Expanding the $1000 per child tax credit was the centerpiece of Ivanka Trump’s speech in Philadelphia. Though, she did not give a specific number on how much it would be expanded.
“We’re advocating strongly for the expansion of the child tax credit, we think it’s critically important to help offer American families much needed relief and prioritize what’s right for their families,” said Trump, the president’s eldest daughter.
She added, “This tax credit enables a family to decide what is a right investment for them and their child. It’s a very well-designed credit that will have a very big difference in the lives of families abut also can be unique to that individual family.”
Trump said it was very important to make the credit refundable and that it was vital to recognize what the “modern American family looks like.”
