It was 3 a.m. ET by the time Donald Trump made his president-elect speech, but his family was out in full force to support him — despite the lateness of the hour. Lining the stage to watch him speak were his children, wife, family, friends, campaign staff, and more. Trump took time to give personal thank yous to many who flanked him on the stage, including his kids. And, Ivanka Trump's reaction to Donald's victory speech shows that she's very proud of her father. Though she didn't say anything, it was all in her body language as she clapped, smiled, and kissed her father on the cheek to celebrate his win.
Donald thanked his parents, siblings, and wife Melania before singling out his children. "Ivanka and Eric and Tiffany and Barron, I love you and I thank you — especially for putting up with all of those hours. This was tough," Donald said. "What a great group, you've all given me such great support."
Ivanka's reaction wasn't overly animated, but she did seem genuinely happy. She's also been posting about her father all day on social media, talking about how excited she was to cast her vote for him and what it was like watching the voting numbers climb towards his victory.
I'm sure soon she'll post a lengthier status or make a statement about her father's victory. But, for now, her wide smile on election night said it all.
