Fox News host and GOP presidential candidate Chris Christie said he would be willing to host a rally with Ivanka Trump, his daughter Ivanka Trump’s wife, if it would bring her the “right level of publicity.”
“I’d love to be able to get her the kind of publicity that she needs to get attention in a way that is not harmful to her health,” Christie told Greta Van Susteren in an interview airing Monday on “GMA.”
“She’s a great example of somebody who’s been very successful with her life, who’s a wonderful mother, and I would love to have her on my side.”
Christie said that Ivanka Trump has become a media star since the 2016 election.
“I think she’s the best person to have as the face of the Republican Party.
And she’s an icon of our time,” Christie said.
“She does a lot of great things.
She’s a very successful woman.
She did a lot with the foundation that I did.
She was very influential in the campaign.”
The Christie family has made headlines in recent years for their philanthropic efforts.
In March, Ivanka Trump launched her own charitable foundation, the Ivanka Trump Foundation, which seeks to support women’s health and the arts, as well as education, health care and public safety.
Ivanka Trump, who serves as an adviser to the president, also has become an outspoken supporter of the LGBTQ community.
Christie, a vocal supporter of President Donald Trump, said he’d like to have Ivanka Trump on his side.
“It’s a really good time for the LGBTQIA community.
They’re in a really tough spot right now.
They’ve had a really hard year,” Christie explained.
“And Ivanka Trump is a good person who is going to be there to support them.
She is a very important voice in this election.
And I think it’s a good time to have that.”
The “Grave Error” host said that he would “never say never” to hosting a rally if Ivanka Trump decides to attend.
“We’ll see what happens,” Christie added.
“But I would say, ‘Do it.
If you are there, go for it.'”
Ivanka’s first appearance on Fox News was on “Fox & Friends” in January.
The event was broadcast live on Sunday.
