Conservative HQ is reporting that Donald Trump rolled-out a new family care proposal last night. The plan, influenced it is said by his daughter Ivanka, was substantive and detailed, but it was met with near-silence from the establishment media and grumbling about warmed-over liberalism from many conservative commentators.
George Rasley, CHQ Editor writes,
Mark Levin, who recently came around and declared he was voting for Trump said, “Donald Trump is calling for 6 weeks of paid leave for maternity, which is warmed over liberalism. This proposed safety net for new mothers is liberal-speak for creating a new welfare program. Here we have more big-government proposals because Trump is, in his heart, a liberal with some conservative proposals.”
However, the idea that expanding childcare would be part of the Trump agenda has been on the table since the Republican National Convention. Ivanka Trump devoted a portion of her Republican National Convention speech to the topic, promising policies to help women and Trump said last month that child care would be a part of his economic plan.
