President Donald Trump surprised his daughter, Ivanka, by inviting her on stage to speak to his supporters during a Wednesday rally in North Dakota. He also revealed that he still likes it when his daughter refers to him as “daddy.”
The president said his daughter asked him if she could travel with him to North Dakota.
“She actually said, 'Daddy, can I go with you?' ... And I said, 'Yes, you can,'” Trump said, adding that he “likes that.”

Several reporters clearly found it odd that a father would like his 35-year-old daughter to call him “daddy”:

When Ivanka made it to the microphone, she delivered a short message to the crowd.
“Hi, North Dakota. We love this state, so it's always a pleasure to be back here,” she said. “You treated us very, very well in November and have continued to. So we like sharing the love back. Thank you.”
President Trump was in North Dakota to push his tax reform package, which includes lowering the corporate tax rate to 15 percent.
