President Trump Promotes Goal for Paid Family Leave

(AP) President Donald Trump says his administration wants to work with Republicans and Democrats to ensure paid family leave for new parents.

Trump is promoting a goal for paid family leave that he first mentioned at the Republican National Convention. It's an idea that Trump's daughter, Ivanka, has encouraged her father to embrace.

The president still has yet to flesh out a proposal or offer details about his paid family leave plan.

Trump says he wants to work to make childcare "accessible and affordable."
