Donald Trump's youngest daughter stepped out of the shadows and on to one of the largest stages in politics Tuesday on the second night of the Republican National Convention in Cleveland.
Speaking in the wake of a whirling scandal about her step-mother's RNC speech the night before, the 22-year-old UPENN grad started by admitting she was nervous.
"When I graduated college a couple of months ago, I never expected to be here tonight addressing the nation," Tiffany Trump said. "I've given a few speeches in front of classrooms of students, but never in an arena with more than 10 million people watching. But, like my father, I never back down from challenges. So here I am, a little new to the convention scene, but incredibly honored and very confident in the good man that America is coming to know."

She mostly continued on the theme of her family and her father being "strong," "encouraging," and determined.
"That's what he does," she said. "He draws out the talent and drive in people so that they can achieve their full potential. That's a great quality to have in a father, and better yet, in the President of the United States."
