Trump Breaks With His Party To Propose 6 Weeks Paid Maternity Leave

"Respectfully, Hillary Clinton has been around for decades and there's no policy benefitting either mothers or fathers in terms of paid leave", Ms. Trump said.

And later in the day: "Several hours later a separate but equally divided panel of that same Cincinnati-based appellate court largely upheld restrictions enacted by the GOP-dominated legislature in 2014 and signed by Republican Gov. John Kasich".

The Trump campaign hit back, arguing that their plan is more complete than Clinton's.

Ivanka Trump, 34, a top executive at the Trump Organization, has three children with Jared Kushner, a real estate developer and publishing mogul who hails from a prominent New Jersey political family and is also one of the candidate's top advisers.

Mr. Trump's other policy plan on the table, child care, is also untenable.

Multiple media outlets questioned whether Melania Trump, who was born and raised in Slovenia, came to the country legally after a series of racy photographs said to have been taken in NY in 1995 resurfaced last month. "Families with a stay-at-home parent will be able to fully deduct the average cost of child care from their taxes", the Republican nominee said, as "Wow" emitted from a few women in the crowd.

Donald Trump formally unveiled his child care and maternity plan with his daughter Ivanka Trump this evening.

Through changes in companies' unemployment insurance policies, Trump would guarantee six weeks of paid maternity leave to employees whose firms don't offer leave already, his campaign said.

"The choice could not be more clear between Hillary Clinton's comprehensive paid family leave and childcare plans geared toward the needs of 21st century families and Donald Trump's 11th hour giveaway to wealthy families like himself", senior policy advisor Maya Harris. If passed, it would federally mandate 12-week paid family leave for both mothers and fathers.

Like many of Trump's plans, when the subject of payment comes up, he's either vague or wrong.

It's for a meaningful debate on paid family leave, and our leaders in Washington are now in the spotlight to solve it. Trump has brought Republicans to the table - now let's get to work. To achieve this goal, Clinton would seek to boost federal spending on child care subsidies and provide "tax relief for the cost of child care to working families".

Trump said this is something his daughter Ivanka, herself a new mother, has been begging him to do for a long time. The deductions are capped at the average cost of child care in each state.

The billionaire real-estate developer's pitch to working parents comes as the race has tightened in recent weeks, particularly in so-called Rust Belt states including Pennsylvania and OH where Trump has sought to focus on economic malaise. McCloskey estimated her plan would cost no more than $5 billion a year, because of its cost of about $1,800 per birth, even if every working woman in the United States who had a child took the benefit.

Trump's child care plan is the epitome of what he has proven to do best: a bunch of nonsensical words that sound nice together cemented in promises that can in no way be kept.

Hillary Clinton proposes that no family should spend more than 10 percent of its income on child care. His proposal, for six weeks of maternity leave, is an intriguing entrant to the debate about how to help ensure that everyone can be there when the people they love need them most.

More importantly, tax credits are a progressive benefit. Plus, the limited benefit would constitute an improvement for those mothers who now get no paid leave at all.
