Laying the Foundation

Ivanka Trump

is putting in a good word
for her father Donald

by saying the candidate
has "elevated" the country's politics

which may be true

if she means that our political dialogue
has nowhere to go but up

or if by defining our values
against Trump's

we can build a bigger and better wall
around and above him.
