Ivanka Trump says child tax credit 'not a pet project'
BAYVILLE, N.J.- Ivanka says she doesn't consider her efforts to boost the child tax credit to be a "pet project."
The presidential daughter and adviser has been on the road to sell the Republican tax overhaul plan, after months of behind-the-scenes work on the policy. She calls the child tax credit a "major initiative" for "middle-income tax relief."
Trump, who'd already been to Japan, California and Maine in the previous two weeks, spent Monday zipping from a morning television interview in New York City to a tax event at the New Jersey shore, grabbing a quick face-time moment on the train with her kids along the way. From New Jersey, she was back on the train headed to Washington for a workforce development meeting.
