IVANKA/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/TRUMP BUSINESS: “Ivanka Trump became a full-time adviser to the President in March 2017 after informally advising her father, Donald Trump, during the first two months of his administration. Critics point out her lack of government experience, but defenders note her father ran a campaign explicitly on his record as a businessman and on the message of being an outsider and taking an unconventional approach to governing. While it’s unusual for a President’s child to serve an administration, it’s a familiar role for Trump — she had been her father’s trusted adviser through her young adulthood to her time as executive vice president at the Trump Organization, and, ultimately, to his 2016 presidential campaign. In the two years since joining the West Wing staff, Ivanka Trump has developed a cadre of signature issues, most of which have bipartisan support and are largely noncontroversial. The President’s eldest daughter does not receive a paycheck for her work, according to White House records. She reports to work regularly at the White House, where she has a second-floor West Wing office. On Tuesday [3-5-19], CNN reported that the President pressured top aides to grant his daughter and her husband, Jared Kushner, security clearances, despite their reservations, rankling other West Wing officials.”
