Chelsea Clinton: Things you may not know

Chelsea Clinton described her presidential nominee mother Thursday night as a woman of passion, strength, empathy and love who "never forgets what she's fighting for", and "never, ever gives up".

"It isn't something that had occurred to me, but it's something I would consider", Chelsea Clinton said on the Today show, when asked about convening a "children's summit" or "daughters summit" to discuss the tone of the campaign.

During her speech at the convention, Ivanka Trump proclaimed that her father would support women in and out of the workplace. "I've seen my mother promising to do everything she could to help", Chelsea Clinton said.

During her address to the RNC convention last week in Cleveland, Ivanka Trump argued that not only does her father believe in equal pay for equal work, but he's lived it through his companies. "Regardless of what has happened in my life, my mother was always, always there for me", she said.

When Hillary Clinton traveled for work, she would leave notes to be read by her daughter, one for each day.

Trump graduated from her father's alma mater, the University of Pennsylvania's prestigious business school. She made her first stop at Dunns River Jamaican restaurant in Hartford's North End, where she spoke for more than 30 minutes to about 100 hard-core supporters.

There's something else that my mother taught me: public service is about service. She performed exactly as expected-which is what one might anticipate from the young woman who Michelle Obama praised as "raised to perfection".

She has become a key asset to her mother's campaign, with a unique ability to make a personal pitch, softening and humanizing Hillary Clinton's image to that of a mother and grandmother.

But as she makes the case for her mother she has also notably been going on the offensive, directing attacks at Republican nominee Donald Trump.

Chelsea Clinton recalled talking to her parents at the dinner table about the book "A Wrinkle In Time" as a child.

But now, after trying to straddle a delicate balance of her own path and yet still upholding her familial obligations, she has returned to the starring role of political daughter.
