Washington Post Twitter

Could Ivanka Trump have become not just the first daughter, but also the Vice President of the United States? Well according to a new report from The Washington Post it may very well have been the case. And The New York Times has put Ivanka at the center of her father’s tax problems.

The Post revealed the information with excerpts from former Donald Trump 2016 campaign chair Rick Gates new book “Wicked Game.”

The President reportedly said about his daughter:
“I think it should be Ivanka. What about Ivanka as my VP?”
“She’s bright, she’s smart, she’s beautiful, and the people would love her!”

From the book’s official description:
In up-close detail, Rick takes us through his personal journey to explain how Trump defied the odds, the polls, and even his own party to become the 45th president of the United States. He shares pivotal moments behind the scenes of the campaign and inauguration that have never been shared before, revealing critical decisions and political tactics that explain how Donald Trump was able to upset the entire Republican political establishment and beat a system built on centuries-old traditions. He also shows us how Donald Trump brought his personal brand to the presidency and how, in the end, the political establishment had no choice but to adapt to him—because Trump would never adapt to them.

Meanwhile The New York Times has reported that Ivanka Trump was paid quite a lot of money as an “advisor” to her father’s businesses, including those where she was already a salaried employee. This was done to funnel company money to her which was then written off as a business expense.

The Times wrote, “Ivanka Trump, while working as an employee of the Trump Organization, appears to have received “consulting fees” that also helped reduce the family’s tax bill.” A $747,622 consulting fee was once recorded by the Trump Organization as having been paid out and this just by coincidence is the same amount that Ivanka Trump reported being paid at the same time when she made financial disclosures before joining the White House staff. “

Its report also stated, “Like her brothers Donald Jr. and Eric, Ms. Trump was a longtime employee of the Trump Organization and an executive officer for more than 200 Trump companies that licensed or managed hotel and resort properties. The tax records show that the three siblings had each drawn a salary from their father’s company — roughly $480,000 a year, jumping to about $2 million after Mr. Trump became president — though Ms. Trump no longer receives a salary.”
