GUNS/IVANKA/MASS SHOOTINGS/TRUMP FAMILY: “Mayor Lori Lightfoot of Chicago harshly criticized Ivanka Trump on Tuesday [8-6-19] after the president’s daughter weighed in on that city’s weekend of violence. Just after noon, Ms. Trump, a White House adviser, wrote on Twitter that ‘with seven dead and 52 wounded near a playground in the Windy City,’ the nation ‘mustn’t become numb’ to inner-city violence even as it reels from two mass shootings that killed dozens last weekend. The problem? Ms. Trump’s second tweet was not entirely accurate, according to Ms. Lightfoot. The numbers cited, seven dead and 52 wounded, included all the people in the city who were killed or hurt by gunfire over the weekend; they did not reflect the toll of a single shooting…The mayor’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Wednesday [8-7-19], but at the Tuesday news conference, Ms. Lightfoot lamented that there had been “zero contact” between Ms. Trump and the city before the tweets were published.”

CONGRESS/GOP/IVANKA/RACISM/RALLY/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “Nervous Republicans, from senior members of Congress to his own daughter Ivanka, urged President Trump on Thursday [7-18-19] to repudiate the ‘send her back’ chant directed at a Somali-born congresswoman during his speech the night before at a rally in North Carolina, amid widespread fears that the rally had veered into territory that could hurt their party in 2020. In response, Mr. Trump disavowed the behavior of his own supporters in comments to reporters at the White House and claimed that he had tried to contain it, an assertion clearly contradicted by video of the event. Mr. Trump said he was ‘not happy’ with the chant directed at Representative Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, a freshman Democrat who is Muslim…Pressed on why he did not stop it, Mr. Trump said, ‘I think I did — I started speaking very quickly.’’ In fact, as the crowd roared ‘send her back,’ Mr. Trump paused and looked around silently for more than 10 seconds as the scene unfolded in front of him, doing nothing to halt the chorus. ‘I didn’t say that,’ he added. ‘They did.’”

IVANKA/NORTH KOREA/SOUTH KOREA/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “Set against a tense, eerie silence in the landmine-riddled mountains separating South and North Korea, the Demilitarized Zone may be the highest-stakes negotiation site on earth. It’s not the sort of place for mistakes. It is the latest spot where Ivanka Trump has tried her hand at statecraft. On Sunday [6-30-19], Ms. Trump, the president’s elder daughter, used an impromptu meeting between her father and Kim Jong-un, the North Korean leader, to further slip into the role of unofficial spokeswoman and budding stateswoman for the Trump administration. With her husband, fellow senior adviser Jared Kushner, at her side, Ms. Trump delivered news interviews, posed for photos and met Mr. Kim. Earlier in the day, Ms. Trump had repeated what her father has often said about dealing with the North: that it would be free of crippling sanctions and clear for an economic boom if Mr. Kim were to dismantle his nuclear program. Scant evidence suggests that Mr. Kim is taking the steps to do this, but on Sunday, two Trumps rewarded him with a visit.”

BUSINESS/IVANKA/JARED KUSHNER/TRUMP BUSINESS: “In their second year of government service, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner reported income from their companies and investments of as much as $135 million, according to their annual financial disclosure reports made public on Friday [6-14-19]. All told, the couple’s real estate holdings and other investments were worth as much as $786 million, down slightly from 2017. Their total annual income was between $29 million and $135 million, a range that was lower than what they reported in 2017. Mr. Kushner’s partial ownership of his family-run real estate business, Kushner Companies, has drawn criticism from ethics experts, particularly as the firm has solicited investments from foreign sources, including in the Middle East, where Mr. Kushner is a top White House liaison. Although Mr. Kushner held on to the bulk of his stake in the company, which he once ran, he sold some of his assets to a trust controlled by his mother. One of those divested assets was his share in Kushner Companies’ flagship property at 666 Fifth Avenue in Manhattan.”

IVANKA/WORLD BANK: “White House senior adviser Ivanka Trump says her father asked her if she was interested in the job of World Bank chief but she passed on it. In an Associated Press interview, President Donald Trump’s daughter said Wednesday she was happy with her current role in the administration. She was traveling in Africa to promote a global women’s initiative. Ivanka Trump said her father raised the job as ‘a question’ and she told him she was ‘happy with the work’ she’s doing…Ivanka Trump worked on the selection process for the new head of the 189-nation World Bank, David Malpass. She said he’ll do an ‘incredible job.’ Asked if her father had approached her about other top jobs, Ivanka Trump said she’d ‘keep that between’ them. She said she doesn’t see a run for office in her future.”

IVANKA/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “Ivanka Trump is the eldest daughter of Donald Trump. And a senior adviser in his White House. And, according to her, she could have been the head of the World Bank, too. In an interview with the Associated Press in the Ivory Coast (she’s in Africa along with the head of USAID) Ivanka Trump said she talked to her father about the opening but decided against the job — preferring to stay on in her current role, which has a very fuzzy job description but puts her in the mix on virtually every issue that comes across her father’s desk. Trump himself is effusive when talking about Ivanka. In a recent interview with The Atlantic, Trump says his eldest daughter ‘would’ve been great at the United Nations’ and acknowledged that ‘I even thought of Ivanka for the World Bank. … She would’ve been great at that because she’s very good with numbers’…That’s not happening. Yet. (Ivanka told the AP that she does not see a run for elected office in her future.) But whatever Ivanka Trump winds up doing in the future when it comes to politics, the fact that her father basically sees her as a perfect fit for every position in government — including his own — is a telling window into a) how much power she has in this White House and b) how little Trump differentiates between his personal life and his day job.”

IVANKA/NOMINATIONS/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/TRUMP FAMILY/WORLD BANK: “President Donald Trump considered nominating his oldest daughter, Ivanka Trump, to lead the World Bank, according to an interview published Friday [4-12-19] in which he also talked up his daughter’s future presidential bona fides. In an interview with The Atlantic, the president showered praise over all of his children, noting that his oldest son, Donald Trump Jr., a frequent fixture at political rallies, had really enjoyed his foray into politics, as has son Eric Trump. But the president was especially complimentary of a Trump child who has mostly stayed quiet about her political ambitions: Ivanka Trump. He even confirmed he’d considered picking her for a post in his administration…Trump confirmed he had seriously considered nominating his eldest daughter for a vacancy leading the World Bank, a rumor that drew backlash from the president’s opponents…Ivanka Trump, a senior adviser to her father, has long been the subject of intense interest from outside the White House.”

IVANKA/RUSSIA INVESTIGATION/TRUMP PEOPLE: “Rhona Graff, President Trump’s longtime executive assistant, was asked for documents related to foreign governments providing gifts or money to Ivanka Trump or her businesses. Anatoli Samochornov, the Russian translator who sat in on a meeting between Trump campaign officials and Russian lobbyists, was asked to hand over handwritten notes showing any capital investment from Russian entities to Ms. Trump or her businesses. And Jeff Sessions, the former attorney general, was asked for any documents related to loans or capital investments from Russians directed to Ms. Trump. The president’s elder daughter and top White House adviser was notably absent from a blitz of document requests that the House Judiciary Committee sent earlier this month to 81 individuals and organizations linked to the president. House Democrats have been cautious about targeting Ms. Trump and the other Trump children as they investigate the president, worried about triggering a backlash.”

IVANKA/JARED KUSHNER/MEDIA/RACISM/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “When Gary D. Cohn was considering resigning as the top White House economic adviser after President Trump blamed ‘both sides’ in a deadly white nationalist protest in Charlottesville, Va., his first stop was a meeting with Mr. Trump’s children. In a conversation in August 2017 with Ivanka Trump, the president’s eldest daughter and senior adviser, Mr. Cohn was shocked by her reaction to his concerns, according to a new book about Ms. Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner…Mr. Cohn ultimately did not resign over the Charlottesville episode, instead leaving after losing a battle over trade policy last year…But the episode permanently changed his view of Ms. Trump and Mr. Kushner, who are often painted as moderating influences on the president, according to ‘Kushner Inc.,’ by the journalist Vicky Ward. The book, which will be published by St. Martin’s Press on March 19, seeks to tell the behind-the-scenes story of Ms. Trump and Mr. Kushner’s rise to extraordinary power in the White House. Ms. Ward has said she spent two years interviewing 220 people for the book, granting many of them anonymity.”
