President Trump’s First daughter Ivanka Trump has secured her own office on the west wing of the White House.
Ivanka trump who moved to Washington D.C, saying she would play no formal role in her father’s administration, is now officially setting up her office on the second floor of the White House, reports say.
Her attorney Jamie Gorelick told the press that Ivanka Trump is settling in as what appears to be a full-time staffer in her father’s administration, with a broad and growing portfolio. She will, however, not be sworn in or hold an official position and is not going to be receiving a salary.
According to reports, Ivanka Trump’s office will be located on the second floor next to senior adviser Dina Powell, who was recently promoted to a position on the National Security Council.
She is currently obtaining a security clearance and is set to receive government-issued communication devices this week.
Her role will be to serve as the President’s ”eyes and ears” while providing advice on both women empowerment issues and other White House issues.
In a statement released to Politico, Ivanka Trump said:
“I will continue to offer my father my candid advice and counsel, as I have for my entire life. While there is no modern precedent for an adult child of the president, I will voluntarily follow all of the ethics rules placed on government employees.”
The public has always questioned Ivanka’s role his father’s administration. She has always been seen at high-level meetings including the meeting with the Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and German Chancellor Angela Merkel before she formerly announced her relocation to Washington D.C. with her husband Jared Kushner.
The White House business is seemingly turning into a family business for the Trumps. Ivanka’s husband Jared Kushner was appointed a senior White House adviser by his father-in-law in January. Her siblings Donald Trump Jnr. and Eric Trump also has similar positions.
Ivanka Trump, like her father, has business interests throughout the country and across the world.
By gaining a position in the West Wing and getting access to classified information, she has drawn a new wave of scrutiny over conflicts in the administration between public roles and private interests.
