Republican presidential front runner Donald Trump rolled out his not-so-secret weapon on Monday, releasing a 60-second radio advertisement featuring his daughter, Ivanka Trump.

“When I was a young girl, my father, Donald Trump, always told me I could do anything that I set my mind to if I coupled vision with determination and hard work,” Ivanka says during the spot. “My father is a man who is deeply grounded in tradition. He raised my siblings and me to work hard and strive for excellence in all we do. He taught us to inspire and to gain respect in life and in business you have to earn it.”

Ivanka then highlights the times she witnessed her father making deals, that looked impossible at the time, and concludes: “As president my father will keep his word. He’ll never quit fighting for this country and its future and he will make America great again.”

The Trump campaign said it would release the spot in both Iowa and New Hampshire.

“My family has been so supportive of me and my candidacy and I am so proud of Ivanka. She is a terrific person, a devoted mother and an exceptional entrepreneur. Ivanka is doing a fantastic job running my company, alongside her brothers, and is building many of my biggest jobs. It is so important to have the support of all of my children and I’m really proud of this ad,” Mr. Trump said in a statement.
