President Donald Trump over the weekend made the claim that his daughter Ivanka Trump has created “millions of jobs.”

The assertion came as Trump addressed a gathering of governors at the White House on Sunday.

“My daughter’s created millions of jobs,” the president remarked, without mentioning Ivanka by name. “I don’t know if anyone knows that, but she’s created millions of jobs.”

Trump did not explain what he meant by the statement.
