Ivanka Trump has West Wing In The White House with access to all information

A person with knowledge of Ivanka Trump’s thinking said she believes she can offer more independent perspective to her father.

Since President Donald Trump took office, Ivanka Trump has been cementing her role as the powerful first daughter and the iron lady of the White House.

Ivanka will not have an official title, but will get a West Wing office, government-issued communications devices and security clearance to access classified information, her attorney Jamie Gorelick, told the Associated Press. Gorelick said Ivanka Trump would follow the ethics rules that apply to government employees.

 

 

Her husband, Jared Kushner, already serves as a senior adviser, while Ivanka has attended high-level meetings, including in German Chancellor Angela Merkel first official visit.

Jamie Gorelick, an attorney and ethics adviser for Ivanka Trump, told Politico that her roll will be to serve as the president’s “eyes and ears” while providing broad-ranging advice.

 

 

Anti-nepotism laws prevent the president’s family members from being appointed to government positions. However, they can still advise him as private citizens, which is what Trump will be doing, her lawyer said.

According to AP, a person with knowledge of Ivanka Trump’s thinking said she believes she can offer more independent perspective to her father by not serving as a White House staffer.

“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,” Trump told the New York Times in a statement.
