During her address to the Republican National Committee Convention from the White House, first daughter Ivanka Trump attempted to humanize her father by telling a story of her son building a LEGO model of the White House.
Trump biographer Andrea Berstein, the Peabody Award-winning journalist who wrote the 2020 book, American Oligarchs: The Kushners, the Trumps, and the Marriage of Money and Power Hardcover, had heard a similar story before, although in the earlier telling the story was about Ivanka herself.
President Donald Trump also told a similar story, involving his brother Robert and toy blocks.
Ivanka also told the story about herself while being interviewed by Conan O’Brien in 2007.
