of the Union:
Here’s Hillary Clinton’s white pants suit on inauguration day:
President Trump’s speech focused on the issues he cares about, from immigration reform to tax reform to the strength of the U.S. military and the heroics of firefighters, police officers, and veterans.
