I think this proposal is a gesture to lefties.
It's for his daughter Ivanka who is more to the left than Daddy but who has Daddy wrapped around her finger. She proposed this idea at the convention.

Said someone who has never had a newborn in their home.

Currently most places have a pretty good leave program in place for women. Not so much for men who frankly have their lives nearly as disrupted as women do, if they are worth a crap as a father anyway.

Depends on the length of time before I would agree with the rest of your post.
Fathers can take up to 12 weeks off right now with no pay via FMLA.

Ah, a good old thread where people most "concerned" about abortion and life also don't want the government to help parents, express their true anti family attitudes.

Absolutely NOT. I have no problem whatsoever with non-paid pregnancy leave - none whatsoever.
