Ivana Marie “Ivanka” Trump was born October 30, 1981. Ivanka is an American television personality (featured on The Apprentice with her father and Gossip Girl with her husband, Jared Kushner), model, fashion designer, author and businesswoman who is an advisor to the President of the United States, Donald Trump. She is the daughter of the president and his first wife, former model Ivana Trump.
Ivanka graduated from Wharton business school in 2004 and married Jared Kushner in 2009.
In 2010, Ivanka and Kushner appeared in reality show, Gossip Girl, a show about rich New York east-side socialites.
Ivanka moved to Washington, D.C. in January 2017 as her husband, Jared Kushner, was appointed Senior Advisor to the President.
Ivanka was a spokeswoman for Trump during the 2016 elections, but was unable to vote for her father in the primaries as she missed the deadline to change her registration from Independant to Republican.
Ivanka was accused of trying to monetise the presidency, after she sent out an email about an original piece from her jewellery line, which she wore on an appearance on 60 minutes.
in late March 2017, she began serving in Donald Trump’s administration as Advisor to the President.
During Donald Trump’s first overseas as President, on a visit to Saudi Arabia, he skipped an event on his second day.
In his place, his daughter Ivanka trump gave a three minute speech, thanking the Saudi royals for their hospitality
The Justice Department has released a series of recently overruled legal memos concluding that presidents cannot appoint their relatives to the White House staff or presidential commissions, even to unpaid posts.
In January 2017, a Justice Department official essentially declared the earlier legal memos erroneous or obsolete, clearing the way for Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner and daughter Ivanka Trump, to take a senior adviser position in the White House.
The newly disclosed opinions, detail how Justice Department lawyers concluded for decades that such appointments of family members were illegal under an anti-nepotism law passed in 1967.
Bannon then spoke at length about the internal battles that existed within the White House. Bannon called the two sides “The Democrats” and the “Nationalists”. The Democrats, comprising Jared Kushner, Ivanka Trump, Gary Cohn, and Dina Powell. The Nationalists, comprising Bannon, Jeff Sessions, Stephen Miller, Sebastian Gorka, and Peter Navarro. Jared Kushner called the Nationalists either “the crazies” or “Breitbart”.
At the beginning of Trump’s presidency the Nationalists were particularly strong, about this time period, Bannon reflected:
“You had to be a disruptor and keep people on their back heels. That’s why we were doing three E.O.s a day. I told Reince that if you slow down, they’ll pick us apart with the palace intrigue stuff, which is what they really want to write.”
During his time in the White House, Bannon clashed with Kushner and Ivanka. Bannon said:
“He doesn’t know anything about the hobbits or the deplorables. The railhead of all bad decisions is the same railhead: Javanka.”
Trump decided to fire James Comey following a meeting with Kushner, Ivanka and Stephen Miller over the weekend of May 6 and 7, Bannon’s repsonse was:
“It’s the dumbest political decision in modern political history, bar none. A self-inflicted wound of massive proportions.”
Trump called an Oval Office meeting to broker peace between Bannon, Kushner, and Ivanka Trump, where the source of leaks was discussed. Trump tried to adjudicate, but the meeting did little to diffuse tensions.
[Steve Bannon] “She’s the queen of leaks.”
[Ivanka Trump] “You’re a fucking liar!”
Later in response to the latest Roy Moore allegations, Ivanka Trump told the Associated Press
“There’s a special place in hell for people who prey on children.”
In response Bannon referred to the California woman who alleged Trump raped her when she was a teen (the suit has since been dropped.)
“What about the allegations about her dad and that 13-year-old? Ivanka was a fount of bad advice during the campaign.”
