Republicans senators praised a Tuesday meeting on Capitol Hill with Ivanka Trump that included discussions about paid family leave.

Marco Rubio and Deb Fischer who have come out as leading GOP voices on the issue of paid family leave, lead the meeting with Trump, a senior White House adviser and first daughter.

“It’s so important to have Ivanka Trump use her platform to shine a light on the challenges working families face,” Fischer said in a statement. “I look forward to continuing to work with her on a way forward with policy solutions that can make a difference.”

While the meeting focused a lot on paid family leave — one of Trump’s top issues — it was focused on expanding the Child Tax Credit as part of Republican efforts on tax reform.

“It was a very positive meeting about the Child Tax Credit,” one Senate GOP aid told The Hill. “Ivanka was well briefed, engaged, and supportive.”
