Ivanka Trump’s role in her father’s administration has been growing smaller by the day, and, according to a new report, she and her husband Jared Kushner are already planning for their post-Washington life.
Ivanka and Kushner were once very active in President Trump’s day-to-day decision-making. However, now that John Kelly is White House Chief-of-Staff, Trump’s eldest daughter and son-in-law have been relegated to more of an advocacy role, doing things like hosting dinners, speaking with supporters, and meeting with lawmakers on both sides of the aisle in an effort to further Trump’s agenda. To be sure, those are important things – but Ivanka and Kushner are no longer members of the administrative inner circle like they used to be.
Furthermore, the pair have been meeting with some of the country’s top executives regarding job programs, private partnerships, and infrastructure, suggesting that they’re already planning for the future. What those plans are, of course, remain to be seen – but at least one person seems to think Ivanka is planning to follow in her father’s political footsteps.
Ivanka’s mother, Ivana Trump, is currently making the rounds promoting her new memoir, Raising Trump, and an excerpt published by Time reveals that she thinks her daughter has what it takes to be the first female POTUS: “I think Ivanka played a big part in Donald’s victory. Voters looked at her and thought, I like her. I trust her. She loves her father, so he can’t be that bad. Who knows? One day, she might be the first female — and Jewish — POTUS.”
As for Ivanka, she’s remained tight-lipped about her plans. However, she seems to possess both her father’s business savvy and charisma. Could she accomplish what Hillary Clinton couldn’t?
